And the dream of six seasons and a movie lives on!
In news that is sure to make fans everywhere say "Cool. Cool cool cool," Community has been rescued from cancellation by Yahoo Screen, E! News has confirmed. We repeat: Cool. Cool cool cool!
After being axed by NBC in May, Yahoo Screen has reached a deal with Sony Pictures Television to bring Dan Harmon's little-show-that-could back for a 13-episode sixth season.
Along with Harmon as showrunner, stars Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Yvette Nicole Brown, Jim Rash and Ken Jeong are all set to return for the sixth season. The deal comes just as Sony's hold on the series' actors was set to expire on July 1.
"I am very pleased that Community will be returning for its predestined sixth season on Yahoo," Harmon said in a statement. "I look forward to bringing our beloved NBC sitcom to a larger audience by moving it online. I vow to dominate our new competition. Rest easy, Big Bang Theory. Look out, Bang Bus!"
McHale added, "The reports of our cancelation have been greatly exaggerated." ---Mark Twain (The other version of this quote has been wrong for years). # SixSeasonsAndaMovie is real. Thank you Sony. Thank you Yahoo. Thank you Dan Harmon. And thank you to the greatest f%$#ing fans in the history of the human race. It's the internet. We can swear now."
And the darkest timeline has officially ended. Let's take this celebration to the comments, shall we?!
