Dan Harmon is officially returning to Community.

The show's creator confirmed the news via Twitter Saturday after a follower asked him to "give a straight answer" regarding whether or not he would be coming back to the NBC comedy for season five.

"Yes yes yes! I'm back I'm back I'm back. You can thank @joelmchale," Harmon tweeted Saturday.

Harmon's Twitter confirmation comes just a few days after he revealed he was extended an invitation to return to Community, but didn't confirm at the time whether he would accept it.

Happy Endings writers David Guarascio and Moses Port replaced the showrunner during the show's fourth season, after Harmon was fired by Sony a little over a year ago.

Following Harmon's announcement, Community star Gillian Jacobs cheered on his return, tweeting, Welcome back, ‪@danharmon! E Pluribus Anus!"

(E! and Community are both part of the NBCUniversal family).
