Yahoo! Rips 'Community' From the Subway in TV Heaven, Picks It Up for a Sixth Season
With only hours to go before the contracts of the principal actors expired, and days after Hulu abandoned negotiations, Yahoo! has stepped in and picked up Community, renewing it for a sixth season for 13 full episodes.
Harmon and Co. will all return, profanities will be allowed, and Greendale will be available inside your computer.
Obligatory statements, via EW:
“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!”
Added McHale: “‘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.”
