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.”
