'Community' Returning for Sixth Season on Yahoo Screen


Community Cast

 

Rejoice Greendale devotees! In negotiations that literally went down to the last possible day, Yahoo Screen has opted to pick-up cult sitcom Community for a 13-episode sixth season. This means that Dan Harmon's little comedy that could is one step closer to accomplishing the fan-demanded goal of producing six seasons and a movie. Harmon will return as showrunner, as will the entire core cast outside of the already departed Chevy Chase and Donald Glover.

Community previously aired on NBC for five seasons between fall 2009 and spring 2014. Despite low ratings, the show pulled out renewal after renewal until the Peacock finally dropped the ax earlier this year. Thankfully for "Human Beings" everywhere, Community's fanbase and creators absolutely refused to let the show die. The premiere date of Community Season 6 has yet to be announced.

Yahoo has not announced any plans to charge for the right to view Community. One would assume new Community episodes will be ad-supported, similarly to how they air on Hulu.

Following on from Giskard's comment - Yahoo Screen appears to be a bunch of short clips which can be seen for free. Are Yahoo proposing to charge for watching Community?

The only two not returning are Chevy Chase, and Donald Glover. Although I wouldnt be suprised if Donald makes some guest apperances.

Wow - that's pretty damn amazing.. But, if the original cast doesn't return, it shouldn't be called Community :p
