Six seasons and a movie! Community has been cancelled and renewed more times than I can count but it looks like Joel McHale and the rest of Greendale Community College may actually reach their goal. Yahoo has picked up the series for at least one more season.
Yahoo broke the news on Tumblr, writing: “And the crowd goes wild… the Darkest Timeline is over. Community is coming to Yahoo! Beginning later this Fall, tune into Yahoo for the highly-anticipated sixth season, with 13 new episodes available exclusively on Yahoo Screen.”
Community has built up a cult following over the years but the series was never able to score major ratings. The series has been living in the shadow of cancellation since season three. Major stars have left the show (Chevy Chase and Donald Glover) and show runners Dan Harmon has been both fired and rehired. But it looks like #SixSeasonsAndAMovie could become a reality.
Harmon said: “I am very pleased that Community will be returning for its predestined sixth season on Yahoo,” comments Dan Harmon. “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!”
The fans aren’t the only ones excited about the news.

Are you excited for the 6th season of Community? Do you think Yahoo we’ll produce a movie?
