Class, incredibly, will be back in session this fall at Greendale Community College.
Yahoo stunned Community fans in the best possible way this afternoon, announcing that it has reached a deal with Sony Television to air 13 episodes of the now-former NBC sitcom on Yahoo Screen later this year.
The critically-beloved, ratings-challenged series was canceled by NBC in May.
"I am very pleased that Community will be returning for its predestined sixth season on Yahoo,” said creator Dan Harmon, who will once again. “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 awesome star Joel 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."
Kathy Savitt, CMO of Yahoo, cited the program's “incredibly passionate and loyal fan base” as a factor in the surprising pickup, adding:
“We couldn’t be more excited to work with Dan, Joel, and the entire cast, as well as Sony, to deliver a great season 6."
