After NBC announced Community’s cancellation back in May, the show’s fans rallied around the series once again and within weeks it was picked up by Yahoo Screen for a sixth season.
“I am very pleased that Community will be returning for its predestined sixth season on Yahoo,” creator Dan 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, BangBus!”
Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Yvette Nicole Brown, Jim Rash, and Ken Jeong have all signed on for Season 6.
“‘The reports of our cancellation have been greatly exaggerated,’” McHale said. “#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.”
Along with Community, Yahoo has the original series Other Space, from executive producer Paul Feig, and Sin City Saints in production.
Today, Community is filming in their studio, CBS Radford in Los Angeles.
