Community lives on! Yahoo saves Greendale for a sixth season


Community lives! After both NBC and Hulu passed on renewing the quirky show for its sixth season, Yahoo has come in and saved Greendale from closure and is reviving the show for a sixth season. While Yahoo cannot guarantee that there’ll be a movie, they can guarantee that creator Dan Harmon and castmembers Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Yvette Nicole Brown, Jim Rash and Ken Jeong are coming back as all of them are signed on for season six. Pop pop!

“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, BangBus!”


“‘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.”

After five seasons of so-so ratings, NBC finally pulled the plug on the comedy back in May. Plunging into the darkest timeline, fans never gave up hope that another outlet would revive the show for a sixth season — and hopefully a movie. With Yahoo saving the day, fans can wave their Greendale Human Beings flag with victorious fervor.

Yet with Donald Glover leaving the show in season five, our hope is that the show’s revival on Yahoo doesn’t degrade its quality as it did with Arrested Development on Netflix. Then again, Harmon did mention something about doing everything he can to bring back Glover for the sixth season, saying: “I’m just going to go home, kill a chicken, drink its blood, make a Blair Witch thing out of its bones, pray to every deity that I have to that if we do get a sixth season that Donald will have tired of his Donald-ness.” Let’s hope that happens too.

Community returns for its sixth season this Fall on Yahoo.
