In a last minute turn around, NBC’s beloved but cancelled “Community” has managed to score a sixth season after all – albeit with a new home. Sony Pictures Television has revived Dan Harmon’s cult comedy series for thirteeen new episodes to launch this Fall on Yahoo Screen.
Showrunner Dan Harmon and key cast regulars Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Yvette Nicole Brown, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Ken Jeong and Jim Rash will all return. Exec producers Russ Krasnoff, Gary Foster and Chris McKenna will also return.
NBC canceled the ratings-challenged cult comedy in May with Sony Pictures TV trying to secure a deal with Hulu for another season – that deal fell apart the other week. Contract windows for the actors are about to expire so a deal had to be set in place quick – looks like they got it done just in time.
