Coummunity Lives Yahoo

Yahoo Pick ups Community for a Sixth Season. NBC‘s canceled Community TV series has been given a 6th season on Yahoo Screen. The comedy TV series will stream on Yahoo for 13 episodes.

On the company and people behind Community‘s Yahoo deal:

Yahoo has made a deal with producer Sony Pictures Television to stream a 13-episode sixth season of the show. Show creator Dan Harmon will return as showrunner…Chris McKenna is in talks to return as exec producer.

Dan Harmon had this to say about the deal:

I am very pleased that Community will be returning for its predestined sixth season on Yahoo. 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!

Community‘s premise:

When his law firm discovers Jeff Winger lied about having a bachelor’s degree, he’s suspended and has no choice but to enroll at Greendale Community College to get one. Jeff quickly becomes attracted to Britta Perry, and pretends he runs a study group in order to spend time with her. But his plans go awry when other classmates are invited along: Abed Nadir, Shirley Bennett, Annie Edison, Troy Barnes, and Pierce Hawthorne.

Despite their differences, the members of the study group quickly became close friends. While taking select classes together semester after semester, they’re often roped into helping the flamboyant Dean Craig Pelton in his schemes to make the school seem more reputable, as well as having to deal with the antics of their unhinged teacher/classmate Ben Chang.
