Yahoo has inked a deal to bring back canceled comedy “Community” for a 13-episode sixth season.
Canceled last month by NBC, Community has garnered interest from several networks due to its cult status among viewers. According to Deadline.com, the Sony TV-produced show had Hulu, Crackle, and Esquire among possible suitors.
Creator Dan Harmon will be back as Executive Producer of the show.
“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!” Harmon released in a statement.
Not immediately clear is which of the cast members are returning, with stars Donald Glover and Chevy Chase having left the series in recent years.
The series will air on Yahoo Screen. A premiere date has not yet been set.
