Na een mislukte poging bij Netflix en Hulu, is comedyserie Community nu alsnog gered. Yahoo Screen zal een zesde seizoen maken van dertien afleveringen. Deze wordt geproduceerd door bedenker Dan Harmon. Russ Krasnoff, Gary Foster en Chris McKenna zijn uitvoerend producenten.
Harmon: “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!”
Joel McHale: “‘The reports of our cancellation have been greatly exaggerated.’ —Mark Twain (The other version of this quote has been wrong for years). #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.”
Kathy Savitt, CMO van Yahoo: “Yahoo is all about connecting the best creators to the audiences who love their work. ‘Community’ has an incredibly passionate and loyal fan base who have fought hard to keep this amazing show alive. We couldn’t be more excited to work with Dan, Joel, and the entire cast, as well as Sony, to deliver a great season 6.”
