Yahoo Picks Up ‘Community’ for Season 6

Community cast and producers
Earlier in May, NBC announced that after five troubled seasons they had finally pulled the plug on the cult sitcom Community; one season and a movie shy of the program’s signature catchphrase.

Rumors have flown fast and furious since that the show would somehow be resurrected and put into production by a cable channel and/or streaming service, but many had their doubts. On Wednesday, however, the speculation was put to rest as it was announced that Yahoo will be creating the show’s sixth season; to be available via their newly launched Yahoo Screen service.

Series creator and showrunner (for all but the largely dismissed fourth season), Dan Harmon (PeekYou profile here), was quoted as saying of the pick-up; “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!”

As we wrote in here of Community previously; “The dense, arch, surreal, deeply satirical, and multi-layered program, deconstructed and mocked television and film tropes, while also simultaneously and miraculously portraying characters the audience could care about. It was, in many ways, one of the more adventurous and legitimately creative programs ever broadcast on network TV. While not necessarily as brilliant as its worshipful cult might have had it, and definitely a bit too clever by half at times, it was always admirable.”

And wasn’t that a mouthful?

Now, we tie this in what we do: The cast of the program — well, most of them at least, plus the show’s mastermind, the above-mentioned Mr. Harmon — sorted out by their PeekScores; measuring the varying degrees to which they’re each prominent, active, and making an impact in cyberspace.
