It’s been a long journey, but Community’s sixth season is finally set to premiere on Yahoo March 17, the streaming service announced Tuesday via a video promo. Yahoo will premiere two episodes on March 17, followed by one episode each week after that, for a total of 13.
Community premiered on NBC in 2009, but could not muster the ratings it needed to survive. NBC execs fired creator Dan Harmon after season three, but then brought him back for the fifth season last year in hopes of reviving interest in the show. Ultimately, the network decided to cancel the comedy last May.
Luckily for Community fans, Yahoo and Harmon are reviving the show yet again, bringing back cast members like Joel McHale, Alison Brie, Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash, Ken Jeong and Danny Pudi and even adding Paget Brewster. (Donald Glover, Chevy Chase, Yvette Nicole Brown, Jonathan Banks and John Oliver will not appear on season six.)
The cast and crew have suggested that they ultimately hope to create six seasons and a movie. Harmon even said last year that the group banning together to search for Donald Glover’s character is “what movies are made of.” But as of yet, no pans for a film have been confirmed.
