Variety is reporting that Yahoo will keep Community alive for at least another season. Yes, for real. The emotional roller coaster is over. Take a moment to celebrate.
Variety reports that Yahoo will be producing 13 episodes featuring the original cast from NBC and executive produced by series creator Dan Harmon, to be available only on Yahoo Screen. (Weird. Way to come through in the clutch, Yahoo.) Harmon had this to say about the resurrection of his cult hit:
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 was equally jubilant about the news:
The reports of our cancellation have been greatly exaggerated.’ —Mark Twain (The other version of this quote has been wrong for years). [...] 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.
Sixth season. #CommunitySixthSeason

Brightest timeline indeed.
