Yahoo has announced a takeover of the series for 13 more episodes.
Yahoo!’s planned foray into long form digital content was met with some confusion when the appointed executive producers of the new projects Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) and Mike Tollin (Smallville) made the announcement at Digital Content NewFronts back in April. However, after a Community revival was announced as one of the first projects, viewers’ doubts seem to have been assuaged.
Yahoo had the show's devoted fanbase in mind, when acquiring the rights.
The deal was announced earlier this week, with creator Dan Harmon saying in a statement: . "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."

Community fans and cast welcome Harmon's triumphant return.
Finally, after an outcry from Community fans, series creator Dan Harmon is returning to the show once again. Harmon exited, or rather, was fired from Community after season two, over some kind of disagreement. The exact events that led to his departure remain a mystery, but the whole story included an affected voicemail from Community actor Chevy Chase. Chase also left the show recently, in November 2012.
While the deal hasn’t been finalized, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Harmon would be returning on a two-year contract, along with writer and executive producer Chris McKenna, who exited the series in May 2012 after signing a two-year overall deal with Universal Television. Harmon replaces David Guarascio and Moses Port as the showrunner for the comedy, which has had a turbulent run, to say the least. Community got cancelled by NBC after just two seasons, but was then brought back after fans wrote angry emails and signed petitions, as netizens are so good at doing. The story was that the internal conflicts led to Harmon’s firing, but both critics and viewers have noticed that the series has lost something of its trademark sense of humor after the switch.
The news of Harmon's return comes after word leaked over Memorial Day weekend that the writer/executive producer was asked to return to Community during a taping of his Harmontown podcast. The deal hasn’t been formalized yet, but both Harmon and McKenna are expected to close in the next few days. One of the show’s stars, Gillian Jacobs, congratulated him over Twitter: "Welcome back, @danharmon! E Pluribus Anus!" Community reference, of course.

Fans of the instant cult hit Community were distraught last month when the return of the show was put back indefinitely. In the largely uncertain world of television, many questioned whether the show would return at all. However, NBC has now confirmed that the comedy, set around a mishmash of students in a community college, will be returning to its regular Thursday time slot next February. It was created by Dan Harmon and stars Joel McHale and Gillian Jacobs.
Fingers crossed this second start date for the fourth season wont be pulled as it was from its original October start date. Its slot on Thursdays will be replacing 30 Rock, which, by then, will have ended its final series. Sob. The first episode will air on February 7th, the news of which comes amid news about plenty of other new and returning comedies. As HitFix says 1600 Penn will be premiering in january- a new comedy set in the White House and starring Bill Pullman, Jenna Elfman and Josh Gad. Plus, 'Up All Night' which is currently airing will be cut midseason and returning having been revamped and 'redveloped as a multi-camera comedy'. Time will tell if those changes will help it succeed.
The Office spinoff 'The Farm' has this week been cancelled, but The X-Factor, Arrow and Homelands have all been set for renewal.
