After losing its home on NBC last year, it was feared by many that cult comedy show Community was dead. But after being saved by Yahoo, the show’s sixth season is all set to air this March.
To announce the screening dates, Yahoo have gathered all of Greendale’s finest for a teaser trailer, which you can view below. In typical Community fashion, it plays with television tropes and pokes fun at the shows move to Yahoo.
With Dan Harmon back after returning for season five, the show reunites series regulars Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Jim Rash and Ken Jeong, as well as some new blood including Paget Brewster (Friends), Martin Mull (Dads) and Lesley Ann Warren (Clue). Former cast regular Yvette Nicole Brown departed the show before the new season began filming, as did Danny Glover, Jonathan Banks and Chevy Chase during season five. »

Attention Human Beings! The most streets ahead sitcom has a return date, according to Deadline. After NBC Britta’d the Internet-beloved sitcom by not renewing it, Yahoo came in at a last second Hail Mary to produce a sixth season.
Tuesday March 17, St. Patrick’s Day, was announced as the premiere date for two episodes at the TCA winter press tour, with a new episode released each Tuesday. While Community fans are excited for the 13 new episodes and Dan Harmon staying on, some of the original cast members did not join back (Yvette Nicole Brown is on the remake of the Odd Couple, Donald Glover is now only Childish Gambino, and Chevy Chase was allegedly a jerk) and Paget Brewster and Keith David are joining.
No word if Yahoo will create MeowMeowBeenz in addition to Yahoo Screen, or if Greendale Community College will offer internships at ABC News.

The tumultuous history of Community has been heavily documented. Following creator Dan Harmon’s exit, the loss of three leading cast members and its brief cancellation, the quirky sitcom has fought back at every turn and emerged the victor. With its future in the balance, Yahoo stepped in to save the meta-comedy and offer it a unique ‘delivery method’ for its sixth season – its streaming service, Yahoo! Screen.
Today, the web giant has announced the premiere date for Community‘s season 6 as March 17th. On that date, the first two episodes will appear followed every Tuesday by a brand new episode. Instead of harnessing the benefits of what the digital format has to offer, the decision has been made to stick to the traditional weekly schedule. An unusual move? Certainly. But, the agonizing weekly wait between episodes was part of the television experience; until Netflix opted for entire seasons to debut at once. »

Community will arrive on Yahoo on the 17th of March for its sixth season (we're still waiting on that movie)...
"Keanu Reeves, Matthew McConaughey, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, dinosaurs, live unicorns, gargoyles and everything". According to Joel McHale in this non-promotional promo video for Community's sixth season, those are the reasons to tune in for the return of Greendale's finest.
Except, it's not quite tuning-in, as the season will arrive on Yahoo Screen's streaming service instead of TV. On the 17th of March 2015. Which is information that the cast and creators of Community neither want or need you to know. Ach, it's probably best if you just watch the video.
Paget Brewster and Keith David join McHale, Gillian Taylor, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Ken Jeong and Jim Rash in Community season six, which bids adieu to another of the original Spanish study group roster, Yvette Nicole Brown.
Yahoo announced today during their Television Critics Association press session that the sixth season of the much-beloved, already-cancelled and obviously resurrected Community would begin streaming on Yahoo Screen March 17. They will start with two episodes and from there on out deliver one episode of the 13 episode season every Tuesday. And yes, I will be reviewing the season here at TwitchFilm.Yahoo picked up Dan Harmon's series last June when it was cancelled by NBC after five "will they or won't they" seasons. Harmon and the remaining original cast* will now refuse to tell you who they are (because you already know) with the cute announcement video below.*Chevy Chase, Donald Glover and Yvette Nicole Brown have all departed. ...

One of the pieces of media I'm most excited about consuming in 2015 is season six of Community. Dan Harmon's brilliant sitcom was cancelled by NBC but miraculously saved at the last second by Yahoo Screen (of all places), where it will debut this year. Now, thanks to info from EW, we know exactly when we'll be able to return to Greendale Community College: March 17th, 2015. The first two episodes will be available on that date, and then a new episode will be released each Tuesday until the 13-episode season is finished.
Some brief tidbits about what we can expect moving forward:
Harmon confirms we won't have to pay to watch the show on Yahoo Screen - it's advertising-supported.Despite being freed from traditional network restrictions, we shouldn't expect the show to change too much. “Three-act stories are what work for me,” Harmon said. There also won't be any profanity or nudity. »

The deal that revived NBC’s canceled “Community” via Yahoo Stream came down to “literally hours,” show creator Dan Harmon told reporters at Tuesday’s Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, citing legalities and contract expirations.
Yahoo stepped in with their own idea for the show at the 11th hour, while Sony was in talks with apparent frontrunner Hulu, he explained.
“It seemed absolutely impossible that something was going to happen,” Harmon said of the time crunch, while the clock was ticking down on talent and writer deals.

Community will make its grand return on March 17th, debuting on its new home, Yahoo! Screen, with two new episodes to kick off its highly anticipated sixth season (still no word on that movie). Yahoo will air 13 new episodes of the beloved cult comedy, with a new episode going live every Tuesday.
To break the news, the show's cast and its creator, Dan Harmon, gathered for a characteristically hyper self-aware promo, in which they teased the show by, well, not teasing the show. "I don't need to tell you who I am, »
The cast and creators of “Community” celebrated their show’s resurrection by Yahoo at the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Pasadena on Tuesday.
The sixth season of the cult favorite comedy will premiere on March 17, with two episodes. New episodes will debut on following Tuesdays.
Original cast members Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Ken Jeong, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie and Jim Rash are all slated to return, to be joined by new cast members Paget Brewster (as a “problem-solver”) and Keith David (as a computer programmer).
Series creator Dan Harmon said the deal with Yahoo came down to “literally hours from our perspective.”
The cast had mourned the show after NBC’s cancellation (“We had cheated death so many times,” said Gillian Jacobs), but Sony execs were still shopping the show to other outlets. Hulu was a contender to pick up the show, says Harmon, “but I don’t know what happened there, »

It was announced Tuesday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour that Community will christen its new Yahoo! Screen home on March 17, with two episodes, and then release a new one each Tuesday thereafter.
Addressing the release plan, series creator Dan Harmon said, “There wasn’t any talk” of following an all-at-once binge-watchable schedule. Rather, “I feel in my old school bones that this is the right way to do it. Maybe old school is the best school? It is for rap.” Plus, as star Joel McHale noted, “The episodes are 70 hours apiece.”
Watch this “promo” for Season 6, then »
The dream of Six Seasons and a Movie is one step closer to fruition, thanks to Yahoo rescuing "Community" from cancellation, for a sixth season to debut sometime this year. Beyond knowing which castmembers won't be a part of the new season — Yvette Nicole Brown left for personal reasons, Jonathan Banks is now on "Better Call Saul," and of course Donald Glover and Chevy Chase have been gone a while, leaving only Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Ken Jeong and Oscar Winner Jim Rash — we don't have a whole lot of detail about the new season, including when it might debut on Yahoo Screen, whether Yahoo will try a Netflix all-at-once approach or release the episodes weekly, etc. Fortunately, we have a "Community" panel this morning at press tour, featuring Dan Harmon, producer Chris McKenna, and stars McHale, Jacobs and Jeong, which will hopefully provide some answers. »

Every year, TV networks trot out a raft of new offerings to compete for viewers’ eyeballs — an increasingly difficult task, given the ever-growing number of options available to the public. But even in what some have dubbed the new Golden Age of Television, there are bound to be some shows that are less deserving of your time than others.
In 2015, the viewing public will be faced with choices that include, not one, but two new shows from “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan; an update on iconic sitcom “The Odd Couple;” and a comedy starring “Saturday Night Live” alum Will Forte »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including The Comeback, The Mentalist, The Librarians, Major Crimes, Benched, New Year’s Eve specials and more!
1 | In The Comeback‘s Emmy-themed finale, why were there only five (versus the standard six) nominees in Valerie’s category? And at what point in finale did you start your weeping? (Our tears began when Valerie checked her phone in the lobby.) Also, wasn’t Val’s gown a definite “10 Best”?
