Yahoo Sets March Premiere for Season Six of ‘Community’

By January 13, 2015

For all you Greendale Human Beings who have been waiting to hear when “Community” would finally return at their new online home on Yahoo, we finally have a premiere date for the sixth season.

Yahoo announced today, with the cast of the formerly NBC comedy series, that the 13-episode sixth season of the show will premiere with two new episodes on Tuesday, March 17th. Then, a new episode will arrive every Tuesday thereafter.

For those who want to hear the good news from our favorite community college students, here you go:

Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Jim Rash, Ken Jeong are all returning for the show’s sixth season, though as we learned last fall, Yvette Nicole Brown won’t be back as Shirley, joining other departed original cast members like Donald Glover, who has his own show on FX coming this year, and Chevy Chase — who just didn’t get along with show creator Dan Harmon — and left the show while it was still at NBC.

New cast members this season include Paget Brewster as Francesca “Frankie” Dart, a consultant hired to improve Greendale, and also Keith David as Elroy Patashnik, a retired scientist. This season will also see an episode directed by Oscar winning writers Nat Faxon & Jim Rash, who made their feature film directorial debut with the indie darling The Way, Way Back.

We’re not sure how long this revived version of “Community” will last, especially with three original cast members now missing from the show, but Yahoo is going to keep it alive for now, and for the fans who have been loyal to it for so long. At least with this sixth season, we’re one step closer to completing #SixSeasonsAndAMovie.

Are you excited for the sixth season of “Community” on Yahoo?
