Yahoo Screen saved Community, but it seems Community couldn’t save Yahoo Screen. Yahoo has confirmed it’s shutting down the streaming video platform, which launched two years ago to house both original and syndicated programming. The content that already exists will be folded into other sections (sorry, “digital magazines”) at Yahoo. More about the end of Yahoo Screen, and what this might mean for Community, after the jump.

Back in June, we reported that the former NBC comedy series Community could end up getting another season at Yahoo after it was saved from cancellation and turned into a web series. However, it appears that possibility just went out the window.
Series star Joel McHale recently said in an interview that the profile of the cast members has grown significantly since the series premiered six years ago, and Yahoo simply can’t afford to pay the cast what they should be earning anymore. Find out more about why we’re seeing Community canceled again after the jump! Read More »

Six seasons and… another season? Community served up its Season 6 finale this week, but a new report indicates Yahoo is already in discussions about a possible Season 7. Find out what may or may not be happening with Community Season 7 after the jump. Read More »
Update: Yahoo has released the first Community season 6 clip, we’ve added that after the jump.
Greendale Community College is opening its doors once again, and you can see the Community S6 trailer via the show’s new home… at Yahoo. The former NBC sitcom movies to Yahoo for it’s unlikely but possibly always-destined new season, and this first trailer teases not only the pilot, but seemingly the much of the first half of the season.
You’ve got Paget Brewster introduced as “the new Shirley,” and Keith David dropping the best Ghostbusters joke I’ve heard this year. (By the way, Keith David! Reason enough to watch right there.) And of course most of the show’s familiar characters are on hand to lend their own notes to the manic proceedings. Oh, and the whole trailer is an Avengers trailer parody, kind of, as if that image above didn’t clue you in. Watch the Community season 6 trailer below. Read More »

At one point, “six seasons and a movie” sounded like an amusingly preposterous goal. After all, Community that found itself on the brink of cancellation every single year. But now the first half of the prophecy is about to be fulfilled thanks to Yahoo, and Yahoo would really like to remind you of that fact. Especially that last part.
The first Community Season 6 trailer has hit, and while it’s light on new footage it’s heavy on the hype. According to the video, this new season will be “better, stronger, faster.” Watch it after the jump.

#SixSeasonsandaMovie isn’t yet a dead idea. NBC canceled Dan Harmon‘s show Community earlier this year, but it seemed like there was still a chance that it would end up with a new home. Talks with Hulu didn’t go anywhere, but Yahoo wants a show — and now Yahoo has the sixth (and last?) season of Community. The deal was announced today just hours before the cast’s contract collectively expires. More details of the Community Yahoo deal are below. Read More »

[UPDATE: There’s now a conflicting report from TheWrap, which reports that Hulu is still in talks with Sony Pictures TV. Their source does back up TVLine’s claim that another party has also shown in making Season 6.]
When Community first premiered in 2009, it seemed doomed to become a one-and-done. But in defiance of all expectations, it stuck around for five whole seasons, coming tantalizingly close to fulfilling its “#sixseasonsandamovie” destiny. Then NBC pulled the plug for real earlier this year.
There was a brief glimmer of hope that Community could still come back for Season 6 on Hulu, but now, sadly, that light has been extinguished. Hulu has reportedly “abandoned” talks to bring back the show, and with time running low it’s looking less and less likely that the Greendale Gang will be able to stage a comeback. Get the latest updates after the jump.

A great many people watch Community via Hulu — it’s one of the streaming service’s most popular offerings — and now Hulu may be the home for the near-mythical sixth season of the show. When the show was canceled by NBC there was some talk that a place like Hulu could be the home for one last season. And while comments from the show’s creator Dan Harmon made that seem like a pretty distant possibility, conversations are taking place.
At this point that’s all it seems to be — like Hulu buying Sony TV a drink and slyly being all “so, you think you might wanna make a sixth season together?” But that’s better than nothing. Read More »
