Community fans were thrilled when Yahoo announced it had picked up the canceled cult comedy from the NBC dustpan, brushing the dirt off the low-rated series and setting it up as the centerpiece of its streaming lineup at Yahoo Screen.
Now, the web giant has premiered the first trailer for the upcoming sixth season of Community, partly fulfilling the fandom’s hope that the show will run for "six seasons and a movie."
A glimpse of the leaner, web-only Community will have to wait, though, as the trailer is mostly concerned with telling the story of the show so far. Accordingly, any rough edges in the show’s journey have been sanded down to tell the simple story of a beloved comedy that was unfairly canceled, only to rise like a phoenix from the ashes.
The trailer finishes by vowing to bring the series back as "the world’s first bionic show, better than it was before." A pop-culture reference? In Community? Who would ever have thunk.
