They can cancel ‘Community,’ but they can’t kill it.

After talks about a potential online resurrection on Hulu fell through, the cult TV comedy has been rescued by an unlikely source, Yahoo, multiple outlets reported Monday evening. The show’s future remained in limbo after it was cancelled back in April following its fifth season.

One step away from fulfilling the “six seasons and a movie” rally cry (and ensuing social media movement), the show is signed on to appear on Yahoo Screen. Additionally, creator and showrunner Dan Harmon will be returning, as well stars Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Yvette Nicole Brown, Jim Rash, and Ken Jeong.

“I am very pleased that Community will be returning for its predestined sixth season on Yahoo,” Harmon said in a statement. “I look forward to bringing our beloved NBC sitcom to a larger audience by moving it online. I vow to dominate our new competition. Rest easy, Big Bang Theory. Look out, BangBus!”

After struggling through a Harmon-less season four and a truncated fifth season that ultimately marked its expiration date on NBC, “Community” appeared to have reached the end of its lifespan. With critics starting to cool on the show and ratings failing to improve upon its meager traditional metrics, “Community” was no longer a feasible option for network TV.

There is a glimmer of hope that there could be a sixth season of cult comedy series Community. I have learned that Hulu is in talks with Community producer Sony Pictures TV for more original installments of the show, which was cancelled by NBC earlier this month.

Sources stress that conversations are preliminary and is unclear whether they would lead to a deal, but I hear there is will on both sides. That includes Community creator Dan Harmon, who confessed on his blog that he had warmed up to the possibility of continuing the show elsewhere, changing his stance from “eh” when Sony TV called him with the news of the series’ cancellation by NBC to “sure, let’s talk” two days later. Said Harmon, “I’m not going to be the guy that re-cancels cancelled Community.”

With its devoted following by a core group of passionate fans, Community is the type of show digital platforms crave. Complicating the series’ options is the fact that it has a digital syndication deal in place with Hulu, in addition to a cable off-network pact with Comedy Central. That makes Hulu a perfect home for the comedy as it is the kind of streaming service where a show like Community would do best and because it already carries the series’ library via an existing agreement with Sony.

Sidney Kimmel Entertainment will independently finance and co-produce romantic comedy “Sleeping With Other People,” starring Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie.

IM Global is selling international rights to the project at Cannes. Adam Scott, Amanda Peet, Jason Mantzoukas and Natasha Lyonne have also been cast.

“Sleeping” was first unveiled at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival with Sudeikis and Kirsten Dunst in the lead roles and Leslye Headland (“Bachelorette”) directing from her own script. At that point, Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Jessica Elbaum were on board to produce via the Gary Sanchez label.

Dunst later departed the project and was replaced by “Community” and “Mad Men” star Brie.

The web series-turned-pilot hails from Community’s Alison Brie. Teachers revolves around six elementary school teachers who are trying to mold the minds and lives of America’s youth but they don’t really seem to have their own lives together at all. From making their class help them stalk exes online to altering grades, the teachers are changing the world one student at a time. TV Land will film Teachers as a single-camera comedy, marking its second in the works at the network behind upcoming series Jennifer Falls.

Brie is attached to executive produce, and stars Caitlin Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, Katie O’Brien and Katie Thomas have all signed on to reprise their roles from the web series.
