(Newser) Community has been saved: Yesterday, the last day the contracts for the stars of the show could legally be renewed, the series was picked up by ... none other than Yahoo. Yes, after NBC canceled the cult favorite, its sixth season will air online, the Wire reports. The 13-episode season will still feature Dan Harmon as showrunner, Vulture reports. The show's dedicated fans have been clamoring for "six seasons and a movie," and industry insiders say there's a chance—though nothing official—a feature film could happen in the future. Yahoo's chief marketing officer says she hopes to "build and extend and prolong" the series beyond the next season.
