Yahoo! outbid Hulu for ‘Community’ at the last minute

Posted Jul 17, 2014

Yahoo! has gained the exclusive rights for the sixth season of Community for tens of millions of dollars. NBC cancelled the sitcom earlier this year after its fifth season. The show seemed to start struggling during its third season, but it retained a loyal cult-like fan base. In the fifth season, Chevy Chase and Donald Glover departed from the cast, making it difficult to keep the same charm it had in the first season. Hulu was deep in negotiations for the show in the last few weeks of June.
