LOS ANGELES, June 30 (UPI) -- Community fans are one step closer to their "six season and a movie" dream.

The cult comedy, which stars Joel McHale as the leader of a wacky ensemble of community college students, was canceled by NBC last May. But Community's producers announced Monday that Yahoo Screen had ordered a 13-episode sixth season of the show.

"I am very pleased that Community will be returning for its predestined sixth season on Yahoo," creator and showrunner Dan 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, Bang Bus!"

McHale added: "'The reports of our cancelation have been greatly exaggerated.' -- Mark Twain (The other version of this quote has been wrong for years). #SixSeasonsAndaMovie is real. Thank you Sony. Thank you Yahoo. Thank you Dan Harmon. And thank you to the greatest f%$#ing fans in the history of the human race. It's the internet. We can swear now."

Show producers were reportedly in talk with Hulu about a six-season streaming deal, but negotiations broke down over money.
