Report: Sony and Hulu in Talks to Revive ‘Community’ for Sixth Season

CommunityFans of the recently cancelledCommunity” might have reason to rejoice, as Sony Pictures Television is in talks with streaming service Hulu to air new episodes, TheWrap reports.

Hulu already has the digital rights to repeats on the show’s first five seasons. “Community” is also the type of series that does well on streaming sites due to its niche comedy and very strong online fan community — that doesn’t always translate to live viewership metrics still used heavily by networks to measure a show’s success.

A sixth season on Hulu would be a victory for the show’s fans, who spurred the hashtag #SixthSeasonandaMovie before the show got cancelled. As we reported, after the show was cancelled earlier this month, fans looked toward Netflix as a possible platform for its revival.
