Community has gone from NBC to Yahoo after the network cancelled it after season five. Season six aired on Yahoo Screen, and now there is talk from Yahoo that season seven of the series will not happen.
In fact, Yahoo is blaming Community and two other series, Sin City Saints and Other Space, for the failure of their venture into online original programming.
That comes from comments made by Ken Goldman, Yahoo CFO, during a conference call held on Tuesday, according to The Wrap. That outlet shared Goldman’s comments.
“We thought long and hard about it. What we concluded is certain of our original video content, we couldn’t see a way to make money over time. I’m thinking of Community, I’m thinking of Sin City Saints and so forth. So there, where we had spent money and had some assets on our balance sheet, we elected to write those off. That actually helps us going forward and we won’t have the expense to impact us going forward. In thinking through that, we thought of not only what is the cost, but what is the cost to market and create the streams you need to make them successful. So we’re not saying we’re not going to do these at all in the future, but what we’re saying is in three cases, at least, it didn’t work we had hoped it would work, and we decided to move on.”
Saying that they have decided to move on is not putting a good spin on the possibility of a seventh season for Community. While they haven’t said directly that their shows like Community, Sin City Saints, and Other Space have been cancelled, it’s clear that they don’t plan to make any more episodes either.
Fans will see the characters of Community again though. A movie is still in the works, according to Variety. Insiders close to that project told Variety that the film can happen with or without Yahoo.
