Six Seasons and a Movie isn’t so far off after all.

Dan Harmon’s cult comedy is back from the cancellation grave, thanks to media giant and search engine Yahoo. 13 brand new episodes will debut on Yahoo Screen this fall, in an attempt for the site to break into original programming. Yahoo has streamed scripted content before, most notably with the Ben Stiller-produced Bachelor parody, Burning Love.

The exciting news comes on the heels of a deal falling through between Sony Pictures Television—which owns Community—and the streaming site Hulu. Community, however, has always been he little show that could, so the fact that it was picked up quickly after being dropped by NBC comes as no surprise.

The show will return with Dan Harmon as showrunner and the full cast from season 5. Whether this will include Donald Glover’s recently departed Troy remains to be seen. Fans of the show have long been familiar the mantra “Six Seasons and a Movie”—something which Abed shouted in the season 2 episode “Paradigms of Human Memory.” It’s unclear if Yahoo has plans to adapt a film version of the show, but a sixth season seems like the logical next step to fulfilling the prophecy.
