Here is the official word from Comedy Central.
Greendale Community College's most famous study group will have a new member beginning in 2013 (and it's not Beetlejuice) as Comedy Central has reached a multi-year deal with Sony Picture Television to license the critically-acclaimed comedy series Community Season 3, it was announced today by David Bernath, Executive Vice President, Program Strategy & Multiplatform Programming/Dean of Students for Comedy Cenral and [Sony Pictures Television].
The all-comedy channel will launch the series with three seasons beginning in the fall of 2013.
"Within the chaos of the current media landscape we are fortunate that we live in a timeline where Community comes to Comedy Central," said David Bernath. "Our staff is celebrating with a game of paintball in the offices today."
"Community is a perfect fit for the Comedy Central audience," added John Weiser, president, US distribution for Sony Pictures Television.
