SAN DIEGO - Just because "Community" is going online to Yahoo doesn't mean it's in for a lot of changes.

In fact, creator Dan Harmon says he has "no big, highfalutin plans" for its Web version.

At a Comic-Con panel Thursday, Harmon revealed he doesn't want season six to feel radically different, especially to its loyal fans.

"My philosophy is (to) attempt to make the same show, and let the lack of boundaries make themselves felt ... I don't want to take the wheels off so much that people think, 'Well, this is just some new show.'"

He also admits he wavered about the idea of taking the show to the internet.

He then asked himself, "Does it really matter where we're doing this? I cannot be the one to not do this. Wherever this show is people will find it."

Joel McHale says he "had no doubt it would be back," adding he had no qualms going to the Web, "I was ready to do a regional theatre version of the show."

Gillian Anderson recalls crying in her car when she thought "Community" was cancelled by NBC.

"I didn't want to let go of the show because there are few times in your life when you get to work on something that is good, funny and as groundbreaking and heartwarming as this," she said.

Sony Pictures Television and Yahoo struck a deal to make 13 episodes.

Harmon says writing doesn't begin until the fall so season six shouldn't begin until at least Christmas

The plan is to release one episode per week rather than all at once, like with Netflix's original programming.

"Community" is about a group of misfit students at a Colorado community college.
