“The reports of our cancelation have been greatly exaggerated.” --- Mark Twain (The other version of this quote has been wrong for years). # SixSeasonsAndaMovie is real,” Joel’s statement read. “Thank you Sony. Thank you Yahoo. Thank you Dan Harmon. And thank you to the greatest f%$#ing fans in the history of the human race. It’s the internet. We can swear now.”
