NBC Renews Community

Continuing a roller-coaster year that saw Community dropped from the midseason schedule only to return in mid-March to season-high ratings, NBC announced today it’s bringing the cult comedy back for another term.

The Live Feed reports the series has been renewed for a 13-episode fourth season. As expected, 30 Rock received a similarly shortened final season, however, there’s still no official word on fellow Thursday-night comedies Parks and Recreation and The Office.

“Dear Community fans, You are the best people in the world,” star Joel McHale wrote on Twitter. “We’re renewed for 13 eps. Couldn’t have done it without you.”

With the show’s immediate future secure, the big question is whether co-star Chevy Chase, whose feud with creator Dan Harmon erupted into public view — or, rather, hearing — in March, will return next season.

Community joins the previously renewed 30 Rock, Grimm, Law & Order: SVU, Parenthood and Smash.

    if they’re smart they’ll drop Chase. I know more people that refuse to even watch this show because he’s on it, than I know people who actually watch the show. (To be fair, I only know one person who still watches NBC (at all) and he thinks Jon Stewart is a real journalist and that the Justice League ripped off his name, so don’t don’t rush to claim him as typical for the target demo.)

    Pretty happy about this! Community has had its ups and downs. but is a very entertaining show!

    Unfortunately, Jeff graduating makes it pretty obvious Community is over. However; I’m hopeful for a spinoff. All the career paths the characters have chosen relate to crime, Annie is in forensics, Jeff is a lawyer, Britta can be a criminal psychologist. Troy could marry Annie, Abed could be a sketch artist, Shirley could have a sandwich shop in the building they all work in, and they would all be one family again… at least I can dream.
