NBC Cancels ‘Community’
Those dreams of six seasons and a movie have been dashed, as Deadline reports NBC has canceled Community.
While it doesn’t come as a surprise, that doesn’t make the news any easier for fans of the comedy, who weathered the firing of creator Dan Harmon and a rocky Season 4, only to be rewarded by his return and a greatly improved fifth — and now final — season. Alas, while its ratings improved, the final 13 episodes averaged just 3.7 million viewers (which, as Deadline notes, still outperforms the returning Parks and Recreation).
Entertainment Weekly points out, however, that his may not be the end of the Greendale gang: Sony Pictures TV is searching for a new home for Community on cable or a streaming service.
