NBC Officially Cancels UNDERCOVERS But Orders Two More Episodes of COMMUNITY

     November 4, 2010

Though NBC ordered four more scripts for their romantic action comedy series Undercovers, it looks like it was all for naught. Deadline reports the network has canceled J.J. Abrams hour-long series optioning not to pick up anymore episodes beyond its initial 13 episode order. Apparently the series will stay on for two more weeks and air its last completed episode on December 1st. It’s unclear what will happen with the episodes currently in production (episode 12 is currently filming). This is only the second show NBC axed along with the pitiful legal drama Outlaw while all the other series got full season orders.

On the lighter side, Deadline also reported that Community got an additional order for two more episodes, bringing their second season order to 24 episodes. If we live in a world where a mediocre action comedy gets the can while a stellar comedy series like Community continues to thrive, well then something must be going right. Anyone disappointed about Undercovers cancellation or excited about more Commnunity?
