NBC Renews PARKS AND RECREATION for Season Six; Cancels 1600 PENN and WHITNEY

There is great reason to rejoice, folks.  Hot on the heels of NBC ordering four comedy pilots and two drama pilots to series, the network has renewed the most excellent comedy series Parks and Recreation for a sixth season.  Nick Offerman himself confirmed the news on Twitter in true Ron Swanson fashion.  While rumors have swirled that NBC is planning an overhaul of its comedy lineup in addition to losing 30 Rock and The Office, Parks and Rec is consistently a top ratings performer on the network and is something of a critical darling.  The show has only improved since its debut in 2009, and I personally consider it one of the best things on television period.  Less certain are the fates of shows like Community, Go On, and The New Normal, but we’ll hear firm word soon as NBC is slated to unveil its full 2013/2014 lineup on Sunday.

[Update: In addition to Parks and Rec‘s renewal, NBC has cancelled Whitney and freshman comedy 1600 Penn.]

[Update #2: And now NBC has announced that Up All Night and Guys with Kids are also cancelled.]
