NBC Close to Season Five Renewal for COMMUNITY; Cancels GO ON

by     Posted 1 year, 174 days ago

While the fate of low-rated NBC sitcom Community seemed all but certain just a few weeks ago, it appears that the network is having a change of heart.  Fresh off an uptick in ratings for last night’s season four finale, the folks over at Vulture report that NBC is very close to renewing Community for a fifth season.  It’s unknown how many episodes the show would return for, but a shortened order seems likely.  That being said, the series only needs 16 more episodes to get to 100, which is the golden number for a lucrative syndication deal.

On the flipside, the network has decided to cancel the Matthew Perry comedy Go On.  The show premiered last fall to solid ratings and was one of the best performing new shows of the season, but when its lead-in The Voice took a midseason break, Go On’s numbers plummeted.  The show was actually pretty solid and boasted a really funny ensemble cast, but rumors have been swirling lately about a comedy overhaul at NBC so it sounds like Community and Parks and Recreation might be the only ones to make it out alive.  For more on NBC’s renewals and pilot pickups, click here.
