School's Not Out: NBC Renews Community

Get More: Renewals

Community Renewed Six seasons and a movie? Not so far-fetched after all!

NBC has renewed death-defying cult fave Community for a fifth season, TVLine has confirmed. 

RELATED | NBC Cleans House, Cancels 5 Shows

No exact word on episode count, but 13 is the number being bandied about (that would put it within striking distance of syndication-friendly 100.)

TVLine’s Renewal Scorecard has been updated.

  • I’m sure that season 5 will once again be nothing but a bunch of random & stupid poop/doody jokes from cast and crew. Thank you NBC for proving that monkeys run your network

    • Poop/doody jokes? Clearly you’ve never watched Community. Perhaps you’re thinking of those Chuck Lorre shows?

    • What show are you watching? They don’t really do poop jokes.

  • If this show does not get a sixth season now, I think the Internet will explode.

    • Haha this is exactly what I was thinking! To get this close but not make it would torture all of us Human Beings.

  • Tell me is that okay that i don’t like Community? I know a lot of people who love it. I like the referenses, but i dislike the characters.
    On the other hand The Office US is not standart comedy either, but i absolutely in love with it.

    • It’s absolutely fine! Everyone has different tastes, and looks for different types of humour.I’ve never been a fan of The Office (either of them), but I get why people love it, because it’s very good at what it does. Ditto 30 Rock. It’s just not for me (much the same, I get the jokes but really don’t like any of the characters).

      Community, I’ve always felt, is made for me and people like me. I empathise with most of the characters regularly, and the jokes are the geeky, slightly unhinged kind that really work for me. But it’s very definitely not for everyone. And that’s okay.

  • This is fantastic news. Season five!! Two years ago, I would’ve thought this was an impossibility! I’ve been watching this series since I was 14, and now the Greendale Seven — er, Six — will follow me to university! Thank you, NBC. I may just be able to overlook you canceling The New Normal.

  • The only good thing about Go On being canceled is that it helped save Community!!! YAY! #sixseasonsandamovie

  • Best news of the day.
    As inconsistent as this season has been as a whole, it was still full of many great moments. With the show not really about community college at all, there is no dearth of direction where season 5 can go.

  • Yay! Although quality has gone down on Community this season, it still has a lot of potential. Looking forward to the new season. And now for the obligatory hashtag…#sixseasonsandamovie

  • Im very happy about this :D but i hope they take the time to really really make this season great. Writers/showrunner(s)…re-watch the other seasons that Dan did and really capture the humor and heart of the show. Turn around all these “this season sucked, sucks Dan left…” opinions and make them fall in love with Community again.

  • I almost want to cry I’m so happy… this almost makes up for cancelling Go On… Almost…

  • Un-be-DEAN-able! I hope its smoother next year & so happy we get more! I just wish NBC could/would rock comedy like they did when I was growing up. Cheers, Cosby, Golden Girls, Seinfeld, Frasier, Night Court, Family Ties, etc. I will forever be loyal to NBC, but give me reasons to, guys!

    E Pluribus Anus!

  • I don’t know. Season 4 wasn’t good at all so I hope they listen to feedback and improve. But my first reaction was oh no I don’t want to watch my once favorite show get worse. Keeping things crossed.

  • YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS

    This makes up for the southland cancellation.

    AWESOME

  • I have zero expectations that Community S5 will be anywhere near as good as S1-3 were, but the fact that I love all these actors so much makes me glad I’ll still get to see them all in one place instead of scattered around on a bunch of different shows. Even if the writing is terrible now and the soul of the show left when Dan Harmon did, I love watching them work together.

  • REALLY? OMG. I am SO happy right now, so, SO happy. I have never been more happy to be wrong about a show in my life.

  • I am happy Community got picked up; but I would have been okay if it had ended as it did. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. I wonder if they are holding it until January.

  • Yay for Community! I don’t enjoy it near as much as I used to but it’s still a fun show.

    Comment by Fan – May 11, 2013 10:49 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I’m happy that the show got another chance (even though I feel that the renewal was partly motivated by NBC feeling like they had to renew something and at least they can give Community enough episodes to get syndicated, henceforth more money for the network, rather than faith in the show) but I agree with the commenters who said that this season was weak. There were some great moments – when Jeff was telling his Dad that he (Jeff) was broken I cried because that hit home for me – but it was inconsistent and I don’t want the show to become a parody of itself. I also agree that the plan was to have Jeff become a teacher at Greendale because why else would they mention his degree in education.

  • Old Community(Seasons 1-3) was a fantastic show. This season was ok. There was some really bad, but I really thought a couple of episodes did Old Community proud. I thought the puppet episode was great, personally. I’m happy it’s renewed, maybe it’ll be smoother next season, now that they’ve had time to deal with all the transition. I do think that Go On being cancelled is an absolute travesty, however. Best new comedy NBC had in ages.

  • They HAVE to bring Dan Harmon back.
    They ruined Season 4, I can’t take it anymore.
    I need my #SixSeasonsAndAMovie

  • For all those people wishing Dan Harmon was back – He is!!! Hopefully Community will be like the first three seasons with him back. The fourth was a little under standard but it still was okaaaaaay.
