Community Cancelled at NBC

Community Season 6Six seasons and a movie? More like five seasons and a cancellation: NBC has axed Community, TVLine has learned.

There’s no official word from the Peacock but sources confirm that the show’s April 17 Season 5 finale will end up being its series finale — unless, of course, Sony finds a new home for the Greendale gang.

That Community managed to air five full seasons was something of a victory in itself. After three low-rated (albeit critically lauded) seasons, NBC replaced creator Dan Harmon as showrunner, then brought him back for Season 5. At the end of Season 4, original cast member Chevy Chase exited amid controversy. Donald Glover, too, jumped ship after Episode 5 of Season 5.

TVLine’s handy Renewal Scorecard has been updated with the news.

    Netflix anyone?

  2. sarah says:

    Seriously! They could not have given it one more shortened season!?!? I need the numbers of this season! I am sure it did better than some other ones that have been renewed! I will not name show names so that fans of those show will not get mad!

  3. Ashley says:

    NOOOOOOO!!!!!!! I will subscribe to any service or channel – Netflix, Hulu, HBO, whatever – for life if they revive “Community” for a sixth season!

  4. mleunig22 says:

    I’m devastated :(

  5. Tom Charles says:


  6. Aw man! Thanks for ruining my weekend. :-)

  7. marlysa14 says:

    The only show I didn’t want tp see cancelled and NBC just britta’d it. I’m gonna wait for Netflix/Hulu/Kickstarter to do domething about it and stay in my denial state. #sixseasonsandamovie

  8. Angela says:

    Aw, crap! That sucks. I was hoping for at least one more season.
    Five years is a good run, at least. But still…not happy about this news at ALL. Ergh.

  9. This is the heartbreak of heartbreaks. If any online service like Hulu, Netflix, or Amazon picked Community up, I would be a customer of theirs for life.

  10. Damn, I thought NBC might keep this one for some consistency in its Thursday night comedy block (that now only has Parks and Rec returning). Not unexpected, but disappointing.

  11. Diana says:

    =( =( =( One of my husband & mine favorite shows.

  12. Cub says:

    I’m legit crying

  13. Tom Is Ugly says:

    Best day ever! Community was horrible and if it had been at any other network, it would’ve been cancelled after its first season.

    • Agents of S.U.X.O.R. says:

      STFU Glee fan. Community is just way over your head. Stick to sitcoms with laughtracks.

    • Et al. says:

      You’re a pathetic troll.

    • Angela says:

      You know, it’s fine if you don’t care for the show, but saying “best day ever!” in a thread where fans are upset about the cancellation is incredibly immature and lame. Grow up.

  14. Amber says:

    I tried so hard to get into this show but couldn’t. But I’m sad for all the fans who did and the actors and crew out of a job.

  15. Erin says:

    NOOO! Not fair!

  16. david says:

    I didn’t watch Community. I tried to get into it during the first season but I just couldn’t for whatever reason. But the fact it went as long as it did is a victory. I’m sorry for the fans that lost their show. I’m surprised that they aren’t giving it another season though. They renewed Parks and Rec and their ratings weren’t that much better. I really miss The Office though.

  17. LuLu says:

    NO, I so did not need this news today.

  18. dman6015 says:

    You b******s!

  19. Et al. says:

    Leonard hates this post.

  20. webly3 says:

    I’m so upset. If Parenthood goes as well, this will turn my bad day into my worst day of the year.

  21. Paula says:

    I REALLY HATE NBC!!!!!!!!!!!!! How could they do this?

  22. benny says:

    Were now officially in the Darkest Timeline :(

  23. Christy says:

    Come on cable networks!! TBS?? It can go next to Cougar Town!
    And WHAT are you going to replace it with NBC?? Because every comedy you’ve premiered in the last 3 years has been a miserable failure!!

  24. Brian says:

    #darkesttimeline is the most trending tweet on Twitter currently… Maybe Netflix or Hulu will take note of this and do the right thing…

  25. yurie says:

    For the love of god… why are all the shows that I’ve been watching getting cancelled left and right.

  26. Dan says:

    This is truly the Darkest Timeline

  27. Taryn Powers says:


  28. melinae says:

    Damn you NBC. I hate you right now. We WILL HAVE #sixseasonsandamovie, The fans we’ll find a way.

  29. cesar says:

    I don’t like this TIMELINE!!!!

  30. Kyle says:

    Noooo!! This is just unacceptable NBC.

  31. Larry says:

    Man the reactions here are hilarious, its just a TV show.

    • kidris90 says:

      It’s a Tv show that many people were VERY passionate about. On twitter, there are even dozens of people who suffer from depression who considered killing themselves before they discovered Community, which was a small ray of sunshine in their lives. You sound very ignorant.

  32. Pia says:

    Has the finale aired yet? I don’t remember seeing it on any of the calendars.

  33. Magali says:

    Terrible news. The darkest timeline indeed. Netflix: please unbreak my heart!

  34. Tenney says:

    My heart just broke a little bit. Say it aint’t so :(

  35. M.J says:

    I am soooo sad right now. We need at least SIX SEASONS AND A MOVIE!!!!! Community is the best!!

  36. Amanda says:

    Sigh. This is the darkest timeline.

  37. David Goldman says:

    NO! This is not happening. I’m dreaming right? who wants to start a revolt of some kind? I’m not giving up until we get #sixseasonsandamovie

  39. Aleksa says:

    My emotions! MY EMOTIONS!!

  40. Jesse says:

    Once my favorite comedy, season 4 sucked, then Harmon made season 5 even worse. Good riddance.

  41. Ray says:

    That really sucks. Community had such a creative renaissance this year…possibly the best season to date (minus the last couple of episodes).

  42. Joey Padron says:

    So sad about this. Dumb of NBC canceling it. Hope show finds another home for season 6.

  43. Zoe says:

    I smell a Cougar Town scenario…

  44. Faye says:

    I loved every character. Very sad to see it go.

  45. josh says:

    Troy was my favorite character and the best compliment i can give this show was I didn’t even notice he was missing in the final 8 episodes of season 5. people saying the show trended downward, yes 4 was bad, 4 wasn’t Dan Harmon… the entire 5th season was exactly like the 1st 3 seasons and held up to multiple viewings. this is a gigantic disappointment.. hopefully hulu steps up or netflix bides their time until the hulu contract is up… anyone know what date that ends?

  46. Et al. says:

    NBC truly is the worst broadcast network now. They used to have quality if poor ratings. Now it’s just poor ratings and garbage (except for parks and Hannibal).

  47. Sarah says:

    That’s super retarded. This page says: Community “There’s no official word from the Peacock but sources confirm that the show’s April 17 Season 5 finale will end up being its series finale”, I click through to your “Source” and on page 4 (NBC) find “Community:… …Officially cancelled” – so I click on the “Officially cancelled” link… and it links me back to this page “There’s no official word…”

    You guys are hacks. I’m going to find some news from a reliable source.

    • Sarah says:

      Sorry, not “Source” but “Renewal Scorecard”.

      Either way, it links back to you contradicting yourself. Poor show.

  48. littlescarfgirl says:

    I just feel like they’re going to replace it with a lousy comedy that will get cancelled after one season. Why not just stick with Community, which has a very devoted fanbase and would love a 6th season to wrap things up?
