'Community' Renewed by NBC for a Fourth Season
NBC has renewed Community for 13 episodes. The renewal itself should come as no surprise, but I confess the episode order does surprise me a little bit. Community needed 17 episodes to get to 88 episodes, generally considered to be the minimum acceptable for Mon-Fri stripped syndication, but perhaps like “88 is the new 100,” “84 has become the new 88.”
Note: unlike the renewal of 30 Rock, this renewal is not being spun as a final season, so it’s possible Community can still get to 88 episodes and beyond.
