    Six seasons and a movie doesn’t seem like such a wild fantasy anymore.

    It will get a final season but i don’t think its going to be what some expect its possible it could be 6-8 episodes and maybe its a late summer run.

  • Buck

    I hope Community can get a FULL 6th season. #sixseasonsandamovie

    @reidjr,

    Why NBC will put Community in late summer?doesn’t make any sense.

  • Buck

    @Douglas from Brazil

    You’re right, that doesn’t make any sense. A strange comment from reidjr to be sure.

  • Buck

    Community followed by Parks is a great hour of comedy. It’s a shame they don’t get more viewers.

  • reidjr

    With networks having more and more shows on the summer schedule yes it makes sense.

  • reidjr

    Buck

    Not much of a chance it gets a full season.

  • reidjr

    When people say its strange to for it to be on the summer look at how many shows are planned for this summer it does make sense now will it happen maybe not but to say its strannge not anymore.At one point would having major shows on the summer schedule would be seen as strange but the last few years that has changed networks are going to more of a 12 month schedule.

    @reidjr-“Not much of a chance it gets a full season.”

    I know it’s unlikely, but I’m hoping against hope.

  • Bram

    Reidjr a lot of those shows are acquired Canadian content and more serialized dramas. I don’t think they would waste Community in the summer.

  • Jay

    Gotta love that NBC spin. You’d think that we were in Spin City, until you remember that is an ABC show.

  • TVDude

    Just saying, they could always bring in Community with new episodes next January to fill in a gap until the Super Bowl comes. As NBC learned last time, the SB can serve as a great launchpad upcoming for shows. In the mean time, NBC will have to air something and might as well go with a show that begs for a sixth season more than any other show.
