‘Community’ Season 5 Announced

Community Season 4 Episode 11 Basic Human Anatomy (6)

Maybe this isn’t the darkest timeline after all?

AsTV Line reported late Friday evening, Community has been renewed for a fifth season. There’s no official word on season five’s episode count just yet, but TV Line notes that the series could receive a 13-episode pick up just as it did in season four. Community and Parks and Recreation are the only two NBC comedies to make it through to the 2013-2014 season so far; the fate of the long-delayed Anne Heche vehicle Save Me has yet to be revealed.

Community faced a series of challenges this season due to the departure of its creator Dan Harmon, the abrupt exit of Chevy Chase and a delayed premiere. However, the series has remained a cult favorite with a passionate fanbase, and a fifth season renewal puts it closer to the coveted 100-episode syndication sweet spot.

What do you think Human Beings? Are you glad the study group will be back for at least one more semester?

NBC will announce their full 2013-2014 lineup Monday, May 13th during their annual upfront presentation.
