However, all three NBC shows will have shortened seasons.
For those who are big fans of NBC’s Thursday night comedy line up, the news is good as the network is close to smoothing out deals for 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation and Community to return next season—but there’s a catch.
In what will be the seventh (and most likely final) season of 30 Rock, the Emmy-winning comedy series has been cut down to an episode count of only 13 or 14 shows. NBC has secured deals with the series’ key writers as well as co-executive producers Jack Burditt, Josh Siegal, and Dylan Morgan. Community and Parks and Recreation are also expected to make a return for next season, also with reductions in episodes. Following a long midseason hiatus, Community returned in March to complete its third season and will enter its fourth next fall with Parks and Rec back for a fifth.
