Sad news, Community fans. After five hilarious seasons, NBC has decided to cancel the Dan Harmon created comedy.
Despite Harmon’s desire for six seasons and a movie, The Hollywood Reporter reports that the shows final season, which concluded back in April, will be its last.
The show has had a rocky past after Harmon left the series because of a tiff with NBC. The show’s fourth season was not well-received by fans, who believed that the show had lost its tenacity and overall appeal since his departure. When Harmon returned to the series for season 5, the show averaged 3 million total viewers, which grew to 3.7 million with DVR.
The show entered syndication on Comedy Central and new episodes began streaming on Hulu the day after their initial broadcast. Star Joel McHale said, while speaking at PaleyFest in March, that “We know there’s going to be a sixth season or else you’ll probably show up with pitchforks and torches.”
Can we just be sad now, please?
