It looks like 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, and Community will be returning to NBC’s schedule next year, but there is a catch to their renewal.
TV Line reports that 30 Rock will be renewed for a seventh season, which will be its final season.
Despite its renewal, it will not be back for a full season. Instead, the show starring Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin will return for an order of 13 or 14 episodes.
Baldwin has won two Emmys for his portrayal of Jack Donaghy on the show, and has recently been talking about the show ending, according to the Seattle PI.
Baldwin has even tweeted about leaving NBC, saying, “I think I'm leaving NBC just in time.”
Fey, who is also the show’s creator, has also been public about the show ending. Last month, she appeared on The View, and said, “The end of the show is visible on the horizon…We can’t do this for like 35 years.”
In addition to Baldwin winning two Emmys for his portrayal of Donaghy, Fey won an Emmy for her role as Liz Lemon. The show has won Best Comedy Series three times.
According to Deadline, Parks and Recreation and Community are also likely to be renewed. Like 30 Rock, they will likely be receiving short orders, saving NBC money and allowing them to pick up more new shows for the upcoming season.
