NBC shows confidence in ‘Community,’ ‘absolutely’ hopeful that a fifth season can happen

By Daniel S Levine,

Community fans have reason to be skeptical when NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt says that he has confidence that the show will get a fifth season. After all, the second half of season three was delayed, then the show was on the brink of not getting renewed. Then when it finally got picked up for a new season, creator Dan Harmon left and was replaced by new showrunners David Guarascio and Moses Port. When season four was supposed to debut in October, it was pushed back and now it won’t start until next month.

At the TV Critics Association press tour over the weekend, Greenblatt was asked if he sees the cult show continuing to season five. “Yes, absolutely,” he said, reports The Hollywood Reporter. “I'm always hopeful for a show to continue. We co-own it and I'd love nothing more than to see it continue.”

As for what fans can expect in season four, Greenblatt said that there will be no major changes. “I think you’ll see relatively the same show that you did before, maybe with a little bit more heart built into it. But we didn’t fundamentally change it,” he said, notes Deadline.

He did say, though, that, “There is a little bit more heart built in to it, but we didn't fundamentally change it.”

Chevy Chase has also left the show, but he is in most of season four. The series also stars Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs and Alison Brie.

Community’s fourth season will finally premiere on Feb. 7, taking 30 Rock’s slot at 8 p.m.
