Despite rumours that spread like wildfire on the Internet this evening, NBC’s ‘Community’ has not been canceled.
The comedy show, which stars Joel McHale, was not on the NBC’s midseason renewal plans, but The Hollywood Reporter said that the show was not cancelled.
After ‘Community’ enthusiasts started to panic thinking the show was canceled, Brain Stelter, a New York Times reporter that covers television and digital media tweeted the following:
“Community is definitely NOT cancelled, NYT’s Bill Carter says, two cubicles over. NBC says it’ll be off the air for only a brief time.”
While the show is on NBC’s prime Thursday night slot, it’s no secret it’s struggling.
According to MSNBC.com the show’s most recent airing attracted 3.5 million viewers, which is just short of its season low.
And for those who care to know, ‘Prime Suspect’ was not cancelled either.
