Print this article The futures of popular NBC comedies "Community," "Parks and Recreation" and "30 Rock" have been up in the air, but it looks like the three series are close to being renewed - with a catch. Sources say that while the shows may come back for new seasons, they will likely be shortened to around 13 episodes each, Deadline reports.
Next year will likely be the end for "30 Rock," as stars Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin are only contracted through the upcoming season seven. Additionally, both stars have hinted that the end is near for the Emmy-winning series.
Things are a little more up in the air for "Community" and "Parks and Recreation," which will be entering their fourth and fifth seasons, respectively. In particular, one of "Community's" producers will be leaving the show at the end of the season, and the fan favorite has been on the verge of cancellation for almost its entire run, The Huffington Post reports.
Though the longtime favorites may be returning, it looks like some of the newer shows to hit NBC this year will not. According to Deadline, the Whitney Cummings comedy "Whitney" likely won't be picked up.
