TV series ‘Community’ cancelled
MANILA, Philippines – The TV series "Community," which ran for 5 seasons, will no longer air a sixth season after NBC announced Friday, May 9, that they have cancelled the show.
The show created by Dan Harmon chronicles the lives of a group of students and faculty members from a community college in the fictional locale of Greendale, Colorado. The show made use of meta-humor and pop culture references with parody from film and television.
A story from avclub.com said that a movie version of the series will likely not push through as well.
The show has received a huge cult, with critics even claiming that it was one of the best shows of 2010 and 2011. It has also gotten nominations from People’s Choice Awards, and Critic’s Choice Television Awards.
While the creator and its cast said they were saddened by the cancellation, they thanked their many viewers, adding they were also grateful for the time they spent together as a team.
Twitter isn't big enough to hold my condolences and more importantly my gratitude to the best fans, cast and crew in TV history. Excelsior.— Dan Harmon (@danharmon) May 9, 2014
