NBC cancels ‘Community’, ‘Revolution’; renews ‘Hannibal’, ‘About a Boy’

NBC has begun a slew of announcements concerning its 2014-2015 television season. The post-apocalyptic drama Revolution has been cancelled after two seasons as new dramas Believe and Crisis.

Fans of Hannibal (fannibals, I hear they're called) and About a Boy can breathe a sigh of relief, as those two shows have been renewed.

Unfortunately, new sitcom Growing Up Fisher was axed as was the cult favorite Community after five seasons.

Always on the bubble, Community will not get to fulfill its much-tweeted #sixseasonsandamovie, though the door might still be open for another network to pick the series back up for another season or a movie. After a fourth season that floundered without show runner Dan Harmon (who exited with EP Chris McKenna), Harmon returned for the most recent fifth season. Even with the loss of series regular Donald Glover, the show's ratings had ticked up to a 1.5 rating and 3.7 million total viewers (including DVR).
