'Community' Season 5 to 2014, Plus NBC Fall Schedule Announcement!Kevin Fitzpatrick |
We'd be hard pressed to say who had the most brutal of cancellations and fruitful pickups between the five major networks this weekend, but few would offer that NBC had any undeserved ends. Even so, the peacock has become the first among the five to set its major schedule, moving 'Revolution' and 'Parenthood' to new nights, scheduling Jonathan Rhys-Meyers 'Dracula' for fall and moving 'Community' and more to midseason! Get the lowdown on NBC's new lineup inside!
It remains to be seen if NBC's 2013-14 will prove as disastrous as the past year, but the new fall lineup definitely has some changes in store. Not only will 'Revolution' move to Wednesdays while 'Parenthood' jumps to Thursdays, but 'Parks and Recreation' will also take the Thursday 8:00 PM. slot to introduce new series' Welcome to the Family,' Sean Hayes’ 'Sean Saves the World' and 'The Michael J. Fox Show.'
Additionally, 'Community' will likely forgo any "October 19th" shenanigans by moving directly to midseason, along with J.J. Abrams' 'Believe,' 'About a Boy,' pirate drama 'Crossbones' and 'Chicago Fire' spin-off 'Chicago PD.' Check out NBC's fall lineup for yourself below:
