It's been a week filled with renewals and cancellations across the TV landscape, and now Deadline has just broken even more news by reporting that NBC is picking up Parks and Recreation and Up All Night for next season. These two shows are apparently going to lead the charge for the network's future because Community is always in danger of cancellation, 30 Rock seems to be ending next season, and The Office is getting on in years.
This extension will bring Parks and Recreation into its fifth season and Up All Night into its second one. There is no word on it yet, but these seasons will presumably be full orders, as opposed to the 13-14 episodes that 30 Rock got extended. What do you think? Does NBC's comedy future look bright, or are we looking at another drought like in the years following the end of Friends, Frasier, and Seinfeld.
