There's no way it doesn't get renewed. No way. Not after all response to its postponement.

I've read rumblings that although renewal for it is more than likely, it may receive a shortened season order along with 30 Rock and Parks & Rec.

However I'm uncomfortable with the four season notion if they're going to do in the fourth season what they're doing in this season.
yeah, exactly. we've already had one or two episodes that mostly took place off-campus already (i can think of the storyline with pierce's mom in the lava lamp and the episodes in troy, abed, and annie's apartment) but not whole seasons. plus it'd mean new sets, and i can't imagine they'd let them build all these new sets, or even just one general hang-out place like their own central perk, just for one season.

i've heard rumours about the abbreviated season too, and i hope it's not true. granted i'd rather get a shortened season than no season, but it seems silly to stop so short of the number of episodes they'd need for syndication. i heard the rumoured amount was ~13, and that would bring it about eight short. it seems pointless for sony to fund a new season but stop so short of being able to get some money back. at least for 30 rock and p&r, they've been around more seasons so i'm sure they're both already at the required number of episodes.

Looks like a 13-episode order for all.

Bomac this news is as of yet unconfirmed as far as i can tell and the article sourcing sounds sketchy. Not saying it won't happen but I'm wary.

30 Rock renewed for a final season

That the news about 30 Rock came out while Community and Parks are still unannounced tells me that no decision has actually been made yet, otherwise...they'd just announce it already. I looked up OpposingViews, and it's just an open submission web site.

Yeah, I know that. Was just passing along a link.

I hope it's wrong, though!

Obviously, negotiations will be down to the wire. Sony will want to produce as many episodes as it can for syndication purposes and NBC will want to lower their fees as much as possible (especially if they end up producing more than 13 new episodes). I wouldn't be shocked if they ran through the weekend, but NBC is probably going to want to have everything tied down by Friday evening so they can sort out the schedule.

I'm sure we'll get another season, so the only question is how many episodes it will be. Only way we get more is if somebody else picked it up for a fifth season which I find rather unlikely.

Alan Sepinwall (fat dude who did one of the Community panels, hit fix), says on twitter he trusts his source... which is saying 13 episodes.

What a fucking crock of shit. I hope NBC loses more viewers with whatever garbage they're going to replace the Thursday night block with.

Yeah, that's pretty much the end-of-the-line. Only way it gets more episodes is if it manages to do a lot better than NBC's new comedies so the network gives it a back order for more episodes. That's highly unlikely given that the new shows will surely premiere out of the gate to much higher numbers than Community will have and it wouldn't be shocking if they leveled off at the same numbers or better.

It seems like this just punts the syndication aspect a few months down the line. No real s5 expectation, but if the ratings are even just mediocre come October I would not be surprised to see a few more eps picked up and basically paid for entirely by Sony.

That will put them in an awkward position though won't it? Like they'll write and shoot 13 episodes thinking that's it, have a finale, then all of a sudden they get more?
