I don’t know about you, but I’ve been so very curious lately about what TV will look like come September. Rumors abound that the beloved Parks and Recreation will be no more and 30 Rock is on its way out, as well, so naturally, I’ve taken to the web for some investigatory searches. Here’s the scoop:
Parks & Rec has been renewed for a full season (!!!!) along with our cherished Happy Endings. 🙂
30 Rock has been renewed for a 13 episode final season – okay by me, really, because, even though I do love this show dearly and watch faithfully every week, I think it’s time to wrap it up. I’m glad it’s going to end before I’m completely exhausted of it.
The Office has at least one more season in store and John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer and Ed Helms are all still on board. My sincerest hope is that the writers step it up and reclaim that satirical, ironic hilarity that made this show such a monumental hit, instead of what they’ve done all season long, which is make every character as asinine and pathetic as possible.
Community has been promised at least 13 more episodes (and possibly more) with the option for a 5th season. Thank god, too, because even though it took a loooong time for me to warm up to these ridiculous characters, Community has really hit its stride this season. Here’s hoping John Goodman makes a reappearance, as well.
NBC has also renewed Up All Night, for those of you who watch. I’ve already given up on it. I tried but I couldn’t get into it.
Parenthood will continue for at least 15 more episodes. Again, it took more than a full season for me to feel invested in any of these characters but I have long since been hooked. Season 3 displayed some of the best writing I’ve ever seen on television and I am eagerly looking forward to what’s next for the Braverman clan.
Don’t Trust The B—- In Apt. 23 has been renewed and, though still in its infancy, it does show promise. Both Grey’s Anatomy and Modern Family have also been renewed for another full season and, while I do DVR both of these shows, I find it increasingly hard to watch every week. They have peaked and are now merely tiresome and annoying. Here’s hoping they’ll make this upcoming season their last.
