Community season 4 delayed

Community fans are going to have to wait indefinitely for the show’s fourth season, as NBC announce premiere delay…

Friday October the 19th was originally the day circled on our calendars for the return of NBC’s Community in the US, but you can put a big fat cross through that, as the network has announced it’s delaying the return of the show until an unspecified future date.

Fans will know that Community already hasn’t had the smoothest of years, with the removal of showrunner and creator Dan Harmon this spring following low viewing figures and months of hostility between Harmon and star Chevy Chase, making this the latest in a list of set-backs for the comedy.

NBC had this to say on the matter:

"Given the success we’ve had for the past four weeks - including winning the first week of the season in adults 18-49 - we’ve decided to continue to concentrate our promotional strength on our new NBC shows that are scheduled Monday through Wednesday and have therefore decided to hold Community and Whitney from their previously announced premieres of Oct. 19 […] Without having to launch these comedies on Friday at this time, we can keep our promotion focused on earlier in the week; plus, we will have both comedies in our back pocket if we need to make any schedule changes on those nights. When we have a better idea of viewing patterns in the next few weeks, we will announce new season premieres of Whitney and Community."

As soon as a premiere date is released, we’ll let you know.
