More from the NBC exec session of the current TCA Winter Press Tour.
Per NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt, comedy "Community", which was conspicuously missing from the Peacock's midseason schedule, has definitely not been canceled.
“When I announced our midseason changes last fall and took Community off the schedule, I failed to explicitly say that it would be back,” he explained. “I want to expel any notion that it is just disappearing off the schedule.”
But, when exactly will it return? Greenblatt wouldn't confirm a specific date at this point.
“Community was moved to 8 o’clock a couple of years ago, and that’s an incredibly competitive time slot now on Thursday. I’m really curious to see what something else will do there. We have a really tight schedule with comedies, [that's why it's] really going to be a matter of looking at what happens with the six comedies we’ve got at midseason.”
Greenblatt was, however, more specific about another NBC show, the very successful singing competition "The Voice", toplined by Christina Aguilera.
The second season will be kicking of right after the SuperBowl, on February 5, and will then run for 15 weeks.
