The dream of six seasons and a movie is over for "Community" fans.
NBC canceled the low-rated cult favorite comedy after five seasons. The network also pulled the plug on post-apocalyptic drama "Revolution," which once looked like a promising hit for NBC but has steadily declined in the ratings over its two seasons.
That "Community" even made it to a fifth season was a miracle. The quirky comedy struggled to find viewers for its entire existence, and things looked really bleak after NBC replaced creator Dan Harmon as showrunner after season 3. He ended up coming back, but he wasn't able to stop the bleeding. As for "Revolution," though it debuted good numbers, that was mostly due to airing after "The Voice." Once it moved to another night, "Revolution's" ratings tumbled.
NBC is moving forward with new shows. The Peacock picked up "Constantine," an adaptation of the DC Comics franchise, as well as "Mysteries of Laura," a police drama starring Debra Messing.
The network also renewed two bubble shows, "Hannibal" and "About a Boy."
