NBC Cancels 'Community' & 'Revolution,' Renews 'Hannibal' & 'About a Boy'

NBC has officially renewed Hannibal and About a Boy, Deadline reports.

However, the network did also deliver some sad news. Revolution, the JJ Abrams/Eric Kripke drama, will unfortunately not be getting a third season. Community will also not be returning after five seasons on the air. Community is a fan favorite show, and will certainly cause some blowback. Jamie Chung‘s Believe also did not make the cut.

About a Boy has been averaging a 2.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 8.3 million viewers, so it was no surprise that the show got a second season.

Hannibal has been doing okay in the ratings, and will premiere its third season next year.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of all the pickups and renewals??

  • Lisa

    About a Boy is so funny, best show on NBC.

  • Tracy

    So upset that Almost Human and Surviving Jack were cancelled. Hopefully the SyFy channel will consider picking up Almost Human.

  • Kay

    NOT BELIEVEVE! That is an amazing show!! They should give it an honest chance!
    Extremely pissed now!

  • Liz

    I’m surprised About a Boy was renewed. That lead actor has a history of damning every pilot he shoots.

  • Rose

    Woo! Hannibal!!!! Best show on tv by a long shot :):):)

    @sky:
    No clue, Revolution was one of the best show on television period. NBC is full of idiots. I hope it get’s picked up by another channel shit even a web series would do it for me. I’m just really tired of getting into these shows only to have them cancelled too soon.

  • Charloe

    In the words of Miles Matheson: Canceling Revolution was a DICK move! Such a great show, I couldn’t wait to see what happened in season 3. I’m actually shocked that it wasn’t picked up!

  • jon m’shulla

    NBC has no clue. They manipulated the Revolution schedule and throw in a hiatus, then when it under preforms for a few weeks they cancel it. D’UH! You’re finally on top today and on bottom again next year NBC.

    Put Revolution on SCY FY

    Yeah Hannibal!

  • seriously!

    Wow… I really like Revolution . Such a shame ! Well now we know why NBC will always be third . They always cancel the good shows and keep all the crappy stuff ! JJ shoud have gone to ABC or CBS with his shows !!..And Believe was great too .. SMH .. what a bunch of morons !

  • Caroline

    Wait! What? Revolution was just starting to be excellent!!!! Men! Ok the first season was not the greatest but this season 2 was just amazing! It was getting’ better and better!

  • Julie

    I CAN NOT BELIEVE NBC HAS DONE THIS!! THERE ARE SO MANY WHO PASSIONATELY LOVED THE SHOW!! OBVIOUSLY THEY PAY KNOW ATTENTION TO THEIR AUDIENCES.. And have NO CLUE!! NBC IS ABOUT AS SMART AS THE U.S. CONGRESS.. TOTALLY OUT OF TOUCH AND ONLY CONCERNED WITH GOD KNOWS WHAT??

  • Stacy

    So upset about Revolution. Almost can’t believe it actually. Keep hoping for a “just kidding”. I know its a long shot to hope anther network picks it up, even if only for a 13 episode final season. I want an end to the story I spent two years getting into. Love all the actors. Can’t Imagine not being able to watch the show anymore. So angry and really bummed.
