Community was due to return to our screens on October 19th, but NBC have announced that they’re delaying the premiere of the new season indefinitely. Whitney, which was also due to premiere on the 19th, has also been postponed. NBC have issued the following statement regarding their decision:
“Given the success we’ve had for the past four weeks – including winning the first week of the season in A18-49 – 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 October 19th. 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.”
Hopefully the network will announce the new season premiere dates ASAP. Are you disappointed by NBC’s decision? Let us know in the comments!
