'Parks And Recreation' Renewed, 'Whitney' Cancelled
There will be more Amy Poehler in our lives. (And I couldn't be happier!!)
To the surprise of no one, NBC has renewed veteran comedy Parks and Recreation for a sixth season. The Amy Poehler comedy, which had been paired with departing series The Office, has shined as the network's next best comedy going into the new season.
Update: The renewal announcement wasn't the only decision made on Thursday. NBC has chosen to cancel comedies Up All Night, Whitney, 1600 Penn and Guys With Kids. All four programs have struggled in the ratings to find an audience, with Whitney being the only show to be end on its second year (the other three were freshman comedies).
No word yet on the status on perennial and fan favourite bubble series Community. Stay tuned for more details as renewal and cancellation notices are revealed!
