NBC cancels ‘Community’ but Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Yahoo! or Crackle could give it life

Community, the cult favorite comedy loved by the country’s biggest comedy nerds, has been canceled by NBC after five seasons. Despite the return of series creator and original executive producer Dan Harmon, after being replaced in season four, ratings never did improve in any meaningful way. And unfortunately, NBC, like every other television network, needs ratings to sell ads against and to make some money.

Fortunately, it doesn’t take a world-class television analyst to make the following prediction: Community will be picked up by any of the incredibly comedy-forward streaming or Video On Demand services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Yahoo! Screen or, as one Laughspin Twitter follower suggests, Crackle, owned by Sony Television, which also owns Community. Castmember Ken Jeong just tweeted out his thanks to the cast for allowing him to flourish under the Community banner.
