NBC Releases Season Finale Schedule
With spring (allegedly) on its way in, the time has come for networks to begin announcing their season finale schedules. NBC was the first to release the upcoming finale dates for their current batch of shows, although no renewals for next season were announced along with it.
NBC's two critically acclaimed comedies, Community
and Parks and Recreation
, are set to end their season runs on April 17 and April 24, respectively. On the Parks and Recreation
front, NBC has given hints that the series will return in the fall, while the network has been mum on whether or not Community
will jump off the bubble and into its sixth season.
On the drama front, Parenthood
is set to wrap up its season on April 17, while Hannibal
will end its second season on May 23. Parenthood
hasn't brought in the ratings NBC has hoped it would, but the series survived a similar situation last year to be renewed. Hannibal
routinely pulls in low numbers, but the show's tie-in with foreign networks and foreign investors has helped the series to survive its low ratings.
