It is a done deal. Despite terrible ratings, the word came down tonight that NBC and Sony came to terms, granting Community a fifth season. No word yet on The New Normal, but from what I heard this afternoon, their fates were tied together as Sony also produces the Ryan Murphy comedy. Friday’s confirmation comes courtesy Alison Brie who many also know for her recurring role as Pete’s wife on Mad Men.
It’s official. Season 5 ladies and gentlemen.

Update: I guess The New Normal fell away in negotiations. That show has been cancelled.
