Hallelujah! Get out your datebooks, fellow Human Beings, because NBC has finally announced a return date for Community! The series' ordered-against-all-odds fifth season will debut with back-to-back episodes on Thursday, January 2 from 8pm to 9pm. Then it will remain at 8pm on Thursday, January 9, followed by Parks and Recreation's 100th episode at 8:30pm. Parks and Rec will finish out its sixth season in the 8:30pm time period. I'm going to go ahead and take complete credit for this one—and for the cancellation of Ironside and Welcome to the Family—since I just lamented the recent lack of Community developments in Wednesday's News Briefs. So you're welcome, world!
Also receiving a spot on NBC's midseason schedule is Dick Wolf's new drama Chicago P.D.: Set your DVR for Wednesday, January 8 at 10pm. If you're wondering why Chicago P.D. sounds so familiar, almost like something that's already on the air, it's probably because the show is a spin-off of Chicago Fire, which is also a Dick Wolf series and stars Jason Beghe and Jon Seda in the roles they originated on Chicago Fire, Detective Hank Voight and Detective Antonio Dawson, respectively. Former One Tree Hill star Sophia Bush also stars, as Windy City cop Erin Lindsay.
Unfortunately, there is still no word on a premiere date for Chicago Water Treatment Plant.
Are you excited for Community's return? Are you planning on watching Chicago P.D.?
