NBC cancellations include Community

NBC unveiled its schedule for the 2014-2015 season, and it includes slipping Katherine Heigl CIA drama State Affairs into The Blacklist’s Monday at 10p slot starting November 17. Blacklist returns with new eps Thursday, February 5 at 9p, after a big Super Bowl push on February 1. The Biggest Loser moves to Thursdays at 8p, replacing a comedy block. Freshman comedies Bad Judge, starring Kate Walsh (Private Practice) and A to Z fill in the 9p hour. Go here for the complete schedule.

NBC canceled Community, Growing Up Fisher, Dracula, Believe, Crisis and Revolution, but picked up Parenthood for a 13-episode sixth and final season, and About a Boy for its second. The net also held onto psychological thriller Hannibal, for a season three.

Parks and Recreation was not on NBC’s sked, but will return for a seventh season – its last. “We have several of our strongest comedies by some of our best auspices being held for midseason, including the final season of Parks and Recreation,” said NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke. Other laughers being held: Mission Control, Mr. Robinson, One Big Happy and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
