‘30 Rock’ Near Final-Season Renewal; NBC Eyes Short Orders For Returning Comedies

NBC’s ’30 Rock’ To End Its Run Next SeasonNBC’s ’30 Rock’ To End Its Run Next Season

UPDATED: It looks like NBC‘s 30 Rock will be back for a likely abbreviated seventh and final season. I hear the Emmy-winning comedy has closed deals with its key high-level writers to return for what is expected to be a final season of 13-14 episodes. Among those who have signed on to go back are co-executive producers Jack Burditt and Josh Siegal & Dylan Morgan. As for NBC’s other bubble comedies, newbie Whitney does not appear likely to return. Fellow freshman Up All Night has been looking a little better, but its executive producer Jon Pollack just moved to NBC’s newly picked up comedy series Go On as a co-executive producer. Is this a bad sign for the future of the family comedy starring Christina Applegate or just a case of staff turnover? Meanwhile, veterans Community and Parks And Recreation both are in the running, with Park‘s renewal considered likely. I hear that, like 30 Rock, all returning NBC comedy series are likely to get short orders. That would save some coin and allow NBC to pick up more new comedies.
