"Community's" renewal is some much-needed good news for the show, which hasn't had it easy. Always on the bubble, "Community" has been yanked off the schedule, benched more than once and suffered from some very public feuds.
"Community" Season 5 will be 13 episodes.
At the end of Season 3, headlines about beef between show creator Dan Harmon and star Chevy Chase surfaced. Then, Dan Harmon left the show. Season 4, which was supposed to start in October 2012, was held until February 2013. While the show was in production, Chevy Chase left.
The season finale of "Community" aired on Thursday, May 9 and matched its highest rating in nine weeks with a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49 and 3.14 million total viewers.
