NBC's "Community" cancelled after five seasons.

NBC’s campus comedy “Community” won’t be returning for Season 6 as the network cancelled the show after its five seasons of overwhelming ratings.

The network cut short the fans’ dreams of “six seasons and a movie” on the Dan Harmon-created TV show about a group of students at a community college in the fictional Greendale, Colorado. The comedy has just wrapped its season 5, starring Joel McHale as Jeff Winger, Yvette Nicole Brown as Shirley Bennett, Gillian Jacobs as Britta Perry, Danny Pudi as Abed Nadir, Jim Rash as Craig Pelton, Ken Jeong as Ben Chang, and Alison Brie as Annie Edison.

“I hope that there's another season," Rash, told CBS News last month. "I think it's always nice when a show knows that this is it, so you can plan for that and sort of structure it how you want the world to come to an end ... [S]ix seasons and a movie feels exactly right for a show like 'Community.'”

Harmon and the co-stars of the series took to Twitter to mourn the cancellation of the show.

NBC also pulled post-apocalyptic sci-fi series "Revolution," fantasy drama "Believe," "Crisis" and the comedy "Growing Up Fisher" from its series lineup, while renewing "Hannibal," single-camera sitcom "About a Boy," crime drama series “Law & Order: SVU," fantasy drama "Grimm," "The Blacklist," "Chicago Fire" and "Chicago PD."
