The darkest timeline has ended!

It's time to celebrate Human Beings: a return date for Community has finally been set! Huzzah! The comedy was shelved by NBC during midseason to make way for the return of 30 Rock, leaving the show's loyal fanbase wondering if we'd ever see the Greendale gang grace our TV screens again. 

Luckily, creator Dan Harmon had good news—aka Community's return date—to share with fans on Twitter today. But what does Community's return mean for 30 Rock and Parks & Recreation?

Mark your calendars, Community fans: March 15 at 8 p.m. "What you call 8:00, we call home," Harmon tweeted. "#Community returns to Thursday nights on March 15th."

With Community taking over its original timeslot, 30 Rock has been pushed to 8:30 p.m. Sadly, Parks & Recreation will go on hiatus, but don't worry. The network has already announced that Parks & Rec will return April 19 at 9:30 p.m., taking over for Up All Night.

We recently visited the Community set and talked with the cast about the loyalty of their fans. "What I can say is that the events that transpired shows that Community fans are the best fans in the world," Ken Jeong says. "That to me is the take-home point of all of this is that I've never experienced anything like this in my career. The shows are just getting better and we just have so much in store right now."
