NBC has renewed “Parks and Recreation” for an entire season – so we will get a complete season 2!

NBC has picked up full seasons of Thursday-night comedies “Community” and “Parks and Recreation,” as well as its Wednesday night medical drama “Mercy.”

All three have shown stability in their time periods in recent weeks.

“We are very pleased with the critical and audience reaction to our wonderful new comedy ‘Community,'” said NBC entertainment president Angela Bromstad. “The cast and producers are delivering a first-rate, quality show that is very promising as the newest of NBC’s first-rate Thursday-night comedies.”

About “Mercy,” Bromstad added: “This drama has found a dedicated audience and continues to build in the ratings. We’ve seen future episodes, and we’re confident “Mercy” can be a strong player for us.”

Regarding Amy Poehler’s “Parks,” Bromstad said, “Parks and Recreation” has proven to be a steady performer for us on Thursday nights and gets better with every show.”

Absent from the pickup list: Monday night medical thriller “Trauma.”

“Community,” “Parks” and “Mercy” have been modest performers, but this back-nine order gives the trio some breathing room to potentially improve. NBC, the final broadcaster to order additional episodes of their new shows this fall, also has a limited inventory of scripted content to fill any open slots. The network has “Chuck” on deck, which has been speculated might replace “Trauma” should NBC pull the medical thriller.

NBC has “Parenthood” and “Day One” for midseason, though “Parenthood” has been delayed because of the illness of co-star Maura Tierney who was recently replaced by Lauren Graham, and “Day One” has been reduced to a mini-series, at least for now. Additionally, NBC is prepping multi-camera midseason comedy “100 Questions,” which has undergone significant casting changes since the pilot.

“Mercy” has averaged a 2.1 rating, 5 share in adults 18-49 and 7.8 million viewers and has boosted the time period 37% compared with the network’s performance in the time period last season. “Community” has averaged a 2.6 rating, and 5.7 million. Though it debuted last season, “Parks and Recreation” was brought back for 13 episodes this fall and has averaged a 2.1 and 4.8 million.
