Still riding high from this week's hilarious Community episode? We've got more good news:

NBC has renewed the Joel McHale-anchored comedy for a second season, while also picking up The Office and 30 Rock for the 2010-2011 slate.

"We are happy to give these early pickups to these critically acclaimed, incredibly funny comedies,” said Angela Bromstad, President, Primetime Entertainment, NBC and Universal Media Studios. “As a result, we look forward to continuing our rewarding partnership with the respective creative teams and talented show-runners for 30 Rock, The Office and Community as they all consistently deliver quality shows.”

Meanwhile, we have scoop on how season one of Community will conclude: with the Greendale prom.

"We're definitely going to give the fans something worthy of a finale," said producer Dan Harmon. "We follow the school year, so we get to do prom. It has to end with a prom-bang, my homage to a Dawson's Creek-y vibe."

Overall, "the last couple of episodes satisfy all the urges you have about Community. We're batting cleanup with the drama, the sap and the comedy, as well," Harmon added.
