Attention Greendale Human Beings! Our months-long national nightmare is over!

Earlier today on Twitter, "Community" creator Dan Harmon wrote the following message: “What you call 8:00, we call home. 'Community' returns to Thursday nights on March 15th.”

But when NBC gives, it also takes away. The network confirmed the return of "Community" to 8pm on Thursdays, with "30 Rock" sliding back to 8:30pm. However, this means that "Parks and Recreation" will go on hiatus for over a month. "Parks and Recreation" will resume its fourth season on Thursday, April 19 in the 9:30pm timeslot after "Up All Night" finishes its first season.

NBC also revealed its other midseason sitcom premieres. The peacock network will debut "Bent" on Wednesday, March 21 at 9pm and "Best Friends Forever" on Wednesday, April 4 at 8:30pm. "Bent" features former "Perfect Couples" star David Walton as "a free-spirited handyman" who is hired by a divorced mother (played by Amanda Peet) to revitalize her new home. "Best Friends Forever" stars Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham play a pair of life-long friends who reunite in Brooklyn after Lennon's marriage hits the rocks.

Betty White's unscripted series, "Betty White’s Off Their Rockers" will also move to NBC Wednesdays at 8pm, starting on April 4.

"We are happy to have an unprecedented amount of original content on NBC this spring,” said NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt. "'Bent,' 'Best Friends Forever' and 'Betty White’s Off Their Rockers' are welcome additions to the Wednesday schedule, and we know that the loyal fans of 'Community' will be pleased with its return to its home on Thursdays at 8 PM.”
