Now, I feel like I need to emphasize that it was Sony who replaced Harmon, and not NBC.  Given our habit around here of calling out NBC’s baffling, shortsighted, and sometimes unethical treatment of its shows and performers, I really want to make it clear that this isn’t going to be another one of those articles.

And it’s entirely possible that Season Four will be amazing.  If the rest of the writing staff stays intact, I have faith in them to stay true to Harmon’s vision.  But it won’t be Dan Harmon’s Season Four, and that’s really a shame.  He’s said so often that he sees the show as a four-year story, taking the Study Group through graduation, and it’s a real loss that we won’t see his conclusion to that story.
