Official: NBC’s 30 Rock will conclude after the upcoming seventh season.

We understand if you’re a little confused on this point.

Less than 24 hours ago, NBC entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt told reporters on a conference call they shouldn’t expect 30 Rock or any of the network’s comedies to necessarily end next season. “As they age [ordering a final season is] something you look at each year, but we haven’t definitively said that to any of them yet,” Greenblatt said.

His statement surprised reporters because sources have been whispering for weeks that this was going to be the last season of 30 Rock. But at the NBC upfront presentation to advertisers Monday, Greenblatt declared 30 Rock is, indeed, ending. The last episode will be a one-hour series finale. NBC’s full fall schedule here.
