NBC has announced spring 2014 finale dates for its current lineup of shows.
Three shows will be closing out their seasons in April: Community, Parenthood and Parks and Recreation, with the latter receiving a one-hour finale. May sweeps runs from April 24 to May 21, which means Community, Parenthood and Hannibal will air their finales outside of this timeframe.

Season finales for new comedies About a Boy and Growing Up Fisher, and Saturday Night Live, will be announcement at a later date.
The Voice finale will be airing the same night as the final performance episode of American Idol, though it’s unlikely the two will directly compete. With two singers left at that point, Idol should only be an hour long and end by the time The Voice begins. (While Idol normally aired on Wednesdays and Thursdays, it’s being moved up a day for the finale week so that it can finish during May sweeps.)
Out of all the shows listed above, The Blacklist is the only one so far to receive a renewal for the 2014-15 season. Many of them, including Hannibal and Revolution are toss-ups at this point, though shows like Law and Order: SVU and Grimm are expected to be renewed.
