NBC Renews Five Dramas Including ‘Parenthood,’ ‘Revolution’

NBC is offering new seasons to dramasParenthood,” “Revolution,” “Chicago Fire,” “Grimm” and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.” All have received 22-episode orders.

“On the verge of our 2013 fall scheduling decisions, we’re pleased to renew five drama series that will be important to our new season lineup,” said Jennifer Salke, prexy of NBC Entertainment. “These complex shows represent a broad range of genres and tones, and all of them stand out for us in a television landscape now filled with one-hour series.”

The topper added: “We’re especially pleased to be renewing “Revolution” and “Chicago Fire” — two first-season successes — and there will be more returning series announcements made in the next couple of weeks.”

“Chicago Fire,” from Dick Wolf, will see its second season with this renewal. Program also may spawn a spinoff. “Revolution” and “Grimm’s” renewal will send the shows into second and third runs, respectively, while “Parenthood” will head into its fifth. Vet procedural “Law & Order: SVU” will enter its 15th season on the Peacock.

No word on frosh drama “Hannibal,” which bowed in March. Program has pulled so-so ratings for the network in its Thursday 10 p.m. timeslot, though drawn positive reviews from critics in the TV space.

“Smash” was moved to Saturday nights and is largely expected to not be renewed.
