NBC Renews ‘Chicago Fire,’ ‘Chicago PD’ and ‘Grimm’ For Next Season

There’s no word yet on whether “Law & Order: SVU” will return for a 16th season, but Dick Wolf’s two newest entries for NBC — “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago PD” — have been renewed for next season along with “Grimm,” the network announced Wednesday.

NBC, which has bolstered its drama standing over the last couple of years, previously picked up hot rookie “The Blacklist” for a second season. It had also given the go-ahead to comedy “Parks and Recreation” for a seventh season as well as reality staples “The Voice” (season 7) and “Celebrity Apprentice” (season 14).

In addition to “Law & Order: SVU,” which has provided a solid lead-in for “Chicago PD” on Wednesdays this winter, other NBC dramas awaiting word on their fate for next season include “Revolution,” “Hannibal” and “Dracula.”

Chicago Fire” ranks No. 1 in its Tuesday 10 p.m. slot in adults 18-49, averaging a 3.1 rating/8 share and 10.6 million viewers overall in “most current” averages from Nielsen. It is up 35% in the demo and 33% in total viewers vs. its averages on Wednesday during its rookie season.

“Chicago Fire” will head into its third season next year and “Chicago P.D.” will go into its second with executive producers Dick Wolf, Matt Olmstead, Danielle Gelber, Michael Brandt, Derek Haas, Peter Jankowski, Joe Chappelle (“Chicago Fire” only) and Mark Tinker (“Chicago P.D.” only). Both series are produced by Universal Television and Wolf Films and shot in Chicago.

“Chicago PD” is averaging a 2.5/7 in 18-49 and 8.9 million viewers overall since its January premiere, retaining 94% of its lead-in from “Law & Order: SVU.”

Grimm,” which will be entering its fourth season, is the top-rated Friday series so far this season in adults 18-49 (2.5/8) while averaging 8.1 million total viewers. The series was created by David Greenwalt & Jim Kouf and Stephen Carpenter. Sean Hayes, Todd Milliner and Norberto Barba serve as executive producers along with Greenwalt and Kouf.

“Grimm” is a Universal Television and Hazy Mills production.
