NBC announced 2015-2016 season renewals for The Blacklist (season three), Chicago Fire (season four), Chicago PD (season three), Law & Order: SVU (season 17) and Grimm (season five).
NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said, “The creative vision of the executive producers who’ve guided these outstanding dramas has been nothing short of incredible. We’re highly appreciative of the passion they bring to their shows at every step of the creative process and we’re thrilled to reward that dedication with these renewals.”
The Chicago Fire, Chicago PD and SVU renewals will make three shows currently on NBC for the prolific Dick Wolf, with a potential fourth – spinoff of Chicago Fire, Chicago Med – set to air as the 19th episode of Fire. Law and Order SVU ranks as the longest-running drama on television and, this season, is delivering its biggest overall audience since the 2008-09 season. The Blacklist, which received major ratings after its post -Super Bowl appearance has just moved to NBC all -drama Thursday night lineup.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hannibal, About a Boy, and season newcomers Mysteries of Laura, State of Affairs, Allegiance, Constantine, Marry Me, Odyssey and One Big Happy will likely hear news of their fates in May after NBC reviews its pilot needs and midseason performance.
