NBC Renews Three Series for Next Season Deadline

NBC has renewed three series for next season. All three shows are produced by NBC's sibling studio, Universal TV.

The shows renewed are "Chicago Fire," its spinoff "Chicago P.D." and "Grimm," reports our good friend Nellie Andreeva on Deadline.

Andreeva writes: "The renewal of Dick Wolf’s 'Chicago Fire' for a third season and 'Chicago P.D.' for a second opens the door to further expanding the franchise with a long-rumored Chicago-set medical drama, though that likely won’t happen for next season.

"The story adds: " 'Grimm' was the first new series launched by NBC’s new regime to get traction, adding additional significance to its renewal for a fourth season. 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."

The story notes that the three series that have been renewed "join hot freshman 'The Blacklist,' which already was picked up for a second season. Also set to return next season are veteran comedy 'Parks and Recreation' (Season 7), flagship reality series 'The Voice' (Cycle 7), and 'Celebrity Apprentice' (Cycle 14), which skipped a season."
