NBC Renews Five Dramas, Including 'The Blacklist' and 'Grimm'

While there's still no word about the fate of Constantine, NBC has announced the renewals of five dramas, including a fifth season for Friday-night mainstay Grimm.

The network also gave orders to The Blacklist (Season 3), Chicago Fire (Season 4), Chicago P.D. (Season 3) and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (Season 17).

"The creative vision of the executive producers who've guided these outstanding dramas has been nothing short of incredible," said Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. "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 Blacklist has been a hit for the network, averaging a 5.1 rating with 17.4 million viewers this season. The James Spader-starring crime drama moves to its new 9 p.m. Thursday slot this week.

A fantasy police procedural, Grimm has managed to hold its own in the traditional Friday night death slot, even while those around it --  Chuck, Whitney, Dracula, Constantine -- have faltered. This season, it's averaging a 2.1 rating with 7.2 million viewers overall.
