Grimm didn’t meet the Reaper this year as NBC has renewed the dramatic fairy tale-inspired series for its fourth season. Also earning renewals for the 2014-2015 season are Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D., joining the already renewed Parks and Recreation, The Blacklist, Celebrity Apprentice and The Voice.
 
Chicago P.D. is returning for season two while Chicago Fire is returning for season three.
 
The network also announced viewership is up 20% year-over-year.
 
Details on the Newly Renewed Shows:

Chicago Fire ranks #1 in the Tuesday 10 p.m. ET/PT slot among the broadcast networks so far this season in adults 18-49, averaging a 3.1 rating, 9 share in 18-49 and 10.6 million viewers overall in “most current” averages from Nielsen Media Research through the first 25 weeks of the season. Chicago Fire is generating gains versus one year ago of 35% in 18-49 rating and 33% in total viewers. With its move from Wednesday nights last season to Tuesday nights this season, Chicago Fire has improved the Tuesday 10 p.m. hour versus NBC’s regular-program averages in the slot one year ago by 24% in adults 18-49 (to a 3.1 rating from a 2.4).
 
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.
 
Jesse Spencer and Taylor Kinney star as heroic Windy City firefighters who lay themselves on the line in dealing with everyday situations involving life or death. The show also stars Monica Raymund, Lauren German, Charlie Barnett, David Eigenberg, Yuri Sardarov, Joe Minoso, Christian Stolte and Eamonn Walker.
 
Chicago Fire has been nominated for a People’s Choice Award and is the winner of a Prism Award and Imagen Foundation Award.


Chicago P.D. is delivering a 2.5 rating, 7 share in adults 18-49 and 8.9 million viewers overall so far this season in “most current” averages from Nielsen. Chicago P.D. is retaining 94% of its 18-49 lead-in from Law & Order: SVU and 97% of its total-viewer lead-in in “live plus same day” results to date. In its first nine weeks on the schedule, Chicago P.D. has generated NBC’s nine best 18-49 results in the time period, excluding Olympics and Saturday Night Live specials, since Sept. 25, 2013.
 
Freshman series Chicago P.D. follows the uniformed cops who patrol the beat and go head-to-head with the city’s street crimes and the Intelligence Unit that combats the city’s major offenses, including organized crime, drug trafficking and high-profile murders.
 
The series stars Jason Beghe, Sophia Bush, Patrick John Flueger, LaRoyce Hawkins, Archie Kao, Jon Seda, Elias Koteas, Jesse Lee Soffer and Marina Squerciati.
 
With the renewal, Grimm – the popular Friday night series inspired by the classic Grimm Brothers’ fairy tales – will now head into its fourth season. Grimm is the #1 Friday series on ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox so far this season in adults 18-49, averaging a 2.5 rating, 8 share in adults 18-49 in “most current” averages from Nielsen Media Research. This is a 4% gain versus the show’s rating at this point in the season last year, while Grimm‘s average of 8.1 million viewers overall is up versus one year ago by 17%.
 
David Giuntoli stars as Portland homicide detective Nick Burkhardt, who discovers he’s descended from an elite line of criminal profilers known as Grimms. He increasingly finds his responsibilities as a detective at odds with his new responsibilities as a Grimm.
 
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 series also stars Bitsie Tulloch, Russell Hornsby, Silas Weir Mitchell, Bree Turner, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz and Claire Coffee.
