“On the verge of our 2013 fall scheduling decisions, we’re pleased to renew five drama series that will be important to our new season line-up,” stated Salke. “We’re proud and very appreciative of all of the actors, producers, writers and directors who work so hard to deliver such high-quality work week in and week out. These complex shows represent a broad range of genres and tones, and all of them stand out for us in a television landscape now filled with one-hour series. We’re especially pleased to be renewing Revolution and Chicago Fire — two first-season successes — and there will be more returning series announcements made in the next couple of weeks.”
Revolution has been averaging 11.8 million viewers and is the top-rated drama on ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox. Chicago Fire debuted with 6.6 million viewers and has surpassed those numbers eight times this season. Parenthood is up 8% over last season and is averaging 7.1 million viewers. Grimm, inspired by the Brothers Grimm fairy tales, is Friday’s #1 series for adults and has improved on its audience numbers by 14% over last season. And Law & Order: Special Victims Unit will be entering its 15th season with this renewal.
