NBC President of Entertainment Jennifer Salke says viewers will be getting more episodes of Revolution, Chicago Fire, Parenthood, Grimm, and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. The network’s renewed all five dramatic series for the 2013-2014 season, and according to NBC all five shows have been given 22 episode renewal orders.
“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.
