NBC Renews 'Revolution,' 'Parenthood,' 'Grimm,' 'Law & Order: SVU' & 'Chicago Fire'

        Friday, April 26 - NBC has announced the renewal of five key drama series for the 2013-2014 season: Revolution, Chicago Fire, Parenthood, Grimm and Law & Order: SVU. All have been given 22-episode season 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," Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment, said. "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."
