'Revolution', 'Parenthood', three more renewed by NBC

Fret not, NBC loyalists — the Peacock network has issued the anticipated early renewals for five of its popular drama series.

RevolutionRevolution, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Chicago Fire, Parenthood, and Grimm all received full 22-episode orders for next season. The five shows were expected to be picked up, so this announcement does not come as a shock.

"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 NBC Entertainment president Jennifer 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."

Parks and Recreation is the only NBC comedy practically assured a pickup for its sixth season, and the highly-rated singing competition The Voice is all but guaranteed to be back. The rest of the lineup isn't such a sure bet to return, though.

Are you glad to see these five shows already renewed?

- Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
- Revolution (2012)

Wife is pleased about Chicago Fire, I'm happy about Grimm, and while I do watch Revolution, it's kinda "meh", so fully expected it to be canned.
