NBC announced on Wednesday that the network has handed out renewals to three consistent performing dramas, Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D. and Grimm.
The three shows follow the previously announced pickups of The Blacklist, Parks and Recreation, The Voice and Celebrity Apprentice. The network has been strong in the advertiser-important 18-49 demographic this season and was even the No. 1 late in the season, improving 20 percent from the previous year.
Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. both hail from the Emmy Award-winning producer Dick Wolf, with the latter program showing particular success during the mid-season. Since the shows both are set in Chicago and in the same 'universe,' there will even be a crossover episode on April 29 and 30 for both shows.
Chicago Fire, which is currently in its second season, has consistently won its 10 p.m. time slot in the demo with a 3.1 rating. Chicago P.D. has averaged a 2.5 rating and consistently retains most of its audience from lead-in program Law & Order.
Grimm, meanwhile, has been strong on Friday nights during its fourth season. It ranks as the No. 1 show for the night in the demo with a 2.5 rating, which is a 4 percent boost from the previous year.
