We have some returning series pick-ups for 2015-16! NBC has announced it's renewing dramas The Blacklist (season 3), Chicago Fire (season 4), Chicago P.D. (season 3), Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (season 17) and Grimm (season 5) for the 2015-16 season. The Blacklist now airs Thursdays at 9, while Chicago P.D. and Chicago Fire air Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10. Veteran Law & Order: SVU airs Wednesdays at 9 and Grimm anchors Fridays at 9. Among the dramas not given early pick-ups were freshman The Mysteries of Laura, Constantine, and State of Affairs.
