As expected, Parenthood has been renewed for a fourth season of 15 episodes by NBC.  NBC also confirms that 30 Rock has been renewed for a seventh and final season of 13 episodes. These renewals join Law & Order: SVU which was renewed for a 14th season yesterday.

NBC also picked up its 3rd and fourth new dramas Do No Harm and Infamous.

    nothing surprising. Sure Community and Parks renewals coming.

  • livvy

    It’s a good day for renewals. Cougar Town, SVU, Parenthood. Now all I’m waiting for is a Hart of Dixie renewal.

  • Dan

    138 total episodes for 30 Rock, the last batch likely for midseason, nice.

    Community should get a 22 episode season likely its last and same with the Office.

    Parenthood should get 22 episodes but my guess is it might be moved to Fridays or maybe Thursdays at 10.

    YESSSS for Parenthood!

  • SoundableObject

    Hurray. 30 Rock had a great run and I am deeply thankful it is getting a final run.

    NBC still have a long way to go to make up for the cancellation of My Name is Earl though…

  • Concerned Citizen

    Nice to hear Parenthood will be back, but I won’t be fully satisfied with NBC until they renew Community and cancel Whitney.

  • Allen

    Rumor on the interwebs is that Parks and Community are getting a 13 episode final season.

  • livvy

    Oh, and I know everyone predicted Parenthood would be renewed but it does give me more hope that the source who said Nikita would be cancelled and Parenthood renewed is right.

  • rob60990

    NBC just ordered drama Do Not Harm.

  • The End

    I bet some people can’t wait for the Harry’s Law cancelation news. It’l come in time, don’t worry.

  • Liz

    And Deadline is reporting that NBC has picked up the drama Do No Harm.

  • Bookworm

    Yay for Parenthood!

    Still, why is ABC being dead last with any other info outside of the stuff we’ve known for a week now (CT and TBS).

  • MMG

    YAY PARENTHOOD!!! How about a full season this time NBC?? Please?

  • Jay S.

    @Allen –

    No way, no how Community and Parks end at those episode count levels. Both will get a full season at the absolute minimum eventually, even if not a full-season commitment right away.

  • Bobby

    Beyond happy for Parenthood. Bittersweet for 30 Rock as I still find it to be really funny, but I get the actors want to move on I’m sure and it had a great run so can’t really be too upset about things.

    However…if Parks gets a “final” season, I may lose it.

  • AC75

    A few sites are reporting that Parks & Rec has been given a final run as well. Am I the only one surprised at that? Thought it would be around for a while yet.

  • Dan

    I think if CW renews Secret Circle, HOD should return too. Ringer and LA Complex are gone (but the latter will live on in Canada) and Nikita is dead too. Gossip Girl should get a nice final season as CW is known for given their veterans final seasons.

  • Dan

    Parks can’t get a “final” season then all four comedies (Office, Community, Parks and 30 Rock will be gone after next year)

  • Lane

    Rumors are right!!

  • SmG

    Great news !!!
