NBC will keep “The Night Shift” clocked in for another year.

The network announced Thursday that it’s picked up a fourth season of the medical drama, which follows the overnight staff of a hospital in San Antonio. It’s due to return in 2017, with a premiere date to be announced later.

NBC has a number of shows already in line for the remainder of the regular season, so a summer spot — where “The Night Shift” has spent two of its previous three seasons — seems the most likely place for the show.

“Week after week ‘The Night Shift’ tells incredibly engaging and emotional stories that draw us into a unique world,” NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke says in a statement. “We are delighted to renew the show for an exciting fourth season and look forward to continue working with such a great cast and executive producing team.”

“The Night Shift” put up decent ratings for NBC over the summer, averaging a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49 (live + same-day) and just under 5 million viewers. It typically grew to a rating in the mid-1s with a week of DVR and on-demand viewing.

The show joins these series that have been renewed for 2017 and beyond.
