NBC LogoWhile NBC has yet to announce early renewals for any of their major scripted programming, the good news coming out now is that the network appears to be closer than ever to making something happen.

According to a new report from Deadline, both “Revolution” as well as “Grimm” are likely days away from being confirmed as returning for new episodes, while there will also be something formal about “The Voice.” (We already know that a season 5 is happening, so this may be about a season 6.) While “Revolution” may continue to shed viewers this week, it’s track record all year long is probably enough to get it to come back; meanwhile, “Grimm” is consistently one of Friday’s best dramas in the 18-49 demographic, and it also pulls in solid DVR figures.

In addition to these shows, we personally believe that “Chicago Fire,” “Parenthood,” and “Parks and Recreation” are all near locks to be renewed, and we could feasibly see three of the following five comedies (“Go On,” “The New Normal,” “Community,” “Whitney,” and “Guys with Kids”) coming back. The latter may be helped thanks to the relationship between the network and their future “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon, who is an executive producer on the show.

There are only a small handful of shows right now that we believe to be officially dead, and they include “Smash,” “1600 Penn,” “Fashion Star,” and “Deception.” At the moment, everything else seems to at least have some sort of a shot.

Are there any shows that you for sure what to see return for additional seasons? Be sure to share some more of your thoughts below, and you can also read our latest “Revolution” preview article by heading on over to the link here.
