NBC announced today that it has renewed freshman comedy The Good Place for a second season. The quirky comedy delivered decent numbers in its Thursday night slot where there was a chance for it to completely go off the rails. It was only conceived as a 13 episode season so it has already wrapped for the year but it had a well regarded season finale and some critical buzz in general.
The Good Place joins This is Us and The Voice as official NBC renewals. Sure to join them are The Wall, Chicago Fire, Law & Order: SVU, and Chicago PD. Likely renewals include Chicago Med and The Blacklist. Blindspot is on the bubble while it's not looking good for Timeless and Emerald City. Still to premiere this season on NBC are Powerless, The Blacklist: Redemption, Taken, Chicago Justice, Trial & Error, and Great News along with unscheduled freshmen Marlon and Midnight, Texas.
