NBC Upfronts: The Blacklist Moving to Thursdays Mid-Season, New Shows Getting Post-Voice Slots, and More


Update: Parenthood has been renewed for its sixth and final season. The show has been cut down to 13 episodes to give the Braverman family a proper send off.

Network upfronts are officially underway, and we’re continuing our coverage by bringing you the latest news on what’s happening over at NBC this fall. Following last week’s announcement of cancellations, renewals, and pick-ups,  the network has revealed their complete schedule and released a slew of trailers for their new series.

NBC’s hit show The Blacklist has been awarded the coveted post-Super Bowl slot for 2015. The crime drama starring James Spader and Megan Boone will initially air on Mondays following the reality competition show The Voice. It moves to Thursdays mid-season. The Voice will be retaining its Monday/Tuesday slots for the upcoming season featuring Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani as new judges. On Fridays, the network ups it’s sci-fi genre block by pairing Grimm with the latest comic-to-TV venture, Constantine. It’s based on the DC Comics series Hellblazer, and our first glimpse at the show left us speechless, in a good way.

The network has also just announced that they’ll be doing yet another live music special following the production of Peter Pan in December. NBC Entertainment Bob Greenblatt confirmed this morning the their next broadcast event will be the 1957 musical The Music Man.
