#TheBlacklist And Others Renewed While #Timeless is timed out.

NBC has announced Thursday that The Blacklist will be back for a fifth season, so grab another drink and a fedora hat for the Fall. 

The 22 episode renewal comes as Season 4 gets ready for a showdown between Reddington and his confident-turned-enemy Mr. Kaplan.

The series creator Jon Bokenkamp tells TVLine that Mr. Kaplan "will undermine (Red's) criminal empire in ways he never expected" and "intends to take him apart piece by piece" in the season's final installments.

The Blacklist has average thus far this season 5.4 million weekly with a 1.0 demo rating, down 20 to 30 percent from Season 3.

You can catch the Two hour season finale next Thursday at 9/8c on NBC. No word about the spinoff series The Blacklist: Redemption on getting renewed.

Meanwhile, Wednesday was with joy and heavy hearts for fans.

First, on Wednesday night, NBC has renewed Chicago Fire and it's spinoff series Chicago PD and Chicago Med learned from TVLine. Fire will be heading into it's sixth season while PD in it's fifth and Med in it's third.

No decision on Chicago Justice, but I think that too will get picked up.

Blindspot gets pulled out of the bubble category as it gets picked up for a third season. The renewal comes as the viewership dropped sharply when last season's #1 hit show moved from Mondays at 10pm to Wednesdays at 8 for Season 2.

But for fans of Timeless the news comes to shock and with heavy hearts that the series won't get picked up for a second season.

Eric Kripke, the executive producer/co-creator confirmed the news on Twitter saying that the "odds are long, but trying to find another home" for the series.

The show average 4.6 million total viewers and a 1.1 demo rating, it was NBC's No. 6 rated drama, matching fellow freshmen Chicago Justice and the recently renewed Taken and besting out on The Blacklist, Blindspot and Shades of Blue. But the series has had an enjoyed boost in the DVR.

The show's season 1 finale left in a cliffhanger, with Lucy discovering that her mother Carol is part of the mysterious Rittenhouse organization. 

And not to mention The CW has renewed iZombie for a fourth season.
