More renewals have been locked in place today with FOX renewing cop comedy “Brooklyn Nine Nine” for a fifth season and supernatural drama “The Exorcist” for a second.
‘Brooklyn’ has dropped off a bit this season, hitting a low of just over 1.7 million overnight viewers in its most recent airing, but it remains well regarded and a fifth season will take the series to the 100-episode milestone.
Though debuting soft with a 1.2 rating in Live+7, ‘Exorcist’ has remained steady throughout its run and scored good critical notices. A second season pitch was reportedly well received by the network and so plans are to continue.
AMC has renewed the Pierce Brosnan-led family dynasty tale “The Son” for a second season. The show is averaging 2.3 million viewers each week in delayed viewing, and is the number one original program on cable on Saturday nights.
Finally, ABC has renewed “Speechless” and “Fresh Off the Boat” for a second and fourth season respectively. The recent seasons of each have respectively earned a 1.6 rating and 5.5 million viewers per episode, and a 1.2 rating and 4 million viewers per episode.
