Shades Of Blue, The Good Fight & Other Renewals From This Week

Networks were in a giving mood this week, green-lighting several shows for another season. Here’s a quick rundown of all the renewals that I haven’t already covered.

With only two episodes in of its second season, NBC has already given the go-ahead to Shades of Blue for Season 3. Not a surprise since it’s doing quite well in its new Sunday night timeslot. Against its competition, it’s generating a +50% margin of victory in the timeslot in adult 18-49 rating.

“We’re so hugely appreciative of everything Jennifer and Ray do, and know it is due to their dedication, as well as the hard work of our incredible cast and producers, that ‘Shades of Blue’ has so clearly and compellingly earned a third-season renewal,” Salke said. “This show continues to mine powerful stories that always leave us hungry for more.”


Halfway through its first season, The Good Fight has also been renewed for a second season to premiere in early 2018. The Good Wife spinoff is CBS All Access’ first original scripted series. The streaming service, like Netflix, doesn’t share viewership data, but the show’s premiere that aired on CBS, generated 7.2 million in Live+SD (7.9 million in L3).

“We’re only a few episodes into the first season and the reaction from CBS All Access subscribers and critics alike has been phenomenal,” said Marc DeBevoise, President and COO of CBS Interactive. “This series and its characters are just beginning, and we can’t wait to see where Robert and Michelle King, their creative team and the amazing cast take The Good Fight next.”

Over at SYFY, The Expanse received a Season 3 order and 12 Monkeys was renewed for a fourth and final chapter. HBO also gave Judd Apatow’s comedy Crashing a second season. Others to receive good news were FX’s Legion and Taboo both getting Season 2 orders and The CW granting 100 a fifth.
