Five shows will be coming back in NBC for the 2015-2016 season.

The network has named the TV series they will renew nd the list is actually not that surprising. In a report by the Hollywood Reporter, NBC reportedly renewed "The Blacklist" for a third season, "Chicago Fire" for its fourth, "Chicago PD" for its third, "Law & Order: SVU" for season 17, and "Grimm" getting its fifth. Among the titles whose fates are yet to be decided are "Mysteries of Laura," "State of Affairs," "Allegiance," "Marry Me," "Odyssey," "One Big Happy," and "Constantine."

"The creative vision of the executive producers who've guided these outstanding dramas has been nothing short of incredible," NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said.

"We're highly appreciative of the passion they bring to their shows at every step of the creative process and we're thrilled to reward that dedication with these renewals."

For comic book fans, hoping for "Constantine" TV series to get renewed might only hurt you. The show, which stars Matt Ryan on the titles role, has been fighting for its life ever since its first episode. It does not perform that great in the ratings and even showrunner Daniel Cerone is not optimistic with its chances.

"I can't speculate. All I can say is, I continue to be humbled by NBC's continuing belief in the show (Constantine). We're a little surprised ratings haven't been as strong as we would have liked, and they would have liked, yet they are sticking with us. You just have to look at the list of shows that have been cancelled. If the ratings start dropping, they essentially pull it and put reruns of "Shark Tank." I'm not joking," Cerone said in an interview with Comic Book Resources last month.

"It's hard. It's a frustrating experience because we all live tweet. Half the time, we're all together doing it. We have such an incredible media presence and we're such a heavily streamed show. The fanbase is out there, they are just not watching in the manner that is as financially rewarding to a major broadcast network. That's the biggest frustration for us and NBC. We'll see where we end up at the end of the season."

"Constantine" TV series still has two episodes left. NBC hasn't said anything about the DC Comics-based show. Will it be renewed?
