'This Is Us' Fans Get Ready Because NBC Renewed It For Two More Seasons

NBC has renewed this season's breakout drama hit "This Is Us" for two more seasons, and the network is shifting it to a key 9 p.m. ET/PT slot on Thursday night.  

In addition, NBC will air it following the Super Bowl on Feb. 4.

A 12-episode revival of former hit comedy "Will & Grace", will also air on Thursdays. "Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders", tracking the true story of Los Angeles brothers who killed their parents will follow "Will & Grace".  

It's part of what NBC Entertainment chief Robert Greenblatt on Sunday called an attempted "return of must-see TV" that night as a promotional hook.

Cancellations included "Grimm", spring comedy "Powerless", limited series "Emerald City" and short-lived spinoff "The Blacklist: Redemption".

Among other schedule changes, "The Blacklist" will shift to Wednesdays and "Blindspot" also will move to Fridays.
