NBC has renewed five of its dramas series for the 2013-2014 season.

The network announced Friday that it is bringing back "Parenthood," "Revolution," "Grimm," "Law & Order: SVU" and "Chicago Fire."

All five of those shows are getting 22-epsiode orders.

There's no word yet on the fates of Thursday-night comedies "Community" and "Parks and Recreation," but the network said more announcements are forthcoming.

"On the verge of our 2013 fall scheduling decisions, we're pleased to renew five drama series that will be important to our new season line-up," said Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment. "We're proud and very appreciative of all of the actors, producers, writers and directors who work so hard to deliver such high-quality work week in and week out. These complex shows represent a broad range of genres and tones, and all of them stand out for us in a television landscape now filled with one-hour series. We're especially pleased to be renewing "Revolution" and "Chicago Fire" -- two first-season successes -- and there will be more returning series announcements made in the next couple of weeks."

Tell us: Are you glad these five shows are returning? Are you worried for the fates of "Parks and Recreation" and "Community"?
