Renewed: Parenthood, Harry’s Law. But NBC passes on Wonder Woman.

NBC has renewed family drama Parenthood for a third season.

The network also picked up Kathy Bates’ Harry’s Law for a second season. The show had a fairly large audience of 11.6 million viewers but not as good in its demos.

However, NBC has passed on David E. Kelley’s Wonder Woman revival.

The network isn’t saying why but scuttlebutt reveals the pilot earned mixed reviews at test screenings. And then there was all the online blow back about the costume – which seemed to de-emphasize the patriotism and play up the comic’s Greek mythology. Ultimately, the wardrobe department went back to the drawing board.

Also not making the cut were Don Johnson’s return to TV in Mann’s World, a drama about a hairstylist, and the Civil War-era Western Reconstruction and Ron Moore’s magic cops drama 17th Precinct.

That leaves us waiting word on Chuck, The Event and the Law & Order franchise. Chuck is apparently looking likely to come back for season five.

  1. Parenthood. Awesome show. My wife & I watch it religiously. But here in Australia it’s on at 9:30 on channel 7. Need it on prime time at 8:30. Sure it would get a lot bigger audience.

  2. Shame about 17th Precinct! It had all the main actors from Battlestar Galactica like James Callis and Jamie Bamber. I guess that means the latter will be sticking with Law and Order…maybe they can try shopping the pilot to Syfy?

  3. Fantastic news on Parenthood, it’s stars (Erika, Mae and Dax) are already tweeting about it.

    Chuck is likely to be back for at least 13 eps, crossing my fingers this happens.

    I’m amazed they passed on Wonder Woman, it’s been talked about for years, finally made a pilot, wonder if it will be better on SyFy?

    @tomothy so jealous of you right now LOL

  4. I am in the US at the moment and visited the Chuck set at WB studios in Burbank. They have finished filming this season, however the sets are all still up as they dont know whether they will be renewed. The set looks so small in real life, got to go through the courtyard and into Chucks apartment and looked into Ellie and Awesomes, and Casey’s. Also was in the back of the buy more where the cage is.
