NBC on Friday renewed five of its drama series, including critical favorite "Parenthood."

The network is also bringing back "Revolution," "Grimm," "Law & Order: SVU" and "Chicago Fire."

All the shows -- including "Parenthood" -- received full 22-episode orders for next season.

"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, in a press release. "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."

The Berkeley-based "Parenthood" has spent most of its four seasons on the so-called "bubble," a candidate for cancellation. But this past season, a breast cancer storyline involving a character played by Monica Potter received wide attention and the show actually saw an 8 percent ratings increase.

There was no word on the fate of bubble comedies "Parks and Recreation" and "Community," but Salke said there will be "more returning series announcements made in the next couple of weeks."

NBC dramas still awaiting to hear their fate include "Hannibal," "Smash" and "Deception."
