NBC has released details of their Fall schedule, which includes the launch of six new series and The Blacklist being shifted to Thursday nights at mid-season.

Along with today’s announcement, NBC officially confirmed that they had renewed Parenthood for a 13 episode final season and that the seventh season of comedy Parks and Recreation, which was ordered earlier this year, will be the show’s last.

Things are looking fairly static for NBC’s existing series, for the early months of the Fall season at least. The Blacklist is keeping its Monday night 10pm/post-Voice time-slot through November, when new CIA drama State of Affairs will assume the slot. The Blacklist will then segue to Thursday nights in February.

Speaking of Thursday nights, NBC is doing away with its two-hour comedy block. Parks and Recreation does not feature on the network’s fall schedule, and will instead bow midseason. Instead the 8pm hour is being anchored by The Biggest Loser, which will serve as the lead in to new comedies Bad Judge and A To Z; with Parenthood following at 10pm.

Benched until midseason is limited event series AD, Heroes: Reborn and Emerald City. Also launching midseason is new entries Aquarius, Allegiance, Mission Control, Mr RobinsonOdysseyOne Big Happy and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
