"We're excited about the creative momentum the producers have established for all three of our new series, and now our fans will have the chance to see the full stories unfold for them this season."

The network said that season to date, it is up 9% year to year in total viewers, up 10% among adults 18-49, and is flat year to year in both adults and women 18-34.
