There has been much excitement surrounding the renewal of certain favorites (The Voice, Law & Order: SVU, etc.) and disappointment for those who had become invested in the series that hit the air in the 2014-2015 primetime season (the most notable of these is Constantine, a series which many were quite upset got canceled after the aforementioned single season). The upcoming series have piqued interest regarding the casting and synopsis, especially those of the upcoming dramas and science fiction shows. Now that the NBC Fall 2015-2016 Lineup has been announced (there is still room for changes, however, so viewers should not dedicate themselves too fully into any given one that has not substantiated itself on the network for at least a few years at this point) all TV lovers have to do is wait for September to roll around.
