The Office will enter its ninth season. As of Thursday, NBC was working on a deal to sign John Krasinski, Ed Helms and Jenna Fischer to return. A contract has not yet been worked out for star/writer/executive producer B.J. Novak. The Office's Season 8 finale on Thursday drew 4.4 million viewers and a 2.2 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic — its lowest-rated season finale ever.
Parks and Rec, which stars Amy Poehler, will return for a 22-episode fifth season. Its Season 4 finale earned 3.4 million viewers and a 1.7 rating on Thursday.
Up All Night, starring Christina Applegate and Poehler's husband Will Arnett, and Whitney, starring Whitney Cummings, will both be back for a second season. Up All Night wrapped its freshman run last month to 3.12 million viewers and a 1.5 rating, while Whitney wrapped in March to 4.1 million viewers and a 1.5 rating.
