Fate may be smiling on those Hansens yet again. NBC is having second thoughts about cancelling its feel-good Friday drama Providence, which is slated to end Dec. 20. Based on the show's promising Nielsens, Peacock entertainment president Jeff Zucker told the cast last week that he's thinking of ordering another 13 episodes next season. "I told them I would take another look in January," the exec tells the New York Daily News. "I did not cement the door shut." Speaking of reprieves, NBC encouraged by high ratings for its Hunter: Return to Justice reunion pic has reportedly ordered eight new episodes of the 1980s cop series.
