A number of shows are being renewed for season 7 and season 3, with the showrunners of both seasons saying that the network is ready to go into the new season with the series.
“There is a lot of excitement around the new seasons of The Big Bang Theory, Scandal and The Leftovers,” said executive producer Jennifer Salke in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
“There’s a lot more that we can announce and show.
It’s just exciting to get back in there and see the stories and the characters.
I think we’ll be able to confirm the exact number of episodes coming back in the new series as soon as the writers are finished.”
Salke said she would not disclose the exact premiere date, but that it would be “around the middle of January” before the season 2 premiere.
She did not specify whether the show would have a premiere on the same day, which would be the same as the season finale.
The Leftovers, which ran from 2012-2015, was canceled after eight seasons and more than a half million viewers.
But the showrunner has not made any public announcements about the series return.
The news comes as NBC is trying to build buzz for its upcoming primetime lineup.
Last week, the network confirmed that the upcoming freshman comedy series The Neighbors would be returning to its regular time slot of 10 p.m. on January 13.
