The television landscape can often prove itself to be a fickle place. Some shows die, while others live to see another day. Despite the recent cancellation of shows such as Public Morals and Legends, TNT has also decided to double down on some of its existing hit programs and keep them around a little while longer. The network has just announced that it will be renewing The Librarians, Major Crimes, and Murder in the First for more seasons in 2016.

Let's get the ball rolling with The Librarians, the first of TNT's renewals, which will get a Season 3. For those of you unaware, The Librarians – based upon a popular trilogy of TNT movies starring Noah Wyle – revolves around a group of individuals within an ancient organization who work together to protect the world from dark magical forces that threaten our very existence. The series is currently in the middle of Season 2 and stars Rebecca Romijin, Christian Kane, Lundy Booth, and John Kim as the titular heroes.

Ordered for Season 5, Major Crimes centers upon the major crimes unit of the Los Angeles Police Department, and the high profile crimes they deal with on a weekly basis. The show itself is actually a spinoff from TNT's earlier hit drama series The Closer, which starred Kyra Sedwick. Currently in the midst of Season 4, Major Crimes stars Mary McDonnell, G.W. Bailey, Tony Denison, as well as Phillip P. Keene.

Murder in the First, like Major Crimes, is a crime drama centering on the lives of California detectives – San Francisco in this case. Starring Taye Diggs and Kathleen Robertson, the series focuses in on singular violent crimes, with the first season revolving around the murder of a tech company executive, and the most recent season revolving around the topical issue of urban gun violence. We can't wait to see what Season 3 will bring.

For now, these dramas will live on to fight another year. We here at CinemaBlend will keep you up to date on any and all information related to series renewals, as well as the inevitable cancellations from all the major television networks. Stay tuned!
