ABC fought back the urge to choose violence this week and opt instead to issue five TV renewals this afternoon — even as death beckons all the shows canceled by The CW yesterday stay in the air. In particular, the network has chosen to save comedy The Wonderful Years, The Connersand housekeepingas well as dramas big sky and A million little things.

renewal of The Wonderful Years comes after some tumult in the nostalgic revival series starring executive producer and frequent director Fred Savage recently fired from the series following an investigation into inappropriate behavior on the show’s set. The series stars Elisha “EJ” Williams as Dean, a young black man growing up in a middle-class family in Alabama in the late 1960s, and Don Cheadle as his adult self/narrator.

In the meantime, The Conners and A million little things Both are now set for season five (although the math for the former doesn’t take into account season one of the roseanne revival of which the series is a functional continuation). A million little things follows a group of friends who are forced to reconsider their lives after one of their buddies unexpectedly commits suicide.

The televisual benevolence is rounded off by both big sky and housekeeping will be back for season three, the former with new series star Jensen Ackles in tow, the latter continuing to explore the lives of a trio of siblings (Topher Grace, Caitlin McGee, Jimmy Tatro). work at very different points on the socio-economic ladder.

When THR Remarksthat is a very only to have merciful renewal list for ABC that is on track killed from three series this year. (Queens and Promised Land both ended with their first seasons, while Black eliminated at 8 as previously planned.) The Clemency stands in stark contrast to the aforementioned CW, which was preparing for forays by chain sawing large parts of its schedule earlier this week.
