If you love horror dramas, military procedurals, or Chuck Lorre comedies, CBS is the place for you in the 2020-2021 television season. At the beginning of May, CBS renewed 23 shows on its lineup, including all three shows in the NCIS franchise. Meanwhile, Lorre comedies Mom and Young Sheldon were guaranteed a slot on next year's calendar, and so was Evil, the exciting supernatural drama from The Good Wife creators Michelle and Robert King.
Those shows will be joined by new series Clarice, a sequel to Silence of Lambs starring Rebecca Breeds as the titular homicide detective; a reboot of The Equalizer that stars Queen Latifah; and another Lorre comedy, B Positive, starring Thomas Middleditch and Annaleigh Ashford.
Of course, a new TV season also mean saying goodbye to some shows. CBS decided not to continue the mystery on God Friended Me after two seasons, and the network also canceled Man with a Plan and freshman comedies Broke and Carol's Second Act. Hawaii Five-0 also concluded its 10-season run in April. And due to the coronavirus pandemic affecting production, Season 41 of Survivor has been indefinitely shelved.
Want to find out more about CBS's lineup for next year? While CBS is also still in the dark about when its shows will be able to return to production in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the network is moving along with its plans and schedules for next year.
