CBS has broken its silence: The network has officially renewed nine dramas, one comedy and three of its reality series ahead of the network’s upfront presentation.
On the drama side, NCIS, The Good Wife, Criminal Minds, Blue Bloods, Hawaii Five-0, NCIS: Los Angeles, Elementary, Person of Interest and CSI: Cyber have all scored additional seasons.
Freshman comedy The Odd Couple and reality series Survivor, The Undercover Boss and The Amazing Race have also been renewed alongside 60 Minutes and 48 Hours.
Conspicuously absent from the list is CSI, which EW previously reported could end with a two-hour movie, and almost certainly will represent a series-finale order. We suspect that if a deal for CSI comes together, it might be announced at CBS’ presentation to advertisers on Wednesday.
The pickups join the previously announced renewals of Madam Secretary, NCIS: New Orleans, Scorpion, The Big Bang Theory, Mike & Molly, Mom and 2 Broke Girls. But Battle Creek, Stalker and The McCarthys weren’t so lucky, and they are now officially canceled. CBS already renewed several hits earlier this season, such as The Big Bang Theory and Scorpion.
Last week, CBS ordered several new shows, giving series orders to adaptations of Rush Hour and Limitless, in addition to the Criminal Minds spinoff, medical drama Code Black, Jane Lynch comedy Angel from Hell and the star-studded Life in Pieces.
