CBS hands out 18 early renewals — what's missing?
CBS gave out early renewals to 18 shows, including dramas Madam Secretary, Blue Bloods, and Hawaii Five-0, comedies Mom, Kevin Can Wait, and Life in Pieces, along with reality show Survivor.
Also renewed: Freshman series Bull, MacGyver, Man with a Plan, and Superior Donuts, as well as veteran shows NCIS: Los Angeles, NCIS: New Orleans, Scorpion, 48 Hours , and 60 Minutes. Renewals for The Big Bang Theory and NCIS had previously been announced.
So, what’s missing? Returning dramas Criminal Minds, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, Elementary, and Code Black, along with comedies 2 Broke Girls and The Odd Couple. New series Pure Genius, Training Day, Doubt, The Great Indoors, and Ransom are also absent. However, just because they weren’t given early renewals doesn’t mean they’re canceled. CBS plans to announce additional returning series pickups at a later date.
