CBS Renews 11 Shows


CBS has renewed 11 shows and all of the freshman shows. Check out the news below!


CBS has given early renewals to 11 returning series: dramas Blue Bloods, NCIS: Los Angeles, NCIS: New Orleans, Hawaii Five-0, Madam Secretary, Elementary and Scorpion; comedies Mom and 2 Broke Girls; and reality veterans Survivor and The Amazing Race. They join flagships NCIS and The Big Bang Theory, which already have deals for next season.

CBS opted not to address its freshmen series including Supergirl, Life In Pieces, Limitless and Code Black, which bowed in the fall. Of the returning players, there are two major omissions in veteran crime procedural Criminal Minds and sophomore CSI: Cyber.

As for the freshmen shows, CBS Corp. chairman Leslie Moonves indicated recently that the network intended to renew five first-year series. While his breakdown was a little off, it is believed that he was referring to Limitless, Code Black and Beyond Borders — which are owned/co-owned by CBS — and Life In Pieces and Supergirl — which come from outside studios.
