CBS has unveiled its plans for the 2022-23 TV season, and there's a lot on the lineup that fans already love, plus some interesting new series in the mix. The NCIS and FBI franchises remain intact and will be on the schedule for the fall, as will Season 2 of CSI: Vegas.
On the comedy front, Young Sheldon is continuing and will buddy up with freshman hit Ghosts on the fall schedule. Bob Hearts Abishola and The Neighborhood are also returning for new seasons. They will have to hold down the CBS comedy blocks because the network didn't pick up any new half-hour shows for the 2022-23 season.
CBS did add a handful of new dramas, however, including the procedurals East New York and So Help Me Todd. While they're both procedurals, the shows differ wildly in tone. Amanda Warren stars in East New York as the new head of the NYPD's 74th Precinct in her old neighborhood. She wants to bring change to her community but finds that easier said than done when she encounters a staff that isn't on board with her recent promotion or her progressive ideas to improve the neighborhood. So Help Me Todd is a bit more lighthearted. with Marcia Gay Harden and Skylar Astin starring as a stringent lawyer and her lackadaisical private investigator son who end up working together and potentially repairing their fraught relationship. Those shows will be joined by Fire Country, which centers on a young convict who is trying to earn his second chance by fighting fires in Northern California.
Find out more about what's coming to CBS during the 2021-22 season below. Also, be sure to check out what we know about the fall TV lineup over on Fox, NBC, and ABC. The CW schedule will be released later this week.
