CBS's 2020-2021 Fall TV Lineup: Everything We Know So Far

Buckle up for a new season!

[Editor's note: This is the 2020-21 CBS lineup. Here is the 2021-22 CBS Fall TV lineup.]

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 fromThe Good Wife creators Michelle and Robert King

Those shows will be joined by new series Clarice, a sequel to Silence of Lambsstarring 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 Meafter two seasons, and the network also canceled Man with a Plan and freshman comediesBroke 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.
