It looks like good news is on its way to fans of the Code Black, Supergirl, Limitless, and Life in Pieces TV series. CBS CEO Les Moonves believes renewals are on the way for five new shows. It seems to us, the above TV series will be renewed for a second season. Moonves teased upcoming renewals at the Deutsche Bank Media, Internet and Telecom Conference, this morning.
He did not specifically name the series that will get a second season. Per Deadline, Moonves said, “We have about five new shows on this year. Of those five, I believe all five of them will be renewed, and we own four of them.” Yes, we only listed four series. This is where some detective work comes into play.
So far this year, the Tiffany Network has introduced Limitless, Code Black, Life in Pieces, Supergirl, and Angel from Hell. CBS cancelled Angel from Hell after airing only five of thirteen produced episodes, so it is out of the running.
Deadline already did the math for us, so we cribbed it:
What Moonves likely referred to was the four current freshman series and [Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders], which launches next week. That makes five shows which have a strong shot at coming back for a second season. He probably meant to say that three of them — Limitless, Code Black and Beyond Borders — are owned by CBS and two come from outside studios – Life In Pieces and Supergirl.
Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders officially premieres Wednesday, March 16, 2016, at 10:00pm ET/PT. Rush Hour, a spin-off of the Jackie Chan/Chris Tucker movie franchise, premieres Thursday, March 31st, at 10:00pm ET/PT. Check out our CBS spring schedule, here.
