CBS has ordered two additional episodes for both season one of its new SWAT TV show and for the second season of Kevin Can Wait.
The Tiffany Network had previously expanded SWAT to what it was calling a full season of 20 episodes, back in November. The latest order will give the police drama a more traditional first season of 22 episodes. Shemar Moore, Stephanie Sigman, Alex Russell, Jay Harrington, Lina Esco, Kenny Johnson, and Peter Onorati star.
Meanwhile, Kevin Can Wait has been upped from 22 to 24 episodes. The family sitcom, starring Kevin James, replaced its freshman female lead, Erinn Hayes with James’ former King of Queens co-star, Leah Remini, in advance of season two. The CBS cast also includes Taylor Spreitler, Ryan Cartwright, Mary-Charles Joes, James DiGiacomo, Gary Valentine, and Leonard Earl Howze.
