CBS has announced premiere dates for nine of its returning shows, as well as one of the network’s new scripted series.
The series are All Rise (season two, Nov. 16th), B Positive (series debut, Nov. 5th), Bob ♥ Abishola (season two, Nov. 16th), Mom (season eight, Nov. 5th), NCIS (season 18, Nov. 17th), NCIS: Los Angeles (season 12, Nov. 8th), NCIS: New Orleans (season seven, Nov. 8th), The Neighborhood (season three, Nov. 16), SWAT (season four, Nov. 11th), and Young Sheldon (season four, Nov. 5th).
Other shows that CBS previously announced would be returning in Fall 2020 include Blue Bloods, Bull, The Equalizer, Evil, FBI, FBI: Most Wanted, MacGyver, Magnum PI, SEAL Time, and The Unicorn. It’s unclear if these shows will still debut before the end of 2020 or, if they will be delayed until 2021. The ongoing pandemic obviously has kept things in flux.
Here’s the announcement from CBS:
