‘Bull,’ ‘Kevin Can Wait,’ MacGyver’ and 13 Other Series Renewed by CBS

”Man With a Plan,“ ”Superior Donuts“ and ”Madam Secretary“ are also among large crop of shows coming back

CBS renewed 16 series on Thursday, in addition to the previously announced returns of smash hits “NCIS” and “The Big Bang Theory.”

Five freshman shows will return for the 2017-2018 television series: “Bull,” “Kevin Can Wait,” “MacGyver,” “Man With a Plan” and “Superior Donuts.”

Additionally, “Blue Bloods,” “Hawaii Five-o,” “Life in Pieces,” “Madam Secretary,” “Mom,” “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “NCIS: New Orleans,” “Scorpion,” “Survivor,” “48 Hours” and “60 Minutes” are coming back again.

That means we’re still waiting for official word on the fates of “Elementary,” “Code Black,” “The Odd Couple,” “Criminal Minds,” “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders,” “The Great Indoors,” “Training Day” and “Ransom” are still technically up in the air. “Doubt” and “Pure Genius” have already been canceled.

Following the passing of star Bill Paxton, it doesn’t seem possible for “Training Day” to return. Plus, CBS already moved that poor performer to Saturdays. Speaking of which, “Ransom” was always on Saturdays, and just so happens to be the lowest-rated show on the Big 4 broadcasters. You can safely pencil those two in to not come back.

CBS will finish the current television season as No. 1 in total viewers — that’s the 14th time in 15 years Leslie Moonves can make that claim. The network will announce its new fall 2017-2018 schedule during its upfront presentation on Wednesday, May 17 at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
