CBS Renews ‘SEAL Team,’ ‘SWAT,’ ‘Bull,’ ‘Hawaii Five-0,’ ‘MacGyver’ and ‘Madam Secretary’

News series “60 Minutes” and “48 Hours” are also set to return for 2019-20 season


CBS has renewed six dramas for next season in “SEAL Team,” “SWAT,” “Bull,” “Hawaii Five-0,” “MacGyver” and “Madam Secretary.”

Additionally, newsmagazines “60 Minutes” and “48 Hours” will also return for the 2019-20 season.

It will be the third season for both “SWAT” and “SEAL Team” and the fourth for “Bull” and “MacGyver.” “Madam Secretary” will head into its sixth season, while “Hawaii Five-0” gets a 10th season.

The renewal for “Bull” comes a few months after it was revealed that in January of 2018, CBS agreed to pay Eliza Dushku a multimillion-dollar settlement following her complaint that she was written off the drama after she confronted series star Michael Weatherly about multiple instances of inappropriate behavior.

“60 Minutes” will return for its 52nd season, while “48 Hours” will get its 30th campaign this fall. “60 Minutes” averages 10.9 million viewers every Sunday evening, while “48 Hours” pulls in 4.4 million on Saturdays. In February, CBS named Bill Owens to replace Jeff Fager as the executive producer for “60 Minutes.”

The six dramas join “Criminal Minds” (for its 15th and final season), “FBI,” “God Friended Me,” “Magnum P.I.,” “Mom” (for Seasons 7 and 8), “NCIS,” “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “NCIS: New Orleans,” “The Neighborhood,” “Young Sheldon” (for Seasons 3 and 4) and “Blue Bloods” in being renewed for next season.

With these pickups, CBS has now renewed 18 series for next year. “The Big Bang Theory” will air its 279th and final episode on May 16.

Still on the bubble for CBS are “The Code,” “Fam,” “Happy Together,” “Life in Pieces,” “Ransom” and “Man With a Plan.” Both “Blood & Treasure” and “Instinct” (Season 2) will air in the summer.
