Renewed: NCIS, NCIS: Hawaii, CSI: Vegas, Survivor, Amazing Race.
Good news for fans of US procedural and reality shows.
US broadcaster CBS has renewed a raft of shows which will be good news for fans and local networks.
US procedurals NCIS, NCIS: Hawaii and CSI: Vegas, which screen on 10 locally, have all been renewed.
NCIS will return for its 21st season, NCIS: Hawaii for a third season and CSI: Vegas for its third season.
Survivor, which debuts a new season next week, heads to its 45th season and Amazing Race to its 35th. They screen in Australia through Nine and Seven networks, respectively.
Left out of the mix for early renewals were Blue Bloods, SWAT, with press speculation negotiations are underway, plus East New York.
“This season CBS is continuing its winning tradition, delivering an unparalleled combination of top returning series and new hit shows that are entertaining huge audiences on both broadcast and streaming,” said Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment. “It is a testament to the stellar work being done by our best-in-class talent in front of and behind the camera that we have had yet another exceptional season, and I know we will only continue to build on this foundation of outstanding programming as we look ahead toward next fall.”
