All CBS pickup and renewals have been announced, and here is how the network’s schedule for the upcoming 2019-2020 season is going to look like with five new series and four returning shows shifting time slots.
The network shared all the changes that will come to its lineup on the fall, and this includes the addition of five new series to the schedule and renewed shows moving to different time slots to shake things up a little for the audience.
CBS Entertainment President Kelly Kahl issued a press release that reveals that the network is being very careful with their moves to guarantee a balance between classic shows and newcomers to keep things interesting.
"Our new lineup features both classic CBS shows and genres that viewers love, as well as some new series that push the boundaries of what you might expect from us," Kahl' said.
"We are also saving some very strong series for the second part of the year as part of a strategy to roll out new and returning series throughout the season," he added.
Three new comedies and two new dramas will debut on CBS this fall, and some series are shifting time slots to rearrange the schedule now that the beloved “The Big Bang Theory” is coming to an end after 12 seasons.

“Bull,” the drama series starring Michael Weatherly will be back for a fourth season.

Sitcom “Mom,” which premiered in 2013, was renewed for a seventh and eighth seasons, and it will have a big void to fill as the next CBS biggest sitcom now that “The Big Bang Theory” comes to an end.
“Young Sheldon,” which focuses on “The Big Bang Theory” main character’s childhood, will be taking over its parent show’s time slot on its fourth season.
The fan-favorite police procedural and crime drama series “Hawaii Five-O,”
“Blue Bloods,” “Magnum P.I.” and “FBI” are also set to return.
Star executive producer and writer Chuck Lorre, the mastermind behind shows like “The Big Bang Theory” and “Two and a Half Men” brings “Bob Hearts Abishola” to the CBS schedule.
It is a love story between a middle-aged American who falls in love with a Nigerian nurse while recovering from a heart attack.
“All Rise” is a courthouse drama centered on the lives of judges, prosecutors and public defenders set in Los Angeles. It stars Simone Missick as newly appointed Judge Lola Carmichael.
“The Unicorn” deals with the issues of loss, single parenting and trying to give love a second chance, all from a comedic perspective. The series revolves around the character Wade (Walton Goggins) following the death of his wife.
“Carol’s Second Act” marks the return of Emmy Award winner Patricia Heaton, famous for her roles in “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “The Middle,” this time starring as a divorced and retired teacher who decides to pursue her dream of becoming a doctor at age 50.
“Evil” is a psychological mystery that explores the thin dividing line between science and religion, as an unlikely team consisting on a psychologist and a priest who try to explain the unexplainable.
“FBI: Most Wanted” and “Tommy” are new dramas that will premiere later, on midseason, just like the new sitcom “Broke,” the expected return of Pauley Perrette to the network following her departure from “NCIS.”
Meanwhile, loyal fans of “The Big Bang Theory” have conflicting emotions as the iconic show comes approaches its final hour-long episode after more than a decade making them laugh and cry.
Rumor has it that it was its main star Jim Parson, who has created an unforgettable character with his portrayal of mad genius Sheldon Cooper, the one who prompted the ending of the show as he felt that it was time for his career to move on.
"I had just turned 46 and I don't know. It just seemed like the right time in life to go, OK, what's next?" Parsons told ET back in April. As difficult as it might be, he certainly has a point in trying to create something different.
The character lives on in “Young Sheldon” for now, and according to Lorre, it is not out of the question for other spinoffs to come after it.
