CBS is gearing up for its most stacked line-up of autumn premieres in recent history, with the stars of Criminal Minds and Bones in new dramas and a Big Bang Theory prequel on the way.
The network has kindly dropped first-look teasers for all of these series, so we can dissect whether it was worth cancelling 2 Broke Girls and Matthew Perry’s Odd Couple to make room. Let’s have a look:
Cast: Mark Feuerstein (Royal Pains) and Linda Lavin (The O.C.)
Premise: This unique sitcom is a fictional recreation of the highs and lows of lead actor Mark Feuerstein’s own real-life marriage.
Fun Fact: To make sure he doesn’t get in trouble for telling tales out of school, Feuerstein created 9JKL with his actual wife Dana Klein.
Cast: John Larroquette (The Librarians) and Bobby Moynihan (SNL)
Premise: Follow the life of the quirky Alex Riley over a 50-year stretch.
Fun Fact: Moynihan is saying goodbye to Saturday Night Live after nine years for this sitcom gig.
Cast: David Boreanaz (Bones) and Jessica Paré (Mad Men)
Premise: An elite squad of Navy SEALS embark on highly-dangerous covert missions to protect US interests all across the globe.
Fun Fact: Boreanaz signed up as the drama’s lead on relatively short notice when original star Jim Caviezel dropped out.
Cast: Shemar Moore (Criminal Minds) and Stephanie Sigman (Narcos)
Premise: This remake of the blockbuster movie brings you along for the ride as the Los Angeles Police Department’s highly trained cops take to the streets.
Fun Fact: Moore recently made one final appearance on Criminal Minds to write out his character Special Agent Derek Morgan, so he could devote his time fully to S.W.A.T. from now on.
Cast: Jeremy Piven (Entourage) and Monica Potter (Parenthood)
Premise: This adaptation of a hit Israeli series follows a genius tech innovator who puts his skills to use in solving his own daughter’s mysterious murder.
Fun Fact: Heading up this English-language version will be Emmy Award-nominated The Good Wife veteran Ted Humphrey.
Cast: Iain Armitage (Big Little Lies)
Premise: Before he was the King of Bazinga, little Sheldon Cooper was trying to navigate his quirky and highly-religious family.
Fun Fact: Jim Parsons will not only produce this Big Bang Theory spinoff, he’ll also narrate it.
