CBS Renews Evil For Season 2, Orders Additional Epsiodes For ‘All Rise, Carol’s Second Act, The Unicorn & Bob ♥ Abishola
CBS has ordered additional episodes of all five of its freshman series. Drama Evil, which was designed to produce 13-episode seasons, has been renewed for a second season to premiere in 2020-2021.
New drama All Rise and comedies Carol’s Second Act, The Unicorn and Bob ♥ Abishola all have received back orders for the 2019-2020 broadcast season.
Per usual, CBS calls them full-season orders though I hear at least some are partial ones. Like all Chuck Lorre CBS series, Bob ♥ Abishola is believed to have received a Back 9 pickup; the orders for the others are about 5 episode each.
While none has been a breakout hit, CBS’ freshman series have been solid performers in total viewers by this fall’s linear ratings standards.
