CBS' Zoo, Big Brother, New Asteroid Thriller Get Summer Premiere Dates

Zoo will come roaring back on a new night — Thursday, June 29 at 10/9 — as part of CBS’ upcoming summer slate.

(Increasingly loosely) based on the James Patterson novel, the summertime drama will again star James Wolk, Kristen Connolly, Billy Burke, Nonso Anozie, Alyssa Diaz and Josh Salatin, while Gracie Dzienny (Chasing Life) has joined the cast as Mitch’s grown-up daughter Clementine. (‘Member, Season 2 ended with that wacky 10-year time jump.)

CBS also announced that Big Brother will launch its 19th (broadcast) season on Wednesday, June 28 at 8 pm, followed by Thursday and Sunday editions.

Among fresh fare, the Eye network’s live-action Candy Crush game show will debut Sunday, July 9 at 9 pm, while Salvation — an asteroid-hurtling-toward-Earth thriller starring Jennifer Finnigan (Tyrant), Santiago Cabrera (The Musketeers) and Charlie Rowe (Red Band Society) — will enter orbit on Wednesday, July 12 at 9/8c.
