CBS’ Limitless is indeed living up to its name: The freshman series has received a full-season, 22-episode order, the network announced Friday.
The drama — which stars Jake McDorman as a slacker musician who takes the brain-enhancing drug NZT to fulfill his real potential — opened on Sept. 22 to 9.9 million total viewers and a 1.9 demo rating. Its latest outing on Oct. 20 pulled in 7.9 mil/1.4.
“We’re excited how Limitless continues to evolve creatively each week and stand out with its unique style of storyelling,” CBS Entertainment President Glenn Geller said in a statement. “It’s off to a strong start in a highly competitive environment.”
Limitless is the fifth freshman 2015-16 series to land a full-season order, behind NBC’s Blindspot, ABC’s Quantico and Dr. Ken and Fox’s Rosewood.
The network has also ordered six additional scripts for rookie medical drama Code Black.
