The Short family’s long absence from CBS is finally coming to an end.
Life in Pieces, which last aired in May 2018, will be back for Season 4 on Thursday, April 18, TVLine has learned.
The comedy’s fourth season will kick off with two episodes, airing at 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm, before settling into its regular 9:30 time slot on Thursday, April 25. (Nina Dobrev’s freshman sitcom Fam, which currently airs Thursdays at 9:30, will have already wrapped its Season 1 run by that time.)
According to the official Season 4 description, the Short family “welcomes a few new family members and weathers an unexpected health crisis” in the new episodes, and “some long-hidden secrets are revealed in an unexpected way.”
As TVLine exclusively reported in August, Joey King (the real-life sister of Hunter King, aka Life in Pieces‘ Clementine) will recur in Season 4 as Morgan, a pregnant 17-year-old who plans to place her baby with adoptive parents Matt (Thomas Sadoski) and Colleen (Angelique Cabral).
Life in Pieces also stars Dianne Wiest, James Brolin, Zoe Lister-Jones, Colin Hanks, Betsy Brandt, Dan Bakkedahl, Niall Cunningham, Holly J. Barrett and Giselle Eisenberg.
