CBS Fall Schedule: Star Trek Discovery, One Day at a Time to Buy Time Until Returning Shows Arrive in November

STAR TREK: DISCOVERY

CBS has unveiled a rejiggered plan for the clearly unpredictable Fall TV season, in which Star Trek: Discovery and other acquired series buy time until NCIS, Young Sheldon et al are ready with new episodes.

“This is hardly a traditional fall season, but we are prepared with a strong slate of original content while our regular scripted series begin production,” CBS Entertainment chief Kelly Kahl said in a statement. “[W]e hope to start rolling out our previously announced fall series as they become available in November.”

In addition to beaming Discovery‘s freshman voyage onto its Thursday lineup, CBS will use Season 4 of the acclaimed Netflix-turned-Pop TV sitcom One Day at a Time to occupy some Monday real estate. Similarly, Manhunt: Deadly Games — Spectrum’s true crime anthology starring Cameron Britton, Jack Huston and Carla Gugino, and chronicling the aftermath of the terrorist attack at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta — will close out Mondays starting Sept. 21.

Scroll down for a full rundown of CBS’ fall lineup, as well as what’s on tap for November and then midseason — plus, an always helpful reminder of what’s already been cancelled.
