CBS announces post-strike returns and premieres

CBS has begun announcing its plans for when series will be premiering their shortened seasons, as well as when new series will make their debut.


You can look to the week of Feb. 12, 2024 for your favorite series to be returning. This will be tied to the Super Bowl that week, and will lead to series running from Feb. to May. This will also mean that most seasons will be cut down to just 10 to 13 episodes in length.

Justin Harley’s new series Tracker will premiere following the Super Bowl on Feb. 11. There will be an encore presentation on Feb. 15, and episode 2 will debut on Feb. 18. The only other new series to debut this year will be The Good Wife/The Good Fight spinoff Elsbeth on Feb. 29.

Survivor 46 will debut on Feb. 28 with a 2-hour episode, followed by another 2-hour episode on March 6. On March 13 it will move to 90-minutes and will be joined by the season premiere of The Amazing Race.
