The 2021 CBS Fall TV Schedule is out. On Wednesday, CBS announced what viewers can expect from the 2021-22 TV season, including a handful of brand new series. The network will feature a number of new shows in the prime time lineup, including new shows from the NCIS and CSI franchises and some new prime time comedies, such as Ghosts and Smallwood.
Fans will also see the return of Sophia Bush to network TV with Good Sam, a medical drama about "Dr. Sam Griffith (Bush), a gifted heart surgeon who excels in her new leadership role as Chief of Surgery after her renowned boss falls into a coma." This marks Bush's first regular network TV role since she exited Chicago P.D. in 2017. In addition to the new, original scripted series, CBS is also debuting some unscripted series as well, such as The Activist and Come Dance With Me.
Viewers will no doubt also be excited about the return of Crime Scene Investigation when CSI: Vegas debuts this fall, bringing back much of the original cast. Two other franchises landing new series this fall are NCIS and FBI. First up, NCIS: Hawai'i will air on Mondays and star Vanessa Lachey, Yasmine Al-Bustami, Jason Antoon, and Noah Mills. Then on Tuesdays, fans can catch FBI: International, which is produced by TV uber-producer Dick Wolf.
Later in the 2021 season, CBS will also air Good Sam, a medical drama about a gifted heart surgeon – Dr. Sam Griffith – who excels in her new leadership role as Chief of Surgery after her renowned boss falls into a coma. When her boss wakes up months later demanding to resume his duties, Sam is tasked with supervising this egotistical expert with a scalpel who never acknowledged her stellar talent. Complicating matters is that the caustic and arrogant Dr. Rob "Griff" Griffith (Isaacs) also happens to be her father. It stars Sophia Bush as the lead character ("Chicago" franchise, "One Tree Hill") and Jason Isaacs (STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, "Harry Potter" films) as her father.
