‘SEAL Team’ and ‘S.W.A.T.’ Returning to CBS Next Season
CBS confirms two more series for 2018-19
Fans of “SEAL Team” and “S.W.A.T.” can look forward to new episodes next season. CBS confirmed today that the network will be bringing back both shows for the 2019-2019 season, filling out the schedule with more fan-favorites. The freshman dramas are the latest confirmed renewals from CBS, following the breakout new comedy “Young Sheldon”. It’s no surprise that CBS renewed the trio, based on current Nielsen ratings “Young Sheldon,” “SEAL Team” and “S.W.A.T.” are three of the top five most-watched new shows currently airing on television.
“These exciting new dramas have been sensational additions to our schedule, are striking all the right notes creatively, and really connect with our viewers,” said Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment. “SEAL TEAM has strengthened our Wednesday line up – routinely winning its time period with over 10 million viewers and allowing us to build an even more powerful night, while S.W.A.T. has improved Thursday’s 10:00 PM hour by over 2.5 million viewers versus last season. Additionally, both are among the very top streamers on our digital platforms, including CBS.com and CBS All Access. We congratulate the talented casts and producers on an amazing year as we look forward to their return next season.”
According to CBS, “SEAL Team” is the network’s number-one new drama in viewers (10.23m) and is tied with “S.W.A.T.” in adults 18-49. “S.W.A.T.” currently ranks second in viewers (9.80m).
