At the Winter TCA Tour today, CBS announced early second season renewals for three hit freshmen dramas: NCIS: New Orleans, Scorpion, and Madam Secretary.
This has certainly been the best drama development season for CBS in years. In 2011-12 and 2012-13, there was just one new renewal each year (Person of Interest and Elementary). Last year, there were no drama renewals. This has led CBS's dramas to get older and older, but this year was a turnaround with three promising dramas for the long run. There was a fourth fall drama, Stalker, but its chances look quite slim especially with this news. Still premiering in the drama department are Battle Creek and CSI: Cyber in March.
