Fall’s distinctive new comedy is Ghosts, based on the critically acclaimed BBC series, starring Rose McIver and Utkarsh Ambudkar as the new owners of a country estate inhabited by an eclectic group of deceased residents.

New series debuting later in the season include the medical drama Good Sam, starring Sophia Bush and Jason Isaacs; Smallwood, a comedy based on professional bowler Tom Smallwood’s life, starring Pete Holmes, Katie Lowes and Chi McBride; and the family competition series executive produced by LL COOL J and Chris O’Donnell, Come Dance With Me, hosted by Philip Lawrence. Returning shows include the Emmy Award-winning Undercover Boss, Emmy Award-winning The Amazing Race (pending its return to production), and the action-adventure drama Blood & Treasure.

SEAL Team will have a four-episode special event on Sundays before it moves to Paramount+, with S.W.A.T. taking the 10:00 PM slot later in the season.

Also this season, CBS will feature special-event programming, including The Activist, a competition series aimed at bringing change to important world causes; and two CBS Original Movies: A Christmas Proposal, starring Adam Rodriguez and Jessica Camacho; and Christmas Takes Flight.

Betty

Based on creator Crystal Moselle’s 2018 Sundance hit Skate Kitchen, comedy Betty will return to HBO for a second season Friday, June 11 from 11:00-11:30 p.m. ET/PT. The series follows five young women on journeys of self-discovery against the backdrop of New York City’s male-dominated skateboarding scene. The six-episode season will air on HBO and be available to stream on HBO Max. In season two, our five protagonists are stepping firmly into womanhood and tackling all the challenges it brings. As they navigate the pressures of adulthood, their male counterparts start to step up, step in, and become true allies, forming a united front for the greater good. Set in the last chapter of 2020, the season captures the pandemic in New York City, where masks and outside activities are the norm.
