'NCIS: New Orleans' returning for a 5th season, CBS announces

"Life in Pieces", now in its third season, has not yet been renewed as well. Also getting a third season is Bull, the successful courtroom drama starring Michael Weatherly of former NCIS fame.

It will mark the fifth season for the series, which stars Scott Bakula as the head of a New Orleans-based Navy investigation unit - and which provides a weekly national showcase for local culture. News programs "48 Hours" and "60 Minutes" will also be returning.

Jeff Probst will continue on as the patriarch of Survivor which will get a stunning 37th season.

Prosecutors argued Ortega was motivated by money troubles and workload conflicts with the children's mother. "They are dead. However, prosecutors argued that she was aware of what she was doing and understood "every stab, every slash".

CBS on Wednesday renewed almost a dozen series for the 2018-19 season, including its Friday one-two-three punch of Hawaii Five-0, MacGyver and Blue Bloods. Similarly, Michael Weatherly's Bull doesn't get the same kind of buzzworthy attention that the actor's old gig NCIS still gets in Season 15, but it has also maintained a top slot in the scripted TV ranks, so Season 3 nearly definitely won't be the last renewal that Weatherly hears about in the coming years. Now in the middle of its game-changing Ghost Island season, Survivor will definitely be back again for more sun-drenched deviousness with Season 37. They join previously renewed The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Mom, NCIS, SEAL Team, and SWAT on the network's 2018-19 schedule, which will be announced about a month from now.

Conspicuously missing from CBS' early renewal drop: Long-running procedural Criminal Minds and fading Sherlock drama Elementary (the latter of which is set to kick off its long-delayed sixth season on April 30).

The network has renewed 12 of its top 20 scripted series and three of its top six most-watched freshman series (Young Sheldon, SEAL Team, S.W.A.T.).
