Saying Goodbye To Some Of Our Newer Favorite TV Shows


It’s never easy to say farewell to a beloved TV show, but at least these series will have their stories come full circle with planned final seasons:

Blue Bloods (CBS)

"Pilot" --Tom Selleck stars as Frank Reagan, the New York Chief of Police in BLUE BLOODS premiering, Friday, Sept. 24 (10:00-11:00 PM ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. BLUE BLOODS is a drama about a multi-generational family of cops dedicated to New York City law enforcement.

The police drama following the Reagan family will have its 14th and final season of 14 episodes split into two parts. The first half premieres Feb. 16, with the remainder airing in the fall. “It has been an honor and a privilege to work on a show that not only celebrates the men and women who protect and serve in New York City, but also displayed the importance of family,” says star Tom Selleck.

Bob Hearts Abishola (CBS)

Larry David’s comedy begins its 12th and final season of 10 episodes on Feb. 4. “As Curb comes to an end, I will now have the opportunity to finally shed this ‘Larry David’ persona and become the person God intended me to be — the thoughtful, kind, caring, considerate human being I was until I got derailed by portraying this malignant character,” David says, probably joking.

S.W.A.T. (CBS)

S.W.A.T., a new drama inspired by the television series and the feature film, stars Shemar Moore (pictured) as a locally born and raised S.W.A.T. sergeant newly tasked to run a specialized tactical unit that is the last stop in law enforcement in Los Angeles. This fall, S.W.A.T. will be broadcast Thursdays (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) beginning Nov. 2, after football concludes, on the CBS Television Network.

Hondo (Shemar Moore) and the team will be back for a 13-episode seventh and final season beginning Feb. 16. CBS canceled S.W.A.T. in May, but then reversed that decision a few days later.

Young Sheldon (CBS)

YOUNG SHELDON is a new half-hour, single-camera comedy created by Chuck Lorre and Steven Molaro, that introduces "The Big Bang Theory's" Sheldon Cooper (Iain Armitage), a 9-year-old genius living with his family in East Texas and going to high school.
