The orders bring Man With A Plan and Great Indoors‘ first seasons to 19 episodes (billed as ‘full seasons’ by CBS due to their late premieres) and Code Black Season 2 to 16 episodes. The extensions are shy of the full 22-episode orders that would have represented a major sign of confidence, but importantly keep the shows in contention for renewal.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the cancel/renew status of Man With A Plan/The Great Indoors Season 2 and Code Black Season 3…
