Press release from CBS, March 26, 2019:
CBS today announced premiere dates for drama series airing this summer, including the new action-adventure series BLOOD & TREASURE; the seventh and final season of the modern day Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson drama, ELEMENTARY; and the second season of INSTINCT, starring Alan Cumming and Bojana Novakovic.
The new action-adventure series BLOOD & TREASURE premieres with a special two-hour episode Tuesday, May 21 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT), following the season finale of NCIS (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT). The NCIS: NEW ORLEANS season finale moves up one week to Tuesday, May 14 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT). BLOOD & TREASURE airs in its regular time period beginning Tuesday, May 28 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT). The serialized drama stars Matt Barr and Sofia Pernas as a brilliant antiquities expert and a cunning art thief, respectively, who team up to catch a ruthless terrorist who funds his attacks through stolen treasure. As they crisscross the globe hunting their target, they unexpectedly find themselves at the center of a 2,000-year-old battle for the cradle of civilization.
ELEMENTARY begins its farewell season Thursday, May 23 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT). In season seven, Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson’s (Lucy Liu) new careers as consultants for Scotland Yard are disrupted by news that a member of their inner circle has been gravely wounded in the United States. As Holmes’ stateside legal trouble – the result of a confession to a murder he didn’t commit – threatens to keep them from returning to New York, their greatest foe to date, tech billionaire Odin Reichenbach (James Frain), waits on the horizon to test their limits.
INSTINCT returns for its second season Sunday, June 16 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT). In season two, NYPD consultant Dylan Reinhart (Alan Cumming) is reinstated after being put on leave, just in time to join his partner, NYPD detective Lizzie Needham (Bojana Novakovic), on their new case, the “Sleeping Beauty Killer.” During its freshman season, INSTINCT reached nearly 9 million viewers each week.
Additional summer premiere dates will be announced shortly.
