Premiere dates for two of the most popular dramas on CBS have finally been announced. 

Yes, we're talking about Elementary and Code Black here.

Thankfully, Elementary has dodged the dreaded Sunday night timeslot this time around and will instead unspool its sixth season on Monday nights at 10/9c starting April 30. 

The show will take over from Scorpion which wraps its season on April 23. Elementary was given a surprise renewal last year from CBS after continued erosion in the ratings.

The move was said to be down to the money the series brings with various syndication deals. In short, the show is said to turn in a big profit for CBS. 

A vote of confidence from CBS came in November when the network increased the show's order from 13 episodes to 21 for Season 6. 

Elementary Season 5 concluded with Sherlock hallucinating conversations with his deceased mother, while Joan discovered the severity of her partner's condition. 

Will the show be able to put up a fight on Monday nights? Time will tell.

Meanwhile, Code Black will return Wednesday, May 2 at 10/9c. That's a late premiere date for the show, but at least fans can take solace in knowing the series is definitely coming back. 

Code Black Season 2 concluded in February 2017, so it means fans will have gone fifteen months without a fresh episode. That's a long time!

The show's official Twitter account broke the news, and it was accompanied by the following teaser:

The series has added Moon Bloodgood (Falling Skies) as paramedic Rox Valenzuela and Tyler Perez (Scream) as a first-year resident named Diego. 

Also, Melanie Chandra was let go from the series after her contract was not picked up.
