CBS Sets Finale Dates for NCIS, Blue Bloods, Mom, & More!

at .

The most inconsistent TV season in recent memory will soon be over.

CBS has firmed up finale dates for a total of 19 series.

The network has announced that NCIS: New Orleans will conclude for good Sunday, May 23.

Fornell and Gibbs Team Up - NCIS

It was canceled earlier this year as the network assesses the future of the NCIS brand, which may or may not mean saying goodbye to NCIS if Mark Harmon decides to quit.

CBS is also prepping a Hawaii-set spinoff which, according to reports, is nearing a series order.

That same night, The Equalizer Season 1 wraps, but fans don't need to freak out:

Saving Another Life - The Equalizer Season 1 Episode 3

The series snagged a Season 2 renewal just a few weeks ago.

Fellow Sunday procedural NCIS: Los Angeles is awaiting word on its future, but the series is a lock to return.

MacGyver's shortened fifth season will conclude Friday, April 30, while Magnum P.I. will follow suit the following week.

One week later makes the end of Blue Bloods Season 11, which will be a two-hour finale.

A Serious Case - Blue Bloods Season 11 Episode 2

Out of those three shows, Blue Bloods is on the bubble. The series remains a hit in the traditional ratings, but older shows are notoriously more expensive to produce.

Given the way Hawaii Five-0 wrapped a year ago, it's possible Blue Bloods could be the next long-running series to get the boot.

On the comedy front, Mom will wrap its eight-season run Thursday, May 13.

The series was cut a few weeks ago and Allison Janney has been open about wanting to continue.

Bonnie Outside at a Candlit Table

In a recent interview with James Corden, the actress conceded that the end date announcement was probably a financial decision.

Like we said, older shows are more expensive.

Young Sheldon and B Positive will also conclude their seasons that night, but a future is not confirmed for either show.

They have both performed well, so it's likely they will both be back.

MeeMaw Gets Involved - Young Sheldon

The Neighborhood and Bob Hearts Abishola will conclude Monday, May 17, but those shows snagged early renewals.

Bull ends the same night, but no word on a renewal. All Rise wraps May 24 and has not been formally picked up.

The latter is on the bubble.

NCIS, FBI, and FBI: Most Wanted will wrap with their current seasons Tuesday, May 25.

Saving Canines - NCIS Season 18 Episode 10

The FBI franchise is eyeing an expansion into international crime, so it's possible CBS could be contemplating a full night of FBI shows.

Dick Wolf's One Chicago universe is dominating the ratings on Wednesdays.
