CBS has set November as fall premiere month, premiering 14 returning scripted series and one new comedy.

Due to the pandemic, the network delayed the returns of the majority of its slate. Now, it will officially kick off Thursday, Nov. 5 with the return of Young Sheldon and Momthe first season without Anna Faris, and the series debut of B Positive.

The half-hour series hails from Chuck Lorre and Marco Pennette, inspired by Pennette's experience as a transplant recipient. It kicks off when Drew (Thomas Middleditch), a therapist and newly divorced dad, is faced with finding a kidney donor when he runs into Gina (Annaleigh Ashford), a rough-around-the-edges woman from his past who volunteers her own. Together, they form an unlikely and life-affirming friendship, as they begin a journey that will forever affect both of their lives. Gabby (Kether Donohue) is Gina’s best friend; Julia (Sara Rue) is Drew’s ex-wife; Maddie (Izzy G.) is Drew and Julia’s teenage daughter; and Eli (Terrence Terrell) is a new friend of Drew’s who is also going through dialysis.

NCIS will also kick off its 18th season on Tuesday, Nov. 17, with the milestone 400th episode airing the week after. The flagship series will serve as a rich lead-in for FBI and FBI: Most Wanted. Beginning Sunday, Nov. 8, it's an all-NCIS lineup with NCIS: Los Angeles and NCIS: New Orleans airing back to back, followed by reruns of fan-favorite NCIS episodes.

Mondays will kick off with The Neighborhood and Bob Hearts Abisholafollowed by the two-part season 2 premiere of the courtroom drama All Rise, starting Nov. 16. A two-hour premiere of S.W.A.T. leads out of The Amazing Race starting Wednesday, Nov. 11.
