The show stars Jay Hernandez in the titular role, a private investigator who fights crime with the assistance of former MI6 agent Juliet Higgins (Perdita Weeks), Marine veteran Orville “Rick” Wright (Zachary Knighton) and Marine veteran and pilot Theodore “T.C.” Calvin (Stephen Hill). The series, which was launched in 2018, is a reboot of the popular 1980s show starring Tom Selleck.
CBS also announced the renewal of “Blue Bloods,” “S.W.A.T.,” “NCIS” and “Bull.”
It also appears that a Hawaii-based version of “NCIS” will become a reality. TVInsider, one of the sources reporting CBS’ programming plans, said a show with a female lead is “in the works.”
