Grace Higgins | January 11th, 2019

CBS announced that it’s ending the longest scripted TV show currently airing after 15 seasons. The network announced that the show will get a final condensed season of 10 episodes. The crew and actors are currently in production filming the finale episode of season 14. The show will be doing a continuous production schedule so that the final season can run between 2019 and 2020. The show and it’s star actor Joe Mantegua will close out the show after filming 325 episodes, which will place the show in the top 20 for most TV episodes.

Amy Reisenbach the Executive Vice President of CBS said, “It is the quintessential CBS hit. We are so proud to have aired it. It speaks to everything we do best, which is air quality television. It’s been successful not only on air but online and in syndication.” The show has consistently done very well in reruns on basic cable and has done extremely well on Netflix.” The decisions to give the show a 14th and 15th final season was made last spring. It was up in the air until the producers and CBS officials decided the show needed a 15th season to give ‘the show a proper send off.’

The season 14 finale, ‘spoiler alert’, will feature a wedding for the show’s lead, David Rossi played by Mantegua. He will marrying his third ex-wife again, the character played by Gail O’Grady. California is facing heavy rain in the forecast, so the location for the wedding scenes is up in the air right now according to a show source. The final 15th season, will feature a two part opener, and will follow more of a sequence than past seasons have. Erica Messer an executive producer on ‘CM’ said ‘the final season will feature several memorable villains from the previous 14 seasons making a special appearances’
