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.’
