CBS unveiled its fall schedule Wednesday which includes new editions of “NCIS,” “CSI” and “FBI” and the shift of “NCIS” to Monday.

Series not returning include the comedy “Mom,” which ran for eight seasons; the action drama “NCIS: New Orleans,” which ran for seven seasons; the action-adventure drama “MacGyver,” which ran for five seasons; and the courtroom drama “All Rise,” and the comedy “The Unicorn,” which both ran for two seasons.

Three series that debuted in the 2020-21 season will return for their second seasons — the comedies “B Positive” and “United States of Al” and the reimagined version of “The Equalizer.”

“NCIS,” prime-time television’s most-watched scripted series, will move to 9 p.m. Mondays, preceding “NCIS: Hawai’i,” which stars Vanessa Lachey as the first female Special Agent in Charge of NCIS Pearl Harbor.

“CSI: Vegas,” billed by CBS as the sequel to “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” includes three cast members from the original reprising their roles — William Petersen, Jorja Fox and Wallace Langham.

The shift of “NCIS” from Tuesday allows CBS to fill the night with “FBI” series produced by Dick Wolf, with “FBI: International” airing between “FBI” and “FBI: Most Wanted.”

The new series tells the stories of the bureau’s Prague-based International Fly Team which is responsible for tracking and neutralizing threats against American citizens wherever they may be and whose agents are not allowed to carry guns.

CBS’ other new fall series is “Ghosts,” which stars Rose McIver and Utkarsh Ambudkar as a cheerful freelance journalist and up-and-coming chef who decide to convert a huge rundown country estate they inherited into a bed and breakfast, only to find it is inhabited by the many spirits of deceased residents.

Four episodes “SEAL Team” will air at 10 p.m. Sunday before new episodes of the military drama begin on the Paramount+ streaming service. The police drama “S.W.A.T.” will move from 8 p.m. Friday to replace it. Alternative programming will then air at 8 p.m. Friday.

The CBS fall schedule consists of 13 hours of drama, three hours of comedy and two hours each of news magazines, alternative programming and reruns.

CBS also announced three series it has ordered for midseason:

— “Smallwood,” a comedy based on professional bowler Tom Smallwood’s life;

— “Good Sam,” a medical drama starring Sophia Bush as a hospital’s new chief of surgery after her predecessor — and father — (Jason Isaacs) falls into a coma and later demands to resume his duties; and

— the alternative series “Come Dance With Me,” where exceptionally talented young dancers from across the nation invite one inspirational, untrained family member or other adult who has supported their dance dreams to become their dance partner for the competition.

Here is the CBS fall schedule:

— Monday: “The Neighborhood”; “Bob Loves Abishola”; “NCIS”; “NCIS: Hawai’i”;

— Tuesday: “FBI”; “FBI: International”; “FBI: Most Wanted”;

— Wednesday: “Survivor”; “Tough As Nails”; “CSI: Vegas”;
