CBS has opted not to renew the Chuck Lorre-produced comedy series B Positive for a third season, Deadline has learned. The decision follows the cancellation last night of another Lorre-produced sophomore CBS comedy series, United States Of Al. Both had been heavily on the bubble but, given Lorre’s standing as the network’s top comedy producer of the last two decades, there was an expectation that at least one of the two shows may make the cut for next season.
CBS has made three series pick ups for the 2020-2021 season. On the drama side, CBS has ordered the Equalizer reboot starring Queen Latifah and Clarice, which follows Clarice Starling in the aftermath of The Silence of the Lambs. On the comedy side, the network has picked up the multi-cam B Positive, which hails from Chuck Lorre.
