A sneak peek at the fall primetime lineup on KGMB and KHNL

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK (HawaiiNewsNow) -

CBS and NBC are unveiling a number of new series orders for the 2018-19 television season. 

Here's a sneak peek of what viewers can expect to see on KGMB and KHNL. 

What's coming to CBS / KGMB

Four dramas and three comedies have been added to the 2018-2019 slate.

The next freshman class of shows will join returning veterans like 'The Big Bang Theory' and 'NCIS.' 

With production taking place on Oahu, 'Magnum P.I.' is a modern take on the classic series starring Jay Hernandez as Thomas Magnum.

Like in the original series staring Tom Selleck,  'Magnum P.I.' follows the story of a decorated former Navy SEAL who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator in Hawaii. 

Also coming this fall on CBS, a 'Murphy Brown' revival from the original series creator Diane English and starring Candice Bergen. 

The comedy series return marks the show's 30th anniversary.

'God Friended Me' stars Brandon Micheal Hall in a humorous, uplifting drama about Miles Finer, an outspoken atheist whose life is turned upside down when he receives a friend request on social media from God and unwittingly becomes an agent of change in the lives and destinies of others around him. 

From acclaimed producers Ava DuVernay and Greg Berlanti, 'The Red Line' follows the lives of three vastly different Chicago families whose stories of loss and tragedy intersect in the wake of the mistaken shooting of an African American doctor by a white cop.

'F.B.I.', from Emmy Award winner Dick Wolf and the team behind the "Law & Order" franchise, is a fast-paced drama about the inner workings of the New York office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. These first-class agents, including Special Agent Maggie Bell (Missy Peregrym) and her partner, Special Agent Omar Adom 'OA' Zidan (Zeeko Zaki), bring all their talents, intellect and technical expertise to tenaciously investigate cases of tremendous magnitude, including terrorism, organized crime and counterintelligence, in order to keep New York and the country safe. 

'Welcome to the Neighborhood' is a comedy about what happens when the friendliest guy in the Midwest, moves his family (the Johnsons) to a neighborhood in Los Angeles where not everyone looks like him or appreciates his extreme neighborliness. Cedric the Entertainer stars as Calvin Butler,  the Johnsons' opinionated next door neighbor, who is wary of the newcomers, certain that the Johnsons will disrupt the culture on the block. 

Damon Wayans Jr. and Amber Stevens West will star in a currently untitled comedy about a 30-something happily married couple who begin to reconnect with their younger, cooler selves when Cooper (Felix Mallard), an exuberant young pop star drawn to their super ordinary suburban life, unexpectedly moves in with them. 

'Fam' stars Nina Dobrev and Tone Bell  in a comedy about a woman whose vision of a perfect life with her adoring fiancé and his wonderful family is radically altered when her 16-year old, out-of-control half-sister unexpectedly comes to live with her. 

What's coming to NBC / KHNL 

The cop comedy 'Brooklyn 99' moves to NBC starting next season, the network rescuing the series days after Fox canceled it.

The fact that NBC's sister studio produces '99' swayed peacock executives but fan outrage also helped.

Joining "Brooklyn 99" at mid-season will be a winter edition of 'America's Got Talent'.

A tournament format with past favorites from the U.S. and international winners from around the world.

The medical drama 'New Amsterdam' headlines NBC's new fall series.  Former 'Blacklist' co-star Ryan Eggold plays a doctor in a facility based on New York's famed Bellevue Hospital.

Wednesdays become an all-Chicago night of drama, with 'Chicago Med', "Fire", and 'P.D.' airing back to back to back.

While 'Law and Order SVU' moves to Thursdays  for its record tying 20th season.

One new comedy joins the Thursday schedule, 'I Feel Bad',  about a mom, wife and career woman learning to cope with imperfection.

Summertime frightfest, 'Midnight Texas' joins the fall lineup Fridays following 'Blindspot'.

'The Blacklist' is among the shows back at mid-season, while the fate of cult favorite 'Timeless'  remains undecided for a few more days.

NBC's also has another new drama, 'Manifest', slated for Mondays this fall after 'The Voice'.  

It's about passengers who survive a turbulent flight, only to learn the real turbulence starts after they land.

'Rise' with Oahu's own Aulii Cravalho, 'The Brave' and 'Great News' are among the shows NBC's not picking up for next season.

First-year series 'Good Girls' and 'AP Bio' did get renewed.  They'll be back in 2019.
