There are many brilliant shows on Netflix and we’ve given you our top picks of a lot, but here are our top seven CBS series available to stream on Netflix right now. There’s plenty of entertainment to make your evenings better and also lots to look forward to as many shows have been renewed by CBS and could, therefore, be on Netflix in future.
7. Hawaii Five-O
This series is a reboot of the original show which had a total of 12 seasons in the 1960s and 1970s. The reboot of the show was first available in 2010 and has continued to be a big hit on CBS since. The series holds the same ideals as the original but with a modern take. Hawaii Five-O is essentially about a police unit that operates in Hawaii which, if you’ve seen the BBC show Death in Paradise, you might appreciate the difference in location. CBS has renewed the series for an eight season, meaning that the show will be aired on the network later on this year.
Based on the 2012 novel by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge, this series has a total of three seasons. It first aired on CBS in 2015 and the first two seasons are available to watch on Netflix. The series focuses on violent animals that are attacking humans all over the world and the people who seek to investigate the happenings. These aren’t just your average attacks, they become incredibly coordinated and untamed. Follow the Zoologist Jackson Oz and others on their adventure to get to the root of the problem.
5. Blue Bloods
Last month, Netflix US welcomed the seventh season of Blue Bloods to its pool of entertainment. This police procedural drama series focuses on Frank Reagan, who is the New York Police Commissioner, and the Reagan family of police officers. It first debuted in 2010 and has since grown. CBS renewed it this year for an eighth season but for now, there’s the first seven seasons on Netflix US to keep you going until then.
4. Madam Secretary
In a battle between politics and personal life, Dr. Elizabeth McCord must try to fulfil her role as Secretary of State. This political drama currently has two out of three series available on Netflix US, but is unlikely to be added to Netflix UK any time soon. There’s a total of three series, with CBS renewing a fourth earlier this year. One woman in power negotiates worldwide issues after her career as a teacher and CIA analyst. Take a peek at this series if you’re a fan of House of Cards.
3. Criminal Minds
Criminal Minds is one of the longest running shows on CBS and has been praised for the engaging storylines. This isn’t the kind of show that simply solves cases as the team looks into the psychology behind the crimes with the FBI Behaviour Analysis Unit. You’re in luck as there’s plenty of episodes to get stuck into on Netflix, so whether you’re anticipating the next series or haven’t seen any of this fantastic show before, you’ve got lots to keep you entertained. This crime drama was created by Jeff Davis and has already been renewed for a thirteenth season on CBS.
With 14 seasons, NCIS is the longest running scripted TV series. All seasons up to 13 are available to stream on Netflix US, so you’re able to enjoy over 300 episodes. The series follows a team of Major Case Response Team (MCRT) who are the first on a crime scene. They track down terrorists and other high-profile criminals using their expert minds and talents. Season 15 has also already been confirmed by the network, so we’ve still plenty to come and no sign of a slowdown. Hopefully, the 14th season will be available on Netflix US sometime this year.
