CBS ZOO Season 3 Confirmed!

CBS announced they had renewed Zoo Season 3 and it is set to premiere this upcoming Thursday, June 29, 2017, at 10:00 pm ET. Zoo Season 2 left us at a fitting end, and I cannot wait to see where the story continues even though we lost so many characters. James Wolk, Kristen Connolly, and Nonso Anozie star in Zoo Season 3.

Press Release: CBS today announced its summer schedule, including the new event series SALVATION, the new live-action game show CANDY CRUSH, the third season of ZOO, based on James Patterson’s #1 bestselling novel, and the return of the summer sensation BIG BROTHER.

BIG BROTHER, hosted by Julie Chen, will once again have three weekly episodes. The hit reality series debuts with a special two-hour premiere on Wednesday, June 28 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), followed by the Thursday broadcast on June 29 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), Sunday’s installment on July 2 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), and its regular Wednesday time period on July 5 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT). Last summer, all three editions ranked among the summer’s top 10 broadcasts in adults 18-49, adults 18-34 and adults 25-54.

ZOO, last summer’s #2 scripted series, returns for its third season on Thursday, June 29 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT). In season three, the year is 2027 and the world has reached a tipping point: as the human population continues to dwindle due to the sterility problem, an equally devastating threat rises in the form of "the hybrids," an army of unstoppable lab-made creatures, hell-bent on destroying Mankind.

CANDY CRUSH, the new live action game show based on the globally renowned mobile game franchise premieres Sunday, July 9 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT). The game that has become a worldwide phenomenon comes to life as teams of two people use their wits and physical agility to compete on enormous, interactive game boards featuring next generation technology to conquer CANDY CRUSH and be crowned the champions.

The new suspense thriller SALVATION premieres Wednesday, July 12 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT). The series centers on tech superstar Darius Tanz (Santiago Cabrera) and MIT grad student Liam Cole (Charlie Rowe), who bring Pentagon official Grace Barrows (Jennifer Finnigan) a staggering discovery - that an asteroid is just six months away from colliding with Earth.


BIG BROTHER follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with 87 HD cameras and more than 100 microphones, recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week, someone will be voted out of the house, with the last remaining Houseguest receiving the grand prize of $500,000. BIG BROTHER is produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment, in association with Endemol Shine North America.
