CBS announced Thursday that 18 series have been picked up for next season.

The word came after it was previously announced that "The Big Bang Theory" and "Survivor" had been renewed.

Nine dramas made the cut, including "Blue Bloods," "Criminal Minds," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "Elementary," "Hawaii Five-0," "NCIS," "NCIS: Los Angeles," and "Person of Interest."

Freshmen sitcoms "The Millers" and "Mom" also received pick-ups, along with other comedies "2 Broke Girls," "Two and a Half Men" and "Mike and Molly."

"The Amazing Race," "Undercover Boss," "60 Minutes" and "48 Hours" were also renewed.

The fates of three other programs are still up in the air. There's been no word yet on "Hostages," "Intelligence" or "The Crazy Ones."

Sarah Michelle Gellar of "The Crazy Ones" recently told CBS News, "I'm hoping for a season 2. I think that's where we'll really find ourselves. That's what happened to us with 'Buffy' -- we really found ourselves in season 2."

"Intelligence" fans in particular have been clamoring to find out if Josh Holloway and the rest of the team will be back in the fall. The topic was even recently trending online.
