Blood & Treasure
This all-new action-adventure series debuts with a special two-hour episode on Tuesday, May 21 at 9/8c following the 16th season finale of NCIS at 8/7c.

Blood & Treasure centers on a brilliant antiquities expert, Danny (Matt Barr), and a cunning art thief, Lexi (Sofia Pernas), who team up to catch a ruthless terrorist who funds his attacks through stolen treasure.

As they crisscross the globe hunting their target, they unexpectedly find themselves in the center of a 2,000-year-old battle for the cradle of civilization.

Returning for its seventh and final season, Elementary premieres on Thursday, May 23 at 10/9c.

In season seven, Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson's (Lucy Liu) new careers as consultants for Scotland Yard are disrupted by news that a member of their inner circle has been gravely wounded in the United States.

Holmes' stateside legal trouble—the result of a confession to a murder he didn't commit—threatens to keep them from returning to New York. Meanwhile, their greatest foe to date, tech billionaire Odin Reichenbach (James Frain), waits on the horizon to test their limits.

Professor—and ex-CIA agent—Dr. Dylan Reinhart (Alan Cumming) returns for a summer of serial-killer sleuthing with NYPD detective Lizzie Needham (Bojana Novakovic) when Instinct's second season premieres Sunday, June 30 at 9/8c.

In season two, Dr. Reinhart is reinstated as an NYPD consultant after being put on leave, just in time to join his partner, Detective Needham, on their new case, the "Sleeping Beauty Killer."
