More information to fill the lists for cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012. And last but not least on this reviewing of what seemed to me like a never ending announcement of renewals from CBS. But as always with good news, the more the better.
CBS renewed 48 Hours Mystery for season 25 overall, and an eleventh in its current format.
What is 48 Hours Mystery About? Plot Synopsis
The show drew its name, inspiration and original format from the September 1986 CBS News documentary titled 48 Hours on Crack Street, about the drug crisis plaguing a number of U.S. neighborhoods. The special attracted some 15 million viewers.
Like the original documentary, the series originally focused on showing events occurring within a 48 hour span of time – hence the name. This format was eventually phased out by the early 1990s.
The current format of the documentary primarily deals with real life mysteries and crime stories, again with just one mystery per episode, owing to its single topic per show heritage.
The program is not confined to reporting mysteries; CBS often uses the 48 Hours title or timeslot to present special reports on events, such as a 2006 report on the fifth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks, or coverage of the Virginia Tech massacre in April 2007. However, the relationship between these special programs and the rest of the series is essentially limited to the program’s title.
What do you think? Are you happy CBS renewed 48 Hours Mystery for twenty fifth season?
