The political drama will be back for 2018-2019.
April 18, 2018
CBS announced today that Madam Secretary has been renewed for a fifth season. The political drama, which stars Téa Leoni as the Secretary of State, has seen its ratings decline considerably the past few years but has remained a Sunday night staple nevertheless.
Look for Season 5 of Madam Secretary this fall.

Great show that often seems to parallel Trump's antics and highlights the current administration's incompetence. They do not always solve the problem at hand but do a moral vision that is lacking today.

OK show, Tea Leoni is the bright spot and handles the continual lib preachiness of her roles dialogue. The children are oh so sweet and the rest of the cast balance each other. The new female role added in 2017-18 season is irritating and a bad fit. The geopolitical situations that arise each season would normally occur over maybe 1000 yrs of history but to keep the show suspenseful must occur constantly. Of course the show partly tries to reflect today’s political headlines and clearly leans left. Also, of course, the show gives the one side only version of the truth as MSM presents. Not anyone on the right to give the show spice or reflection. Her husband began as a vehicle for that area but the shows writer caved. That is why ratings are steadily lower. Teas role has evolved from an interesting multilayered woman of intelligence, wit, vision, wisdom, strength, character and understanding in the 1st Season to a haranging, preachy, depressed, whiner by the 4th. The best quality of a wonderful witty sense of humor was slowly smothered out which smothered the strength from her character. It also wounded the soul of the show eventually killing it.

Amazing show, and cannot praise it enough. I look foward to next season, and more to come!

We are new to watching because we miss Designated Survivor which will be off until next season. We watch 2 each night to catch up. WOW! what a great cast and show.

Superb show with great cast and intelligent writing. Looking forward to next season. It's also helpful that the two central characters are romantically involved.

I was worried that it might have been cancelled after last night's story line - for a minute it was so final. Grateful that it wasn't. Next year's season will be great.

After last night's season finale, which was unbelievable but very real, I thought they had been cancelled because of the way it ended. I am grateful that it hasn't. I can't wait for next season to see her run for President. Great storyline.

Madam Secretary is an amazing show that combines relative world situations with the personal lives of powerful people. It is informative and entertaining with an awesome cast. Please keep this show going.

I was addicted to West Wing and I am addicted to Madame Secretary. My #1 show. Never disappoints. Great cast. Tightly written. Complicated plots squeezed into 42 minutes.
Writing stays very current with real life, often within weeks of current events. Writers must work 24/7. Criticism: Tea Leoni should not always be wearing a black bra under a semi-sheer white blouse. Change the bra or change the blouse.

Well written and creatively shot . Maybe their ratings wouldn’t suffer if they didn’t constantly have varied start times thanks to live sports programming. What if they made Sunday/Thursday night shows available “On Demand” at their actual air times during the Football season? I truly believe the younger audiences are not going to stand for networks scheduled air times much longer (like we grew up with for decades.) They want to watch on their schedule and occasionally binge so why not experiment a bit with Sundays line up? ...and actually make a show available at its regularly scheduled time...remember Elementary? A casualty to Thursday game night it has finally started its seasons run. Best of luck to Madam Secretary!
