CBS announced today that B Positive has been given a back order of five episodes, bringing its full season total to 18. The comedy premiered a month and a half ago as the network's first new show of the 2020-2021 season.

In a television season light on new fare, the series has performed fairly well through its first five episodes. Critical reception has been generally positive while ratings have been decent in its Thursday night time slot.

B Positive stars Thomas Middleditch as Drew, a therapist and recently-divorced dad in need of a kidney. He finds a possible donor in Gina, an unsophisticated woman from his past. Together, they form an unlikely friendship and start a journey that will greatly impact both of their lives.
