CBS announced today that East New York has been given a full season pickup. The network has ordered an additional batch of episodes to extend the drama's freshman run, though the exact number of episodes is not known.

The hour-long procedural premiered earlier this month and is off to a solid start. Its first three episodes have averaged over 7 million viewers, making it Sunday's most-watched new show of the 2022-2023 season, and the #2 most-watched new show overall.

East New York follows Regina Haywood, the newly promoted deputy inspector of East New York, a working-class neighborhood of Brooklyn. She leads a diverse group of officers and detectives, some of whom are reluctant to utilize her creative methods of law enforcement during the midst of social upheaval and the early seeds of gentrification.
