Well, finally the wait is over!
On Monday, CBS has announced the premiere date for Life In Pieces. The date is set for Thursday, April 18, TVLine has learned.
The fourth season comedy will kick off with two episodes, airing at 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm; before settling into it's regular 9:30 pm time slot on Thursday, April 25. That time slot is currently airing Niva Dobrev's hit comedy Fam; which will wrap up its Season 1 run by that time.
Season four describes that the Short family "welcomes a few new family members and weathers an unexpected health crisis" in the new episodes. And that "some long-hidden secrets are revealed in an unexpected way."
Back in August, TVLine reported exclusively that Joey King (the real-life sister of Hunter King, aka Life in Pieces' Clementine) will recur in Season 4 as Morgan, a pregnant 17-year-old who plans to place her baby with adoptive parents Math (Thomas Sadoski) and Colleen (Angelique Cabral).
Life In Pieces also stats Dianne Wiest, James Brolin, Zoe Lister0Jones, Colin Hanks, Betsy Brandt, Dan Bakkedahl, Niail Cummingham, Holly J. Barrett,, and Giselle Eisenberg.
I'm literally over the moon about the news. I have been thinking that CBS would air this episode in the summer; which would even worry me even more. Life in Pieces is, to me, the best comedy on CBS right now. From the beginning, from the time I had heard of the show and watching the trailer, it grabbed my attention and was hooked. Now I can't wait to see The Short family again, and hopefully, there will be a season five.
