‘Madam Secretary’ season 3: Return date speculation and more for Tea Leoni series

MadamTonight, the story for “Madam Secretary” is going to conclude for the time being with an hour that is asking many questions about its characters, with one of the primary ones being whether or not Elizabeth McCord (Tea Leoni) ends up serving further in her position of Secretary of State.

We’re going to have a chance to explore this story further in an article at some point over the next 24 hours, so there is no real use to talk extensively on the subject now. Instead, we want to use this time in order to speak further on the show’s long-term future. Many longtime fans may know already that the show is returning for a third season, so there is not anything worth fretting about when it comes to that.

Instead, the larger question here is one as to when the show is going to air. With “The Good Wife” ending this year, we wouldn’t be remotely shocked if the show moved to a different time or there were some other things swapped around on the schedule. CBS’ Sunday hasn’t been strong in the 18-49 demographic for some time, so there could be a little bit of flux.

If the show does stay on Sunday nights in the fall, a reasonable premiere date would more than likely be in either in late September or early October. The former is more likely; the only reason season 2 began in October was because of CBS airing a series finale of “CSI” the week before.
