As we wait for the 2020-2021 season to officially begin, with most return dates delayed due to the pandemic’s effects on production, we’re taking a look at some of the shows that have been around the longest. (For example, there are six that are in double-digit seasons.)

Cast changes are pretty much always inevitable, and in most cases, there have been some additions to the casts of these live-action series entering (or continuing) at least a seventh season. But for some, like Supernatural, Blue Bloods, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, there has been little change. For others, like Law & Order: SVU and NCIS, there are only one or two series regulars still around from the very beginning.
