CBS has requested a full-season order for the premiere season of "Limitless," bringing the episode count up from nine to twenty-two (via Variety).
“Limitless” follows Brian Sinclar (Jake McDorman) as he discovers the power of the drug NZT, and is coerced into using his newfound abilities to solve cases for the FBI. Fueled now with a steady supply of NZT that enables him to use 100% of his brain capacity, Brian is more effective than all of the FBI agents combined. However, unknown to the FBI, Sinclar has a clandestine relationship with Cooper’s Morra, who has plans for his new protege.
The series also stars “Dexter’s” Jennifer Carpenter, Hill Harper and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio. “The Amazing Spider-Man’s” Marc Webb directed the pilot.
"Limitless" airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
