While a new spin-off of “NCIS” set in Hawaii may soon see the light of day, CBS has just announced the cancellation of “NCIS: New Orleans”. The third series of the franchise, with Scott Bakula, ends after 7 seasons.
End clap for NCIS investigators: New Orleans. While she is currently developing a third spin-off of the NCIS franchise which would take place in Hawaii, the American channel CBS announced yesterday the cancellation of the series worn by Scott Bakula after 7 seasons. According to Deadline, the final episode – the 16th of season 7 and the 155th of the series – will air on May 16 in the United States. In France, however, it will be necessary to be patient before discovering the end of NCIS: New Orleans since only the first 4 seasons have been broadcast by M6 to date.
Led by Scott Bakula, Vanessa Ferlito, Necar Zadegan, Charles Michael Davis, Rob Kerkovich, Daryl “Chill” Mitchell, Chelsea Field, and CCH Pounder, NCIS: New Orleans has never quite matched popularity and aura of its two “sisters”, NCIS: Special Investigations and NCIS: Los Angeles, although this second spin-off is still broadcast in more than 200 territories around the planet. Also according to Deadline, the first episodes of season 7 gathered on average just over 7 million viewers. Scores that are obviously no longer sufficient for CBS.
NCIS: New Orleans is the first series in the franchise to be canceled since the launch of the parent series in 2003. CBS has not yet commented on the future of NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles. , but everything suggests that they will be respectively renewed for seasons 19 and 13, since the cop show carried by Mark Harmon remains, even today, the most watched fiction program in the United States. But according to the Hollywood Reporter, NCIS, currently broadcasting its eighteenth round of episodes across the Atlantic, could soon come to an end, or experience a major change of course, since Mark Harmon, the interpreter of Gibbs, reportedly expressed the wish not to renew his contract, which expires in May. Discussions are reportedly underway between the channel and the actor, however, with the aim of persuading him to return for a handful of episodes in season 19. In order to operate a handover between Gibbs and a new leader for the team. Washington NCIS?
Alongside the cancellation of NCIS: New Orleans, CBS also announced the discontinuation of the comedy Mom, worn by Allison Janney, after 8 seasons. But also, on a more positive note, the renewal of the sitcoms Bob Hearts Abishola, created by Chuck Lorre (The Big Bang Theory, Mon uncle Charlie), and The Neighborhood, with Max Greenfield (Nexw Girl), which will therefore return to the on the air at the start of the next school year for seasons 3 and 4.
