The NCIS trifecta is complete. Both NCIS: New Orleans and NCIS: Los Angeles will officially return for sixth and eleventh seasons respectively, says CBS.
The news comes following CBS’ recent renewal of the original NCIS last week, with Kelly Kahl, President of CBS Entertainment commening “Both shows have been key pillars to the CBS schedule for several years. They offer heroic stories, big stars and have attracted a passionate, loyal fan base. We’re excited to have Chris, LL, Scott and these terrific casts back to bring more terrific NCIS stories to viewers in the U.S. and around the world.”
NCIS: New Orleans, starring Scott Bakula, is currently in its fifth season and is averaging almost 11 million viewers each week, while winning its time slot. Meanwhile, NCIS: Los Angeles, currently in its 10th season and starring Chris O’Donnell and LL COOL J, is also among the most-watched dramas on broadcast television and is Sunday’s top scripted series with an average of 10.1 million viewers.
The NCIS trio mark the latest renewals by the network, and will join Young Sheldon, Mom, Criminal Minds, Blue Bloods, FBI, God Friended Me, Magnum P.I. and The Neighborhood on CBS’ 2019/2020 primetime schedule.
