« It has been a real pleasure and honor to work on this series and with this incredible cast and crew for more than 150 episodes, » say executive producers Christopher Silber and Jan Nash. « Despite how disappointed we are to see the end of ‘NCIS: New Orleans,’ We could not be more proud of the work we have done and we are grateful to the spectacular and resilient City of the Crescent who adopted us for seven wonderful years. «
The ‘NCIS’ franchise is one of the cornerstones of CBS, which to date consists of ‘NCIS: New Orleans’, ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ and ‘NCIS’, the mother series. The latter still one of the most watched series on television after eighteen seasons. The current season has an average of 9.6 million viewers per episode only taking into account the live broadcast and the delayed broadcast of the same day. The New Orleans spin-off, however, draws a not inconsiderable 7.06 million viewers.
A new location
The news of the end of the series comes a day after it was published that the chain was developing a new spin-off of the ‘NCIS’ franchise set in Hawaii with Silber and Nash as main managers and with Matt bosack (‘SEAL Team’) as a screenwriter. The chain would have chosen the Hawaii archipelago as its location because there it is much easier to shoot compared to other places in the United States in which the pandemic is more difficult to control and because they can take advantage of the infrastructure they used to ‘Hawaii 5.0‘and which he now uses’Magnum‘.
