NCIS: Sydney: What to know about the new TV show

Only a few details about NCIS: Sydney are known so far. It was announced in a new CBS investors presentation, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The new series will stream on Paramount+ as the service expands to Australia. So it doesn't sound like the show will be on CBS, like the other NCIS series.

As for the talent: Shane Brennan, the Australian-born creator of NCIS: LA, is behind the new show. They are expected to fill out the cast with Australian stars and shoot on location in Australia.

So, it's an exciting new addition to the NCIS franchise next year. The franchise currently airs NCIS, NCIS: LA, and NCIS: Hawaii on CBS, after NCIS: New Orleans concluded last year.

On the newest series, NCIS: Hawaii, Vanessa Lachey made history as the franchise's first-ever female team leader. More history is coming with the first international NCIS next year.

For the Australian twist on NCIS, it sounds like TV fans will need to get onto the Paramount+ streaming service. But stay tuned for news ahead of the 2023 premiere.
