NCIS: New Orleans Canceled
CBS has just announced they are wrapping up the beloved series NCIS: New Orleans. The current season will end the series entirely with its May 16th finale that will be the 155th episode.
Treasured actor Scott Bakula has starred in the series since its beginning. Deadline reported that Scott stated, "Sad to end our love affair with this phenomenal city but so grateful for all the friends we made along the way. I will miss the music. Big thank you to CBS for seven years."
President of CBS Entertainment, Kelly Kahl told Deadline, "From the start, NCIS: New Orleans was able to distinguish itself with its New Orleans authenticity. From the colors and music to the vibrancy and stories you can only find in the Big Easy. Thanks to the amazing talents of the producers, writers, cast and crew, NOLA has played a key role on our schedule. We're pleased to give it a big sendoff and that viewers will have the opportunity to say goodbye to the favorite characters as the final season wraps."
Executive producers Jan Nash and Christopher Silber said, "It has been our sincere pleasure and honor to work on this show with this incredible cast and crew for over 150 episodes. As disappointed as we are to see NOLA end, we couldn't be prouder of the work we've done and are grateful to the spectacular and resilient Crescent City that embraced us for seven wonderful years."
Both Nash and Silber are tied to the new NCIS spin-off NCIS: Hawaii as writers and producers of the new show. NCIS: Los Angeles had a crossover episode in the past with Hawaii Five-0 and the island's productions sets are available for CBS to take over.
