The fans of “NCIS” might be interested in knowing that the cast isn’t going to be staying in Washington, DC for the upcoming season. While many fans know that the majority of murders and crimes solved by the task force is usually in and around the area, it appears that the cast in the new CBS show “NCIS: New Orleans” will need some help too. According to Entertainment Weekly on Friday, there is talk that most of the cast will head to New Orleans.
As with any crossover, the idea is to bring more viewers to the new show. Popular stars often will capture the attention that typically wouldn’t be given by fans who don’t find the idea worthy of watching. One story line that was rumored involves Michael Weatherly, Pauley Perrette, and David McCallum all partaking in the new show somehow. A road trip for the cast might be good for the show based in New Orleans, but it also indicated that the show needs help before even getting started.
The popularity of “NCIS” definitely has fans desperate in finding out what the original cast is filming. According to Christian Post on Sunday, NFL player Tony Gonzalez will be joining Leroy Jethro Gibbs in the NCIS office for a few episodes as well. The chance to see new folks in the original show of the series is always welcome by the fans and what will be interesting is to see how this changes the dynamics of the working relationship of the characters.
The “NCIS” franchise has offered up crime solving for many seasons and returns to CBS this fall to once again give people a reason to watch. One of the best crime shows on TV, the cast offers up an entertaining hour of television and people can hardly see what comes next on the series. Hopefully, the cast won’t be in New Orleans too long as the fans are either going to like or hate the spinoff. And the “NCIS” show shouldn't be made to carry the New Orleans show to success.
