CBS announced today, March 13, that they are renewing "NCIS" and it's spinoff "NCIS: Los Angeles" for another season. Fans should not be shocked since "NCIS" is the highest ranking show on television in 2011-2012 and also that the station recently ordered yet another spinoff titled "NCIS:New Orleans".
"NCIS" will be ending it's eleventh season on March 25 and "NCIS: LOs Angeles" will be ending its fifth season on April 8.
There was some doubt among fans as to the show's future when Cote de Pablo did not return this season but it just goes to prove that its the strong stories as well as the characters that make this show a hit. When CBS replaced de Pablo with Emily Wickersham there was a lot of hesitation but fans warmed up to her quick. She brought in a youthful and young blood aspect to the show. She quirky and geeky and super smart. She isn't as indestructable as Ziva or as compassionate as Kate but she really has her own niche.
"NCIS:Los Angels" even saw a lot of changes with the full circle and recognition on Kenzie and Deeks affection for each other only to have them torn apart again and fans holding their breathe for each moment that the two may be able to reconnect.
This fall there is also set to be another spin off titled, "NCIS: New Orleans". The show is set in New Orleans but the territory that they will be covering will be from Pensacola, Fla. to the Texas panhandle. The story is supposed to center on navy crews hitting the big easy and getting into lots of fun, music, food, and trouble.
The series will star Scott Bakula as Special Agent Dwayne Cassius Pride, Paige Turco as his wife Linda, Lucas Black as Special Agent Christopher Lasalle, Zoe McLellan as Special Agent Meredith "Merri" Brody and C. C. H. Pounder as Dr. Loretta Wade/
