CBS has announced that NCIS: Los Angeles is coming to an end after its current 14th season. On the air since 2009, the first spin-off of the popular 'NCIS' franchise is one of the longest-running scripted primetime shows in the network's history. It has been a consistently strong performer over the course of its run, often garnering some of the highest viewership on broadcast TV.
NCIS: Los Angeles has nine episodes remaining until its series finale, which will air on May 14. When all is said and done, the show will have aired a total of 322 episodes. With its impressive run coming to an end, two other shows in the franchise remain: the mothership 'NCIS,' currently in Season 20, as well as the newest spin-off 'NCIS: Hawai'i.'
This NCIS Crossover was a huge success! After 14 seasons, it’s the perfect time to end @NCISLA on top! I look forward to continuing my partnership with @CBSTVStudios. They invested in our series B round and became a strategic partner with @RockTheBells—more exciting things ahead! pic.twitter.com/AE0JcDa2El— LLCOOLJ (@llcoolj) January 21, 2023
Incredibly sad about the news that @NCISLA won’t be coming back to give you guys another season but man what an amazing accomplishment…14 seasons!— Caleb Castille (@CalebCastille) January 21, 2023
S/o to the best fans & crew in the world! I’m eternally grateful for the opportunity.
Special Agent Devin Rountree signing off.
Aside from that, the quality has gone down - production value and photography is fine, but the writing has seriously declined and the plots of the episodes has seriously declined
A lot of this can be attributed to their whole "citizens with guns are bad", "free speech is bad" etc. and mixed up with all of the "inclusion and diversity" which keeps being an excuse to constantly show that non-white characters are all superior to white characters. The vast majority of the show just wants to preach to me anymore and I'm definitely not interested in that.
So, sad as I am to see it go, I'm going to miss seeing our primary characters, I do believe it is time for the show to end.
This show brought us "Sunshine and Gunpowder", that was inspired writing, now we get mediocre writing.
What they did to the "JAG" narrative was (ie gut it, with a completely unbelievable and overcomplicated narrative, why Harm and Mac were apart). Anything to stop the idea of a JAG 2.0 with them in it. Imagine some kind of JAG/NCIS hybrid, basically Law and Order with a twist. The writers and produces have no imagination.
Linda Hunt leaving, and the endless parade of would be replacements, trying to fill her shoes, has sealed the fate of this series.
No story arc, no conspiracies, G's background finally explained, makes the show become just another cop show.
So sad and about 4 years too late.
It will be interesting to see if NCIS Sydney (Coming later this year) will be a success.
Well to all the cast & crew of NCIS LA live long and prosper
Hopefully NCIS Hawaii learns from Los Angeles and does not go TOO woke. NCIS Hawaii is still entertaining.
Just MY 2 cents, I could be wrong.
Still, it's the passing of a type of series on broadcast TV when broadcast ruled. What I see today on broadcast is producers not even trying any more. It's either some kind of reality show or a rehash of an old series. When the mothership "NCIS" finally goes (and it's also a faint image of its former self), it will be the end of an era.
