CBS announced today that NCIS has been renewed for Season 22. The news comes midway through the flagship naval procedural's 21st season, which at 10 episodes is its shortest to date due to last year's writers strike.

On the air since 2003, the show is one of CBS' most successful series of all-time, ranking as the longest-running drama currently on the network. It has two spin-offs on the air, 'NCIS: Hawai'i' and 'NCIS: Sydney,' as well as upcoming 'NCIS: Origins' which premieres next season.

Originating from a concept and characters that were initially introduced in a two-part episode of the CBS series 'JAG,' NCIS was originally referred to as 'Navy NCIS' in its first season. The series follows the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, which is the primary law enforcement and counter-intelligence arm of the United States Department of the Navy. Together, the team works in high-stress situations while dealing with often-complex and always-amusing personal dynamics.

Look for Season 22 of NCIS as part of the 2024-2025 television season this fall.
