‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ Showrunner Says Ending Show is ‘in the Back of our Mind’

by Taylor Cunningham

We heard a little inside information about the fate of NCIS: Los Angeles. And we have both good and bad news for you.

With 13 seasons of NCIS: Los Angeles on the books, a lot of fans are worried that the series will come to an end soon. And Matt Web Mitovich touched on the subject in his most recent installment of Matt’s Inside Line.

Apparently, people began to chatter about a “final season” shortly after the series was renewed last year. But showrunner R. Scott Gemmill never gave a formal statement about the speculation. Meaning he never outright answered any questions about ending NCIS: Los Angeles.

Gemmill did, however, say that the series finale is in the back of his mind, which is the bad news. But, the good news is that he hopes to tell everyone when the show is in its final season and properly end the story. He doesn’t plan on letting the show end abruptly after airing a cliffhanger season finale like so many series have done in the past.

“We sort of always have [the finale] in the back of our mind,” he said last year. “[But] I will hope to get a heads-up if that is the case, just so that we can go out with an episode, or a bunch of episodes, that really tie up things and send our characters into the future in a way that makes everyone happy.”

As of now, Gemmill has no idea how many seasons are left for Callen and Hanna’s division. And CBS hasn’t shared its plans for the series with him either.

“We’ll just have to wait and see,” he added. “If there is someone that knows, they’re not telling me.”

‘NCIS: Los Angeles’: What Daniela Ruah Considers ‘Funnest’ Days on Set

NCIS: Los Angeles star Daniela Ruah considers her castmates a second family. And her most memorable days on set are when everyone is together.

Daniela Ruah has been playing Kensi Blye on CBS’s long-running crime drama since the series premiered in 2009. But despite all her years working on the show, she hasn’t experienced many days where the entire cast was together at the same time.

NCIS: Los Angeles tends to follow one or two storylines at a time, so there are very few episodes that showcase every single character. And Ruah wishes that wasn’t the case because she loves getting everyone together. In a 2015 interview with PEP.ph, she said that the actors have an incredible bond. And she loves filming with everyone.

“I think the funnest days are when everybody is there, when the whole cast is there, when we’re shooting the scenes, like in the bullpen. The way we bond is when they’re moving the cameras around, or when we have a few minutes break when they’re doing something technical,”
