‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ to Conclude on May 14
NCIS: Los Angeles is the second longest-running show in the NCIS franchise next to the original series, which has been on air since 2003. With the strong run of its sister show, NCIS: Hawaii, and the looming premiere of the spinoff, NCIS: Sydney, the creators knew that it is the perfect time to end LA.
President of CBS Entertainment Amy Reisenbach announced the cancelation on Jan. 20 in a statement to Variety.
“For 14 seasons, NCIS: Los Angeles has been a stalwart of our lineup with characters who were a joy to watch,” she said. “It’s no surprise this show succeeded as a global franchise. From day one, the cast, producers, and crew were amazing network/studio partners, and their teamwork, talent, and spirit vividly came through on the screen. We are so grateful for the collaboration and remarkable run of these treasured members of our CBS family, and plan to give them the big sendoff they and their fans deserve.”
The series only has six more episodes left, and the big finale will air on May 14.
