‘NCIS: Hawai’i’ Showrunners Hint at Special Crossover With Canceled ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ Series

by Madison Miller

While fans of “NCIS: New Orleans” are forced to say goodbye to the cast and crime in Sin City, there may be a glimmer of hope after all.

“NCIS: New Orleans” is ending after seven seasons. The show starred Scott Bakula, Charles Micheal Davis, Chelsea Field, CCH Pounder, Necar Zadegan, and Vanessa Ferlito.

The mothership series is living to tell a 19th season. “NCIS: Los Angeles” is gearing up for the 13th season.

Possible ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ and ‘NCIS: Hawai’i’ Crossover

While one story is ending for the “NCIS” universe, another is beginning. “NCIS: Hawai’i” will explore the crime and paradise of an all-new cast of agents in Hawaii.

The show will be coming to CBS later this year. Fans, and even some former cast members, are hoping to see a crossover happen at some point during the series.

According to TV Insider, the team from “NCIS: Hawai’i” is possibly anticipating following a specific ongoing tradition. That is, the team will appear in an episode of “NCIS” before parting ways into their own series.

Beyond that, we may even see an epic appearance from some of the favorites from “NCIS: New Orleans” in Hawaii. When asked about whether fans will ever hear about the New Orleans team again, executive producer Christopher Silber had a bit of insight to give. Namely, that a crossover might be written into the script.

“Never say never … I’ll be a hundred percent honest with you. We are happy for all crossovers. It’s fun. I was fortunate enough to be involved in the NOLA and mothership crossovers the couple of times we did it. I know the shows like it, the writers like it, the actors like it, and the audiences like it,” Silber said.

It wouldn’t be the first time fans have seen a crossover on the show. According to CBS, there have been a total of 25 different epic crossovers on the show.

One of the most memorable is when “NCIS: Los Angeles” gets an introduction. The episode is “Legend” and “Legend: Pt II.” It was a two-part premiere. Special Agents Leroy Jethro Gibbs and Timothy McGee traveled to the Office of Special Projects in L.A. A marine is killed. The team works with the future cast of “NCIS: Los Angeles” to put to rest a terrorist cell that has started in the City of Angels.

Another popular crossover involved Pauley Perrette, or Abby Sciuto, on “NCIS.” The “NCIS: Los Angeles” team asks Abby to help with a case in which a scientist was jet-skiing and killed by a sniper. The killer is thought to be an assassin that the team has been trying to track down for years. The episode was called “Killshot.”

“NCIS: New Orleans” was introduced on “NCIS” in a two-part special called “Crescent City Pt. 1″ and “Crescent City: Pt. II.” Gibbs and Bishop travel to New Orleans and work alongside Dwayne Cassius Pride. Together, they track down the Privilege Killer copycat.

Certainly, both “NCIS” writers and producers, as well as fans, love a good crossover event. It helps unify the whole franchise. It’s unclear if this crossover is a for sure thing, however.
