NCIS: New Orleans is coming to an end after seven seasons. The series finale will air either tonight or Monday night, depending on CBS’s schedule. This revelation shocked many people. Fans of the show are mourning the loss of some of their favorite characters. At the same time. However, no one was more shocked by the decision than Scott Bakula. The announcement took the series’ lead by surprise. He is trying to make the best of it. At the same time, he is showing gratitude to those who watched the series.
Kelly Kahl, the president of CBS Entertainment, recently discussed the reason NCIS: New Orleans is coming to an end. According to Kahl, the series was not pulling the numbers it once did. This led the network to cancel the show. This was something that they thought long and hard about. In the end, though, they had to do what they felt was best for their overall schedule. Bakula, on the other hand, was shocked by the revelation saying, “This being the last season, going out in the middle of a pandemic, I didn’t think it was going to happen.”
The NCIS: New Orleans star took to social media last night to speak directly to his fans. In the post, he keeps a stiff upper lip. Instead of mourning the loss of the series, he celebrates the time they had on the show. At the same time, he acknowledges how much the fans mean to him and the rest of the cast.

Scott Bakula Addresses NCIS: New Orleans Fans
In the post, Scott Bakula addresses the fans of NCIS: New Orleans directly. He starts by thanking them for sticking with the series for the last seven years. He says that the show has been a journey with plenty of ups and downs. However, he assures everyone that it was worth it. About the finale, Bakula says, “I am very excited for you to see the finale, as we were able to bring the soul of the city back to the screen after a difficult year of restrictions and COVID challenges.”
The NCIS: New Orleans star goes on to thank the Crescent City as well as all the musicians that have enriched the show with their talents.
Bakula also notes that the NCIS: New Orleans finale may not air at its normal time. This is because CBS is running golf coverage. He asks fans to tune in, just in case. The scheduling decision, he says, will be a last-minute one. If the finale does not air tonight, it will air Monday night after the All Rise finale.
