CBS, as expected, has greenlit the next series in its “NCIS” franchise, “NCIS: Hawaii” from CBS Studios. “NCIS: Hawaii”, which has not been cast yet, will follow the first female special agent in charge at NCIS Pearl Harbor as she and her team balance duty to family and country while investigating cases involving military personnel, national security and the secrets of the island. “NCIS: New Orleans” showrunner Chris Silber will segue to the new show, writing and executive producing with fellow “New Orleans” veteran Jan Nash and Matt Bosack (“SEAL Team”). Larry Teng (“Nancy Drew”) will direct and exec produce.
“NCIS: Los Angeles,” meanwhile, has been renewed for a 13th season, joining returning parent “NCIS” (which heads into season 19). But “NCIS: New Orleans”, as previously announced, is concluding on May 9 after seven seasons (and 153 episodes).
