NCIS: LA fans were devastated to learn that the popular cr1me drama, which is a spin-off of the original long-running NCIS drama, would be ending after 14 seasons.
Many fans and characters have expressed their sadness at the news, but many are wondering why CBS decided to end the show. Here is what we know…
CBS has not stated why NCIS: LA will be cancelled, but reports suggest that it could be due to budget constraints. NCIS and its spin-off show, NCIS: Hawai’i, are still on the air.
According to Deadline, “the cancellation of a long-running drama with big-name leads filming in Los Angeles should not come as a surprise given the large price tag involved, especially at a time when networks across the board are looking to cut their spending.”
After 14 seasons, the show is coming to an end.
Meanwhile, CBS issued an official statement to announce the news. “From Day 1, the cast, producers, and crew were amazing Network/Studios partners, and their teamwork, talent, and spirit vividly came through on the screen,” said Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment.
“We are so grateful for the collaboration and extraordinary run of these treasured members of our CBS family,” she continued, “and plan to give them the big sendoff they and their fans deserve.”
The NCIS franchise is extremely popular among fans.
A statement about how the show would end was also released. “Our crew has grown to be a true family, and their hard work and dedication has been fundamental to our success year after year,” said executive producer R. Scott Gemmill.
“Thank you to our devoted viewers who adored our characters and followed their adventures. We are excited to bring the series to a close that is both satisfying and true to these beloved characters.”
