NCIS: Los Angeles will wrap its network TV run with the season 14 finale this spring, CBS announced Friday.
“For 14 seasons, NCIS: Los Angeles has been a stalwart of our lineup with characters who were a joy to watch,” Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment, said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.
“It’s no surprise this show succeeded as a global franchise. From day one, the cast, producers and crew were amazing Network/Studios 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,” Reisenbach added.
The long-running NCIS spinoff follows Special Agents Sam Hanna (LL Cool J) and Grisha Callen (Chris O’Donnell), who are assigned to the Office of Special Projects, a branch of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service that specializes in undercover assignments.
The series also stars Daniela Ruah, Eric Christian Olsen, Linda Hunt, Medalion Rahimi, Caleb Castille, and Gerald McRaney.
Reisenbach thanked the cast and crew for their time on the series.
“Our crew has grown to be a true family, and their hard work and dedication has been fundamental to our success year after year,” she said. “My deepest gratitude to the cast members, who have brought our characters to life with their impassioned performances — thank you for your talent, professionalism, and continuous enthusiasm. And to our loyal viewers who loved our characters and followed their journeys, thank you. We look forward to delivering an end to the series that is both satisfying and does justice to these beloved characters.”
Following the announcement, LL Cool J took to Instagram to let his followers know the show would be ending.
“After 14 seasons, this is the perfect time to end @ncisla on top of our game!!! I look forward to continuing my fruitful partnership with @cbstv,” he captioned the post. “More exciting announcements and dates ahead!!!”
