CBS’s massively popular procedural NCIS could get another expansion in the near future. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network is currently working on a spinoff series that would be set in Hawaii.
Reportedly, NCIS: New Orleans‘ showrunner Chris Silber and executive producer Jan Nash are set to join the new show in the same capacity. CBS is in the process of hiring a director and writing staff for the pilot episode.
Information about the general plot and cast is currently unavailable, but the details are expected to be revealed once the show gets officially confirmed.
NCIS: Hawaii would serve as the fourth series in the franchise. The original NCIS debuted in 2003, and 18 seasons have aired so far. Season 19 is currently airing.
NCIS: Los Angeles was the first spinoff, debuting in 2009 and starring Chris O’Donnell, Daniela Ruah, and LL Cool J., among others. The show is currently in its 12th season and is expected to be picked up for additional seasons thanks to strong ratings.
Finally, NCIS: New Orleans premiered in 2014, with Scott Bakula serving as the lead. Season seven premiered in November and will serve as the show’s final season.
