Per Collider, NCIS: LA will conclude after 14 seasons with a two-part series finale titled “New Beginnings, Part 1” and “Part 2,” which will air on CBS on May 14 and 21, respectively. The network also released episode details for “New Beginnings, Part 1,” which will showcase the mystery of an agent gone missing and the ATF taking help from the elite NCIS. They will be tasked not only to find the missing agent but also the stolen military-grade weaponry. Details on “Part 2” are being kept under wraps at this time.
“Wrapping up a series is always bittersweet. We were blessed to have 14 seasons together, so bringing it to a satisfying end was extremely challenging after so many years,” said showrunner and executive producer R. Scott Gemmill in an official statement. “Fortunately, CBS was gracious enough to give us an extra episode in order to send off our characters in a way befitting their stories that hopefully, the fans find both satisfying and hopeful.”
The First NCIS Spinoff Comes to an End
NCIS: Los Angeles premiered in September 2009 as the first spinoff series in the NCIS franchise, which initially started out as a spinoff of the legal drama series JAG. The long-running action drama series follows Special Agents Sam Hanna and Grisha Callen, played by LL Cool J and Chris O’Donnell respectively, as they investigate military-related crimes. NCIS: LA has been a solid rating hit for CBS, which allowed it to become the second longest-running show in the franchise after the original NCIS, which was recently renewed for a 21st season in February 2023. NCIS: LA was canceled by CBS in January 2023. This marks the second NCIS show to end after NCIS: New Orleans, which premiered in 2014 and concluded in 2021 after seven seasons.
After 14 seasons and over 300 episodes, NCIS: LA will conclude with a celebratory wrap-up special, which will be hosted by Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and air after “Part 2.” Fans will see interviews from old and current cast members as well as flashbacks to fan-favorite moments and loads of behind-the-scenes material.
In addition to O’Donnell and LL, the current cast of NCIS: Los Angeles includes Daniela Ruah as Special Agent Kensi Blye, Eric Christian Olsen as Special Agent Marty Deeks, Medalion Rahimi as Special Agent Fatima Namazi, Caleb Castille as Special Agent Devin Roundtree and Gerald McRaney as Admiral Hollace Kilbride.
