CBS Renews ‘NCIS’ for 11th season


On Friday, CBS has announced that NCIS has been renewed for a 11th season, as star and executive producer Mark Harmon also extends his contract.

Created by Donald P. Bellisario, NCIS is the spin-off of the long-running military courtroom drama JAG: centering on a team of federal agents investigating crimes in the military.

On the air since 2003, NCIS has quietly been building an audience to become the #1 show on television. The show’s growing popularity led to NCIS: Los Angeles in 2009 with Chris O’Donnell and LL Cool J as undercover agents for the Office of Special Projects (OSP). The spin-off was created by NCIS executive producer Shane Brennan, and there are possible plans for a third NCIS with a two-part episode of NCIS: LA serving as a backdoor pilot focusing on a mobile team traveling across America investigating crimes; the episode will probably air sometime this spring.

NCIS airs Tuesdays at 8pm on CBS.
