Hawaii’ Canceled by CBS After 3 Seasons

CBS is shutting down one of its NCIS field offices.

The network has canceled NCIS: Hawai’i after three seasons. The show’s season — and now series — finale is set to air May 6.

The series, which stars Vanessa Lachey and added former NCIS: Los Angeles star LL Cool J to its cast this season, will likely end up as the most watched show to be canceled this season — topping two other canceled CBS shows, CSI: Vegas and So Help Me Todd. NCIS: Hawai’i is averaging about 7.8 million viewers in Nielsen’s seven-day linear ratings this season, and it hits 10 million viewers over 35 days of cross-platform viewing.

Those numbers would make for easy renewals most anyplace else, but they put NCIS: Hawai’i only in the middle of the pack at CBS. The network will also introduce a new NCIS series in the 2024-25 season, a prequel subtitled Origins that follows a younger version of Leroy Jethro Gibbs (played by Austin Stowell). Flagship NCIS and the newest spinoff, NCIS: Sydney, are also set to return. (Paramount+ has also greenlit another NCIS-verse series that will see Cote de Pablo and Michael Weatherly reprise their roles from the original series.)

At three seasons and 54 episodes, NCIS: Hawai’i will have the shortest run of any series in the franchise so far (excluding the 1-year-old Sydney). The end of the show will also mean CBS won’t be filming a show in the state of Hawaii for the first time since 2010: NCIS: Hawai’i followed Hawaii Five-0 and Magnum P.I. in the Aloha State.

NCIS: Hawai’i comes from CBS Studios and also stars Alex Tarrant, Noah Mills, Yasmine Al-Bustami, Jason Antoon, Tori Anderson and Kian Talan. Matt Bosack, Jan Nash, Christopher Silber and Larry Teng are the executive producers.

With the cancellation, CBS has now made decisions on all of its scripted series. Keep track of every network cancellation, renewal and new series order with THR’s broadcast scorecard.
