CBS has announced that NCIS: Los Angeles, which launched in 2009, will return for its 11th season, while NCIS: New Orleans, which came along in 2014, will be back for a sixth. They still each have a long way to go before they catch up to their parent property's whopping 17th season order, but they're certainly on their way to becoming perpetual procedurals, too.
"Both shows have been key pillars to the CBS schedule for several years," president of CBS Entertainment Kelly Kahl said in a statement. "They offer heroic stories, big stars and have attracted a passionate, loyal fan base. We're excited to have Chris [O'Donnell], LL [Cool J], Scott [Bakula] and these terrific casts back to bring more terrific NCIS stories to viewers in the U.S. and around the world."
NCIS: Los Angeles centers on the Office of Special Projects, the prominent counter-terrorist division of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, and stars Chris O'Donnell, Daniela Ruah, LL Cool J, Barrett Foa, Linda Hunt, Eric Christian Olsen, Renee Felice Smith, and Nia Long.
NCIS: Los Angeles airs Sundays at 9/8c, while NCIS: New Orleans airs on Tuesdays at 9/8c on CBS.
