The fictitious NCIS unit in New Orleans is the subject of the action-drama series ‘NCIS: New Orleans,’ created by Gary Glasberg.
The cop drama, which premiered on September 23, 2014, is the NCIS franchise’s third installment. Despite receiving mixed reviews throughout the years, there are seven show seasons.
While the critics praised Scott Bakula’s portrayal of Pride and the picturesque location of New Orleans, they have also voiced fair issues around stereotyping and the series’ formulaic approach.
One cannot but compare the show to ‘NCIS’ and ‘NCIS: Los Angeles,’ which have garnered a far more positive reviews than the New Orleans installment.
However, ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ has amassed a devoted fan base that eagerly awaits news on the eighth season. Will there be a season eight? Let’s discover!
NCIS New Orleans Season 8 Release Date
Season 8 of NCIS: New Orleans will never be released. Why? Because season seven marked the finish of the series. From November 2020 to May 2021, it was shown. In addition, there were sixteen 45-minute episodes in season seven.
The announcement was made when the production staff filmed episode 13 of season 7. Although it was disappointing to learn that the series would not be renewed for a seventh season, executive producer Jan Nash stated that they were delighted to be informed in advance so that the scripts for the final episodes could be altered.
The CBS network canceled the series because it appeared to have run its course. Sometimes television shows approach the end of their run, and we must bid them farewell.
Certainly, NCIS’s relatively low ratings and viewership: in New Orleans had a role. According to sources, season seven lost nearly a fifth of its viewers compared to the sixth season. In the next section, we shall compare this spin-off to the original series and its other spin-offs.
