NCIS HAWAII has grown in popularity as the CBS drama’s first season has progressed. Is there going to be another series, or has it been canceled..?
Since her debut in NCIS Hawaii last year, Jane Tennant (played by Vanessa Lachey) has quickly become one of the NCIS universe’s most popular characters. CBS viewers have continued to tune in in their millions as she and the team in Hawaii tackle a new batch of cases on the sun-soaked island, proving the drama’s ever-expanding franchise is still as strong as ever. And now, even more good news is on the way.
Will there be a second season of NCIS Hawaii? Is it still on the books..?
On Thursday, March 31, CBS announced that Jane, Ernie (Jason Antoon), and the rest of the NCIS Hawaii team would return for season two.
It’s also not the only drama from the hit cr1me franchise to be renewed.
NCIS will enter its 20th season, while Chris O’Donnell’s G Callen and LL Cool J’s Sam Hanna will return in NCIS Los Angeles season 14.
Within minutes of the announcement, lead star Lachey issued a statement to commemorate the occasion.
Lachey posted a video on Instagram of herself and the rest of the NCIS Hawaii cast and crew dancing along.
“CHEE WHOO!!!” she captioned the video. We completed the task. @ncishawaiicbs SEASON 2!
“This is only possible because of the people and the island.” Thank you so much to my entire cast, crew, and Island family.
“We are who we are as a result of EVERYONE of you!” Your dedication, love, and support enable us to shine.”
Lachey also paid tribute to her husband, Nick Lachey, with whom she co-stars on Netflix’s Love Is Blind.
“And to my husband, who relocated our entire family and life to Hawaii so that I could pursue my dreams with the people who mean the most to me by my side, Thank You, Babe!” “We finished it,” she added.
Lachey ended her heartfelt post with, “What a ride!” Now… LET SEASON 2 BEGIN!!!! #NCISHawaii.”
CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl also issued a statement explaining the network’s decision to continue the NCIS universe.
“NCIS, one of the world’s most popular and enduring series, and fan favorite NCIS: Los Angeles have been hugely successful on the CBS schedule for years,” she said [via TV Line].
“With the strong new addition of NCIS: Hawai’i, we are able to expand the strength of this formidable franchise across our schedule,” she added.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome back all three talented casts and creative teams to bring more compelling NCIS stories to viewers in the United States and around the world.”
With NCIS Hawaii’s first season still in full swing, a release date has yet to be announced.
CBS, on the other hand, has confirmed when season one will conclude, with the finale set to air on Monday, May 23.
This will be the day after NCIS season 19 concludes and the day after NCIS LA’s 13th season concludes.
The renewal also follows the first-ever NCIS and NCIS Hawaii crossover event, so can fans expect more team-ups in the second season?
