'NCIS: LA' and 'NCIS: New Orleans' Both Renewed by CBS

Both NCIS spinoffs, NCIS: Los Angeles and NCIS: New Orleans, were renewed for new seasons on CBS, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

NCIS: Los Angeles will return for its 11th season, while NCIS: New Orleans will be back for its sixth.

"Both shows have been key pillars to the CBS schedule for several years," CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl said in a statement Monday. "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."

The renewals come after NCIS star Mark Harmon signed a new deal to return for a 17th season of the flagship series.

NCIS: Los Angeles, which stars LL Cool J, Chris O'Donnell, Eric Christian Olsen and Daniela Ruah, has remained a fan favorite, even in its current 10th season, which is being used as a vehicle for a JAG reunion. The JAG following is so strong, in fact, that speculation continues to grow that NCIS: LA could give birth to a new incarnation of JAG.

Led by Scott Bakula, NCIS: New Orleans has begun to shrink in ratings, as they have fallen more than 10 percent. Behind-the-scenes issues may be at the root of the issue, as former showrunner Brad Kern and executive producer Adam Targum were fired.
