“NCIS: Hawai'i ”canceled after 3 seasons at CBS

The season 3 finale, which will now serve as the series' final episode, airs May 6.

CBS is closing the case on one of its NCIS shows: After three seasons, NCIS: Hawai'i has been canceled.

Starring Vanessa Lachey as Jane Tennant, the first female Special Agent in Charge at NCIS Pearl Harbor, the spinoff series has followed her and her team as they balance their duty to family and country, investigating high-stakes crimes involving military personnel, national security, and the mysteries of Hawai'i itself.

The cancellation news comes after the NCIS-verse celebrated its 1,000th episode with a special April 15 crossover event on the flagship series that included characters from NCIS: Hawai'i and NCIS: Los Angeles.

It also comes in the wake of CBS adding actor and rapper LL Cool J to the cast as a recurring guest star in season 3, after he first made a surprise cameo as his NCIS: Los Angeles character, Special Agent Sam Hanna, in the season 2 finale. In addition to him and Lachey, NCIS: Hawai'i stars Tori Anderson, Alex Tarrant, Noah Mills, Yasmine Al-Bustami, and Jason Antoon. Matt Bosack, Jan Nash, Christopher Silber and Larry Teng are the series' executive producers.

Though it's unfortunate news for fans of Hawai'i, lovers of the procedural franchise won't have to wait too long for more content. CBS has already announced two new shows entering the NCIS-verse next season: NCIS: Origins will follow a young version of Leroy Jethro Gibbs, and another show for Paramount+ that has yet to be named will star Cote de Pablo and Michael Weatherly, reuniting as their NCIS characters Ziva David and Tony DiNozzo.

The season 3 finale of NCIS: Hawai'i, which will now serve as the series' final episode, will air Monday, May 6, at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
