CBS has renewed “NCIS” for two more seasons, which will be number 14 and 15.
In turn, star and executive producer Mark Harmon has inked a new two-year deal.
“It’s extraordinary that in its 13th season and with over 300 episodes to its credit, NCIS continues to excel at such a high level on a global scale,” Glenn Geller, president, CBS Entertainment, said. “It is testimony to an amazing cast, led on and off the screen by the exceptional Mark Harmon, for skillfully bringing this universally appealing team of heroes to life; and to Gary Glasberg and his writers for crafting compelling stories that feature NCIS’s signature blend of mystery, quirk, drama and comedy every single week.”
“NCIS” averages a massive 20.47 million viewers per Nielsen’s “most current” ratings, which includes seven-day delayed viewing numbers where available. Remarkably, that total is actually up four percent from last year.
In the key 18-49 demographic, CBS’ crown drama jewel averages a 3.1 rating/10 share. That’s good enough to be a Top 15 broadcast show.
“NCIS,” which premiered on CBS in 2003, is licensed in more than 200 markets.
