Is NCIS: Hawai’i ending for good?
Is NCIS: Hawai’i ending for good? The answer is yes. NCIS: Hawai’i was canceled by CBS in April 2024 after three seasons, and unfortunately, it won’t be picked up by another network, as source told TVLine in May 2024 that NCIS: Hawai’i is not being shopped elsewhere.
CBS Entertainment President Amy Reisenbach also confirmed to Variety at the time that there isn’t a chance of an “un-cancellation” for NCIS: Hawai’i, unlike other CBS series like S.W.A.T., which was uncanceled twice.

As for the reason for NCIS: Hawai’i cancellation, Reisenbach told the magazine that the decision had to do with finances, as well as CBS’ upcoming schedule, which includes NCIS’ upcoming spin-off, NCIS: Origins, a prequel following young Leroy Jethro Gibbs (played by Mark Harmon in the mother series.) An upcoming NCIS spin-off featuring Michael Weatherly’s Tony DiNozzo and Cote de Pablo’s Ziva David is also in the works at Paramount Plus.
Following NCIS: Hawai’i‘s cancellation, star Vanessa Lachey, who played Jane Tennant, shared an emotional note on her Instagram expressing her gratitude for the series.

“Forever your Sweet Jane… This was the same spot where I filmed episode 1. I sat here at 2am on June 2021 and stared into the ocean,” she captioned a photo of her sitting on the beach in Hawaii “I asked her to protect me, my family, my crew and our show. I told her we will do all we can to protect the grace and integrity of Hawai’i while also sharing her Beauty with the world. As I sat here today, knowing our show is over, I turned to her again… what do we do now….(please protect us all) She answered with ease. Just as the air hits the water & the water hits the land, the waves connect to the shore, some with a huge impact, then… it goes back out. You see… we aren’t meant to be here forever, we are on borrowed time.”

She continued, “We appreciate what was given to us for our use, we nurture it and then we leave it better for the next dreamer. I’m wishing for my crew and my cast that we all remember the Beauty of what we had… we will spread this Aloha in every direction we go. I wish we had more time, I’m sorry we don’t. I wish we had a proper good-bye, I’m sorry we didn’t. I know we ALL are connected deeper than any TV show.”

She concluded her post, “I will go to the ends of the earth for my cast & crew! If you come across ANY of them… hire them! You won’t be disappointed. Salt of the earth people! In Hawai’i we don’t say “Good-Bye”, we say “A Hui Hou” it means “until we meet again”. To you all & especially the beloved fans… A Hui Hou. ❤️ Love Always, Your Sweet Jane.”
