CBS has renewed NCIS for the 2018-19 broadcast season, with series star and executive producer Mark Harmon having signed a new agreement to continue with the show.
This season, NCIS is averaging 17 million viewers and is one of the top five most-watched shows on broadcast television. NCIS is also one of the most-watched prime-time series across CBS’s digital platforms. The drama has been licensed into more than 200 territories.
“It’s pretty simple—viewers everywhere love NCIS,” said Kelly Kahl, the president of CBS Entertainment. “This show speaks to viewers of all ages, in all parts of the country and around the world. NCIS’s amazing characters and terrific storytelling result in some of TV’s most passionate fans. Of course, none of this would be possible without an outstanding production team, and talented cast led by the incomparable and absolutely tireless Mark Harmon. We’re thrilled he is returning as the centerpiece of the show, and we could not be more excited for NCIS’s 16th season.”
