NCIS: New Orleans got a change of night, which certainly made many fear about the future of the show. Is there hope for a seventh season?
With our eyes right now on the future of our favorite TV shows, today we look at NCIS: New Orleans. With the Season 6 finale on Sunday, we want to know now more than ever if NCIS: New Orleans Season 7 is going to happen.
CBS hasn’t made a decision about many shows just yet. One that was a surprise was God Friended Me, which was canceled after two seasons. This puts NCIS: NOLA at risk.
It is worth pointing out that the live ratings aren’t the only metrics CBS will consider when deciding on the future of a show. The DVR and streaming ratings will also be a factor, along with pitches for the future of the shows and social media rankings. One of the reasons God Friended Me was canceled was because the figures between Season 1 and Season 2 dropped considerably and the DVR ratings are the lowest among all CBS shows. With that in mind, there’s some positive news for NCIS: New Orleans.
Season 7 is likely to happen
Despite the show’s live ratings being lower than God Friended Me, there’s a lot of hope for the future of NCIS: New Orleans. Let’s start with the show only just being below the social media-focused series in the demo. The audience for NOLA is stronger. It also sounds like the DVR ratings are much stronger for the TV crime drama.
When you factor everything together, it’s highly likely the show will be renewed for a seventh season. However, a decision may not be made for some time. The decision about NCIS Season 18 will need to happen first since Mark Harmon is an EP on all three franchise shows.
I hope there’s a seventh season. I get a sense that the Season 6 finale will end with a major cliffhanger, and not a planned one. There were a handful of episodes still to film, which would likely wrap up a storyline that the current finale is setting up. We’re going to need a seventh season to answer a lot of questions.
