CBS Has Renewed “NCIS: Sydney” for a Second Season

In Australia, the show can also be seen on Paramount+.

NBC will return to Australia with NCIS: Sydney.

The first overseas iteration of the NCIS program has received a second season order from the network. The acquisition is in line with Paramount+’s second-season order for the program in Australia.

With the addition of NCIS: Sydney, “the global power of the NCIS franchise became even stronger on broadcast and streaming,” according to a statement from CBS Entertainment president Amy Reisenbach. “These likable characters, original tales, and breathtaking Australian scenery have won over our American viewers.” We can’t wait to return to Australia for this show’s second season on CBS and spend even more time there.
NCIS: Sydney was an afterthought added to CBS’s autumn schedule, which the network had to completely rework amid the strikes of the previous year. With an average weekly viewership of 6.54 million over seven days (excluding streaming), it has done well domestically, finishing top among new series in the fall. Including streaming on Paramount+ and other CBS apps, NCIS: Sydney averaged 8 million cross-platform viewers during a five-week period, according to CBS.

The episode centers on a team of NCIS agents and Australian Federal Police officers who work together to form a joint task force to investigate maritime crimes in the area. Starring are Olivia Swann, William McInnes, Todd Lasance, Sean Sagar, Tuuli Narkle, and Mavournee Hazel.

Executive producer and showrunner Morgan O’Neill stated, “We’re beyond stoked with the response to the first season of the show, both in Australia and around the world, and that the team at NCIS: Sydney is returning for a second season.” “We’re especially excited to take our audience on a deeper exploration of our core team members’ lives, revealing the true motivations behind their actions.”

Endemol Shine Australia produces NCIS: Sydney for CBS Studios and Paramount Australia. Executive producers include O’Neill, Sara Richardson, and Michele Bennett.

The show has secured a place in CBS’ schedule for 2024–2025 with veteran programs Fire Country and Ghosts, as well as fellow rookie Tracker. In addition, the network plans to air a prequel on NCIS for the upcoming season. Meanwhile, a spinoff of NCIS starring Michael Weatherly and Cote de Pablo from the previous season will air onParamount+.
