Exclusive: CBS eyes 'NCIS' spin-off

Posted on

Ncisspinoff_l_2 In a move that will surprise only the brainless, NCIS‘ odds-defying ratings surge this season has

prompted CBS to quietly begin developing a spin-off, sources confirm to

me exclusively.

Although a spokesperson for the hit procedural declined to comment, my

industry moles reveal that a new crop of naval sleuths will likely be

introduced in an episode of NCIS later this season and launched into

their own show as early as next fall.

“It’s still in the early stages,” maintains an insider, who says no

final decisions have been made about the premise or the setting.

The NCIS offshoot will likely put on hold CBS’ long-gestating Criminal Minds spin-off.

For more on NCIS‘ franchise expansion, pick up next week’s issue of EW, on sale

this Friday. In the meantime, initial reactions are being accepted in

the comments section below!
