Fans Upset Over ‘NCIS: Hawai’i’ Cancelation Blame ‘NCIS: Origins’

The CBS naval criminal investigation procedural franchise enjoyed a resurgence with the upcoming premieres of NCIS: Origins and NCIS: Tony And Ziva. Amidst this high, Paramount announced the cancellation of NCIS: Hawai’i, creating a wave of discontent among fans, particularly as the news came after a suspenseful season finale.

Uncertainty for NCIS: Hawai’i Fans

Fans of the show centered around NCIS: Hawai’i are left without closure after three seasons. They are disheartened by the lack of a fourth season and any opportunity to resolve the storylines on streaming platforms, a common pathway for well-loved shows such as NBC’s Law & Order: Organized Crime. “Financials” was the reason given for the show’s termination. Despite the involvement of franchise vet LL Cool J from NCIS: Los Angeles, the show could not be saved.

Blame Games and Boycotts in the Wake of Cancellation

Since the cancellation, there has been speculation amongst viewers regarding the true reason for axing NCIS: Hawai’i. Some viewers suggest that funds were reallocated to support the production of NCIS: Origins. This transfer of resources is believed to herald the story of Gibbs, a character integral to the NCIS series, in his early years before becoming an NCIS agent. These circumstances have spurred calls for boycotting NCIS: Origins, with some disgruntled viewers expressing their disappointment on Twitter.

It remains to be seen if these calls will significantly impact Origins’ viewership.

Future of NCIS: Origins Still in Shadows

As of now, there is no definitive date for the premiere of NCIS: Origins. Therefore, any potential impact of the backlash over the cancellation of NCIS: Hawai’i on the new show’s viewership will likely only become clear in 2025.

Wrapping Up

The cancellation of Paramount’s NCIS: Hawai’i has stirred controversy and backlash among fans, leading to boycott calls. The true influence of this reaction on the viewership of the upcoming NCIS: Origins is yet to be ascertained.
