There could still be a future for NCIS when the strikes come to an end. NCIS began in 2002 as a military procedural spin-off of JAG and has quickly come to dominate the TV landscape. It has spawned multiple spin-offs, including NCIS: Los Angeles, New Orleans, Hawai'i, and Sydney. Season 20 — the most recent season — came to an end in May. While the show has been renewed for another season, delays relating to the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes have made the future uncertain.
