NCIS fans fume at Australian spin-off tease just months after LA cancellation

Watch the trailer for NCIS: Sydney

Fans of the NCIS franchise were left furious at the first look at Australia’s new spin-off which will arrive just six months after the NCIS Los Angeles was cancelled.

NCIS Sydney will become the fourth addition to the franchise and much like the original, it will follow the same procedural format but will take place in international waters.

Unlike NCIS Hawaii which takes place on the scenic island, this will be the first time the CBS drama will travel across the globe.

Bosses have provided major insight into the series with the release of an action-packed trailer and first-look images across social media.

However, it seems not everyone was pleased with the prospects of the NCIS-verse growing as many called for the return of the beloved Los Angeles spin-off.

A post shared by The NCISverse (@ncisverse)

The NCISverse’s official Instagram page shared the teaser and announced an official release date in a post which read: “Buckle up – the #NCISverse is headed down under.

“The series premiere of #NCISSydney comes to your screens: AU Friday, November 10 on Paramount+ Australia, US Monday, November 13 on CBS.”

Although the cast was photographed with the NCIS clapperboard in front of Sydney’s scenic Harbour Bridge, some fans were not satisfied.

A furious @alohajman commented: “Bring back NCIS: New Orleans and Los Angeles. I’m not investing in a new show when the other shows still had life in them.”

A fuming @jacobedmondss threatened to boycott and added: “I’m sorry but this is stupid. Killed off LA for Sydney? I won’t be watching this.”

While an uncertain @peachyqm admitted: “Ugh! I don’t know how I feel about a spin-off after you killed LA!”

@jaythuesen stated: “I’m from Sydney.. And don’t care about this.. Shouldn’t have cancelled LA!” (sic)

Despite the backlash, other fans were excited to see the procedural back on screens with an Australian spin.

As @hoiningngai exclaimed: “OMGGGGGGG THIS IS EPIC!! YAY!!”

@Ianderson1723 echoed: “Cool can’t wait I love NCIS.”

The Instagram post also teased at major crime ahead of the dedicated team as they inspected a crime scene and looked mystified at their investigation board.

The cast of NCIS Sydney includes Olivia Swann as NCIS Special Agent Michelle Mackey, Todd Lasance as Sergeant Jim ‘JD’ Dempsey, Sean Sagar as NCIS Special Agent DeShawn Jackson, and Tuuli Narkle as AFP liaison Officer Constable Evie Cooper.

NCIS Sydney season 1 will premiere on Monday, November 13 on CBS in the USA. A UK release date has yet to be announced.
