NCIS New Orleans Season 7, May 23, 2021 Episode 16 Is The Finale. Season 8 Not Happening
Hey, “NCIS: New Orleans” fans. We are back at you for one last time tonight. We totally hope you enjoyed tonight’s episode 16 of NCIS: New Orleans’ current season 7, especially since it is the last one you’ll ever see.
That’s right, guys. We’ve got nothing but bad news for NCIS: New Orleans in this article. Not only is tonight’s episode 16 the last one for its current season 7, it’s going to be the last one forever!
For some reason, CBS decided not to renew NCIS: New Orleans for a brand new season 8. According to the folks over at TV Line, this announcement was made way back in late February 2021.
At that time, the co-showrunners and executive producers of NCIS: New Orleans Jan Nash and Christopher Silber commented on the cancellation saying, “It has been our sincere pleasure and honor to work on this show and with this incredible cast and crew for over 150 episodes.
As disappointed as we are to see NOLA end, we couldn’t be prouder of the work we’ve done and are grateful to the spectacular and resilient Crescent City that embraced us for seven wonderful years.”
We were able to track down a little insight into this NCIS: New Orleans cancellation. The folks over at Deadline.com spoke with CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl about it.
He explained saying,”Every year you evaluate what is making the strongest statement for your schedule and what gives you the best circulation, what will bring you the most numbers of viewers. You ask that question for pretty much every show every year, how can we make the schedule as strong as we can in the fall, and that leads to some tough decisions.
MacGyver has been an excellent show for us. NCIS: New Orleans was an excellent show for us, but sometimes, shows hit the end of their cycle, and we have to, in some cases, say goodbye.”
NCIS: New Orleans season 7 averaged 4.859 million LIVE viewers and a 0.51 ratings score for the 18-49 year old demographics. The most recent episode 15, which aired last Sunday night, May 16, 2021, drew in 4.982 million LIVE viewers and a 0.52 ratings score.
The most-watched episode was episode 4 with 5.169 million LIVE viewers. The least-watched episode was episode 5 with 4.537 million LIVE viewers.
The highest-rated episode was episode 1 with a 0.60 ratings score. The lowest-rated episode was episode 4 with a 0.44 ratings score. Unfortunately, those numbers were not good enough for CBS to give NCIS: New Orleans a new season 8. So, RIP (Rest In Peace) NCIS: New Orleans.
