CBS has given a green light to more NCIS: Hawaii and FBI: International.

Both freshman dramas have received full season orders for the 2021/22 broadcast season, it was announced today.

“These two terrific new dramas are off to a tremendous start,” said Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment.

“They have significantly strengthened and improved our lineup on their respective nights and are generating huge increases on our streaming platforms as well. We applaud the talented producers, writers and casts on their compelling storytelling and performances, which are clearly resonating with viewers.”

Over the last 3 weeks NCIS: Hawaii has held steady in ratings, scoring a 0.5 in the all-important 18-49 demographic, although the total number of viewers slipped from 6.59 million overall week 1 viewers to 5.54 million viewers in the third episode.

Meanwhile, FBI: International slipped from 0.6 (18-49) to 0.5 in episode 3, with a dip from 6.43 to 6.09 million viewers by week 3.


NCIS: Hawaii centers on the first female special agent in charge of NCIS Pearl Harbor, Jane Tennant (Vanessa Lachey), who has thrived and risen through the ranks by equal parts confidence and strategy in a system that has pushed back on her every step of the way. Together with her unwavering team of specialists, they balance duty to family and country while investigating high-stakes crimes involving military personnel, national security and the mysteries of the sun-drenched island paradise itself.


FBI: International is the third iteration of the FBI brand that follows the elite operatives of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s International Fly Team. Headquartered in Budapest, they travel the world with the mission of tracking and neutralizing threats against American citizens wherever they may be, relying on intelligence, quick thinking and pure brawn as they put their lives on the line to protect the U.S. and its people. Always at the scene where American interests are at risk, FBI: International is a globe-trotting depiction of law enforcement overseas.
