Five years later, in Season 11, another two-part episode led to the birth of the second spinoff series titled “NCIS: New Orleans.”
NCIS was voted America’s most favorite TV show in 2011. The show wrapped up its Season 10 as the most-watched TV series in the US during the 2012-13 TV season.
The TV series follows the fictional team of the NCIS Major Case Response Team (MCRT) special agents based at the Washington D.C. field office in Washington Navy Yard, at Washington D.C.
The NCIS is the primary law enforcement and counter-intelligence of the US Department of Navy, which includes the US Marine Corps.
NCIS investigates all major criminal offenses and felonies punishable under the Uniform Code of Military Justice by confinement of more than one year within the Department of the Navy.
The MCRT is often assigned to high-profile cases such as the death of the US president’s military aide, a bomb situation on a US navy warship, the death of a celebrity on a reality show set on a US Marine Corps base, terrorist threats involving US Naval and Marine Corps weapons, personnel and/or installations, as well as kidnappings of Navy and Marine Corps personnel or their dependents and relatives.
