Paramount+ greenlights season two of NCIS: Sydney

NCIS: Sydney

The show was Australia’s most-watched local series premiere since the launch of Paramount+.

Paramount+ has announced that NCIS: Sydney has been greenlit for a second season, with production due to begin shortly.

The show was Australia’s most-watched local series premiere since the launch of Paramount+ and the announcement coincides with a season two renewal by CBS Television Network in the U.S.

Paramount ANZ’s creative advisor drama, Rick Maier said: “This is such a powerful acknowledgement of both the great work and the wonderful audience response for season one. We’re thrilled to be going again with our brilliant cast, story team, crew and the best backdrop we know.”

NCIS: Sydney follows a team of U.S. NCIS Agents and the Australian Federal Police who have been grafted into a multi-national taskforce to keep naval crimes in check.

Having only just found their feet, season two will see the agents of NCIS: Sydney square off against a much more powerful adversary.

Executive producer and showrunner for Endemol Shine Australia, Morgan O’Neill said: “We’re beyond stoked with the response to the first season of the show, both in Australia and around the world, and that the team at NCIS: Sydney are returning for a second season.

“We’re especially thrilled to invite our audience deeper into the lives of our core team, peeling back the layers to find out what really makes them tick. This will be even more important as we see the bonds of the new family tested to breaking point in the face of a much more potent enemy looming on the horizon.”

NCIS: Sydney stars Olivia Swann, Todd Lasance, Sean Sagar, Tuuli Narkle, Mavournee Hazel and William McInnes. The series is created by Morgan O’Neill, who serves as executive producer alongside Endemol Shine Australia’s Sara Richardson and Michele Bennett. Produced by Endemol Shine Australia for CBS Studios and Paramount Australia, and distributed outside Australia by Paramount Global Content Distribution.
