CBS president Amy Reisenbach said in a statement (via TheWrap): "For 14 seasons, NCIS: Los Angeles has been a stalwart of our lineup with characters who were a joy to watch.

"It’s no surprise this show succeeded as a global franchise. From day one, the cast, producers and crew were amazing Network/Studios partners, and their teamwork, talent and spirit vividly came through on the screen.

"We are so grateful for the collaboration and remarkable run of these treasured members of our CBS family, and plan to give them the big send-off they and their fans deserve."

Showrunner R Scott Gemill added: "Our crew has grown to be a true family, and their hard work and dedication has been fundamental to our success year after year.

"My deepest gratitude to the cast members, who have brought our characters to life with their impassioned performances – thank you for your talent, professionalism and continuous enthusiasm. And to our loyal viewers who loved our characters and followed their journeys, thank you. We look forward to delivering an end to the series that is both satisfying and does justice to these beloved characters."

The show lasted this long because of all of you."
