CBS viewers tuned into a thrilling double bill of NCIS this week as the two spin-offs gear up for next week’s finales. While NCIS: Los Angeles is set to continue in season 13, there won’t be a dry eye in the house when NCIS: New Orleans’ seventh and final instalment comes to an unexpected conclusion.
Fans still aren’t ready to say farewell to the ever popular NCIS spin-off, NCIS: New Orleans.
The seventh season of CBS’ action-packed police drama was confirmed to have been cancelled earlier this year, despite extensions being given to the rest of the franchise.
Dwayne Pride (played by Scott Bakula) and the team will therefore be bowing out with next Sunday’s episode, ‘Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler’.
A new preview has teased the heartwarming wedding between Pride and his fiancé Rita Devereaux, played by Bakula’s real life wife Chelsea Field.
Their wedding will certainly bring the series to an appropriately touching conclusion, as they had both agreed to move the ceremony forward in light of Pride’s mother’s failing health.
An official synopsis reads: “On the eve of Pride’s wedding to Rita, and Connor entering witness protection, Pride must find who attacked Jimmy (Jason Alan Carvell) and Connor (Drew Scheid), while also figuring out Sasha’s (Callie Thorne) ulterior motives regarding their son.”
Unfortunately, it seems the happy occasion won’t go without some of NCIS’s signature drama.
However, hopefully Pride can tackle their latest case and clear things up with Sasha Broussard before it comes time to finally tie the knot with Rita.
Many fans were furious with CBS’s decision to cut the series back in February, as NCIS: NOLA still pulls in considerable ratings with each new episode.
Thankfully, showrunner Christopher Silber and the writers have had enough time to formulate a satisfying conclusion to the series.
Even so, this hasn’t stopped fans from posting their devastated reactions to the latest teaser trailer when the first footage from the series finale was revealed online.
One Twitter user wrote: “I’m not ready for the finale. I need at least one more season to see what happens with Pride and his son.”

Although episode 16 will try to wrap up Pride and Connor’s storyline as best as it can, many viewers still think there’s some unresolved tension that can’t be cleared up in a single episode.
Another fan said: “Weird to think this is the last time we’ll hear Scott Bakula say ‘Stay tuned for scenes from our next episode.’
“Nice continued Sasha story arc and a heartwarming standalone story tonight. Excited for the series finale next week!”
While more fans were dubious the current storylines will be properly resolved by next week, with some wishing the series could end with a two hour double bill.
“Curious to see how they wrap up the Sasha/Connor storyline in the finale,” speculated one viewer. “I’m sure it’ll be mighty stressful before the big moment of Pride and Rita’s wedding.”
And a final fan exclaimed: “OK, Writers are evil!!! They love torturing us and making us wait till next week for the series finale!
“Wish that episode would be 2 hours! 1 hour is not enough time to see goodbye!!”
Thankfully, the mainline NCIS series and its Los Angeles offshoot will still continue, and fans even have the brand new spin-off NCIS: Hawaii still to look forward to.
NCIS: New Orleans season 7 concludes Sunday, May 23 on CBS.
