Fans of NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles and NCIS: New Orleans love their shows and with good reason. Local crimes are solved at the regional NCIS offices with plenty of drama thrown in for good measure. This has left some viewers wondering what would happen if all three shows in the series came together for an epic crossover event? Think about it – NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles and NCIS: New Orleans pitch in to solve a major case and save America.
Yes, crossovers have happened in the past with the popular drama series as we saw NCIS agents over on NCIS: Los Angeles. Then there was NCIS action on NCIS: New Orleans. Of course, there was even some crime drama crossover with agents of NCIS: Los Angeles solving crimes on Hawaii Five-O. However that event seemed more like a guest star opportunity as it wasn’t within the NCIS series. All of the heart pounding action had viewers tuning in to see how the characters would work together on different crimes.
Characters from every NCIS series on one story
Many fans would love to see an epic NCIS series crossover event as it’s a chance to see characters from all three CBS shows come together to fight a crime against the mainland. In what could be a three-hour opportunity that includes agents from all the offices, the goal of coming together to defeat one of America’s biggest crimes would be a tune-in event. If Agent Pride worked with Agent Gibbs continuously in one event it would be mind blowing. What if Agent Sam Hanna worked with Abigail Sciuto working together in solving a massive crime? Yes, we’d be watching those episodes twice (come on, you would too.)
Working side by side: NCIS solves a crime against America
As for the characters of the shows, everyone would want to see the agents working side-by-side to solve the crimes. The mainstay characters shouldn’t be staying at home manning the phones, while one or two of the characters show up on scene. This has been done before and it was disappointing. The characters, all of them, need to be working side-by-side with their counterparts in the field. The character interaction would be a priceless opportunity as viewers see how when a major event happens people come together.
Crossovers work well on TV: People tune in to see the excitement
Other networks have done big story lines for their drama series and it’s worked quite well. The crossover event with Chicago Fire, Chicago, P.D. and Chicago Justice had viewers on the edge of their seats. Not only did the fans love the show, it also introduced a new show in the series.
With the new season coming up, viewers have wondered how the different series will progress. Leaving so many questions unanswered, there is no doubt the writers are focused on continuing the stories. Hopefully the creative minds of the NCIS series will consider a crossover too. It would be great TV!
