PremiseEdit

NCIS: New Orleans follows a fictional team of Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) agents stationed out of New Orleans, Louisiana and led by Supervisory Special Agent Dwayne Cassius Pride (Scott Bakula). The team focuses on crimes that involve personnel in the United States Navy and Marine Corps, and their territory ranges from the Mississippi River to the Texas Panhandle. Working under the supervision of Pride at the start of the series are Christopher LaSalle (Lucas Black), a former Jefferson Parish sheriff's deputy recruited by Pride following Hurricane Katrina, and Meredith Brody (Zoe McLellan), a transfer from the NCIS Great Lakes field office, who has worked as a Special Agent Afloat and is keen to leave her past behind as she moves to New Orleans. They are assisted by Dr. Loretta Wade (CCH Pounder), the coroner for Jefferson Parish, Sebastian Lund (Rob Kerkovich), a forensics specialist who assists Wade, and Patton Plame (Daryl "Chill" Mitchell), a paraplegic hacker turned computer specialist for NCIS. In season 2, Sonja Percy (Shalita Grant), a ATF Special Agent who assisted the team on the Baitfish case the prior season, joins them on a permanent basis.

At the end of season 2, a case involving a domestic terrorist attack and a corrupt Homeland Security agent leads to backlash that culminates in Brody's resignation from NCIS at the start of season 3. Following this, FBI Special Agent Tammy Gregorio (Vanessa Ferlito) is sent to investigate Pride and his team; she is later recruited to NCIS after being fired by the FBI after a vital part of their case against a drug cartel goes wrong on her watch. Also, Sebastian, after taking an interest in field work, completes FLETC training and joins the team as a Forensics Agent during the season.

Near the end of season 4, Percy leaves the team after accepting an offer to join the FBI. Shortly after, Pride is shot and nearly killed by the vengeful wife of an assassin linked to the Clearwater case, whom he had killed in season 3. He recovers at the start of season 5, and later accepts a promotion to Regional Special-Agent-In-Charge for a change of pace. Arriving to replace him is Supervisory Special Agent Hannah Khoury (Necar Zadegan), a former intelligence agent looking to settle down and reconnect with her family.

In season 6, Khoury is demoted from team leader after breaking protocol in a joint-operation with the FBI, allowing Pride to return and retake his old position, though Khoury stays on as second-in-command. Also during the season, LaSalle's search into his brother Cade's disappearance, and later, murder, results in his own death at the hands of the same killer. After being avenged and mourned, he is soon replaced by the notoriously anti-social Special Agent Quentin Carter (Charles Michael Davis) a fixer with a reputation for working alone who gradually warms to the team over time.

In season 7, with the COVID-19 pandemic having thrown the city of New Orleans into uncertainty, JAG Commander Rita Devereaux (Chelsea Field), Pride's long-time girlfriend and a seasoned attorney, joins the D.A.'s office to help with restoring social justice, while Pride joins a task-force set up by the mayor to restore the city. The two eventually marry in the series finale.

Critical receptionEdit

NCIS: New Orleans has received mixed reviews from critics. Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes gives the first season of the show a rating of 65%, based on 26 reviews, with an average rating of 5.4/10. The site's consensus reads, "With a solid cast in a beautiful locale, NCIS: New Orleans makes extending this well-worn franchise look like the Big Easy."[79] Metacritic gives the show a score of 55 out of 100, based on 15 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[80]

In late September 2014, The Wrap's journalist Jason Hughes reviewed the pilot episode of the series, praising the music, the use of the city of New Orleans, and CBS' decision to cast Scott Bakula as "one of the most likable leading men in television, so they're set there."[81]

David Hinckley of the New York Daily News gave a mixed but critical review of the pilot episode, saying there is a "Crescent City flavor here. But in the larger picture, not much on this menu is unfamiliar."[82] Liz Shannon Miller and Ben Travers of Indiewire said that NCIS is like "the obelisk in 2001: A Space Odyssey, it's an awe-inspiring, inescapable presence in the broadcast line-up. NCIS on CBS: It is here. It has always been here. It forever will be."[83]

International criticismEdit

In April 2019, CBS released the plot of the first part of the show's fifth season's finale, "The River Styx, Part I", which is set to partially take place in the breakaway republic of South Ossetia, a region internationally recognized as part of Georgia but also recognized as independent by Russia, Nauru, Nicaragua, Venezuela, and Syria. The show, when describing the region, calls South Ossetia a "war-torn Russian province", which raised concerns from the Georgian government. On April 22, 2019, Georgian President Salome Zourabichvili posted on Twitter.[84]

An upcoming episode of @NCISNewOrleans set to feature #Georgia's 'South Ossetia' as a "Russian province" is troubling. This synopsis mistake is irresponsible and we call on @CBS and the show's writers to respect Georgia's territorial integrity and make the necessary changes.[84]

Neither CBS nor the show's producers have responded to the President's commentary. However, the description of the second part of the finale, "The River Styx, Part II" does not mention Russia, although the episode still takes place in South Ossetia.
