NCIS: Sydney will help during the NCIS drought this fall. What is this new procedural going to be about? Will it follow the same format as the other shows in the franchise?
NCIS is heading Down Under. Earlier this year, we learned that NCIS: Sydney was officially happening. Now we know that CBS has landed the linear rights to it, and it will air the show in the fall. We have to wait until November, but at least we get something new in the franchise in the fall.
Of course, you’ll want to know what this series is going to be about. Well, the title gives that away, but will we end up getting a similar procedural format to the show that the other spin-offs in the franchise have? Will there be a difference with it being set in another country?
NCIS: Sydney synopsis
The basics of the show appear to be very similar to the main series. There are no details on the stories that are going to be used in the episodes, but ABC News in Australia confirmed that it would be local stories.
There is going to be an explanation for NCIS being in the country. After all, this is an American federal organization. While the FBI does work internationally, there are limitations to jurisdictions, so we’re sure to see some of that come up with the NCIS team here.
The NCIS team will need to work with the Australian Federal Police (AFP) in the area. They will work together to deal with the rising Indo-Pacific crimes that are on the rise.
Something that is worth noting is that Sydney doesn’t actually have an NCIS team. The closest is in Perth, and that’s more than 2000 miles away! However, most people know of Sydney over Perth!
NCIS: Sydney will premiere on Monday, Nov. 13 on CBS.
