R. Scott Gemmill, the showrunner of NCIS: Los Angeles, recently discussed what the series would have looked like if it had continued beyond its 14th season. In the show’s final episode, which was designed as both a season and series finale, viewers witnessed the highly anticipated wedding of G. Callen, portrayed by Chris O’Donnell, and Anna Kolcheck, portrayed by Bar Paly. This storyline provided an opportunity for the show to bring its ensemble cast together for some poignant final scenes.

In a post-finale interview with TV Insider, Gemmill was asked about his vision for the NCIS: Los Angeles Season 14 finale if it hadn’t been intended as a series conclusion. His response revealed that the wedding of Callen and Anna wouldn’t have occurred at that point. Additionally, he hinted at significant changes related to Kensi, played by Daniela Ruah.

NCIS: Los Angeles has left an indelible mark on television, with 323 episodes and a devoted fan base built over the years. The decision to conclude the series was reportedly influenced by CBS’s financial considerations, given the show’s substantial production costs. However, CBS provided sufficient notice of the series’ end, allowing showrunner R. Scott Gemmill the opportunity to craft a satisfying conclusion. Gemmill cited the finale’s pivotal wedding as one of the ways the series provided closure.

While the future of NCIS: Los Angeles remains uncertain, it’s worth noting that CBS has revived previous long-running series like CSI and Criminal Minds. Additionally, given the renewals of the original NCIS and NCIS: HawaiĘ»i, there’s potential for fan-favorite characters from NCIS: Los Angeles to make appearances in future crossover events within the larger NCIS franchise.

For now, Gemmill and the writing team have bid farewell to the series in a manner that addressed many of the fans’ desires accumulated over several seasons. It serves as a fitting conclusion for a spinoff that has quietly established an impressive legacy within the NCIS franchise.
