The fans could no longer see a fourth installment of television series NCIS New Orleans as the showrunners are now doubting the show’s capability to attract viewers. NCIS New Orleans Season 4 may be in jeopardy if the ratings continue to go down.

According to TV Series Finale, the first two seasons of the show were aired directly under the banner NCIS which already had a guaranteed number of viewers. It is CBS’ most watched series after all. But now, the network is changing its timeslot to 10 p.m. where its considered to be a dead time with fewer viewers.

According to them, the ratings of the third installment has been pleasantly good and will not disappoint. Moreover, fans are confident that NCIS New Orleans Season 4 will happen.

The third season of the show started on Sept. 20 and was able to achieve more than 11 million viewers to watch. Ratings typically indicate a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. It is a no brainer that the higher the ratings, the better chances for the show to stick around.

NCIS New Orleans shows the life of Special Agent Dwayne Pride’s (Scott Bakula) team of criminal case investigators stationed around the local field office in New Orleans. The show’s cast includes CCH Pounder, Daryl Chill Mitchell, Lucas Black, Rob Kerkovich, Shalita Grant, and Vanessa Ferlito.
