Set against the spectacular backdrop of one of the world’s most breathtaking harbor cities, NCIS: Sydney follows a brilliant and eclectic team of U.S. NCIS agents and the Australian Federal Police (AFP), who, with rising international tensions in the Indo-Pacific, are grafted into a multinational taskforce to keep naval crimes in check in the most contested patch of ocean on the planet.

The eight-episode series stars Olivia Swann (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The River Wild) as NCIS Special Agent Michelle Mackey and Todd Lasance (Without Remorse, Spartacus: War of the Damned) as her 2IC AFP counterpart, Sergeant Jim “JD” Dempsey. They are joined by Sean Sagar (The Covenant, Mea Culpa) as NCIS Special Agent DeShawn Jackson, Tuuli Narkle (Mystery Road: Origin, Bad Behaviour) as AFP liaison officer Constable Evie Cooper, Mavournee Hazel (Shantaram, Halifax: Retribution) as AFP forensic scientist Bluebird “Blue” Gleeson, and William McInnes (The Newsreader, Total Control) as AFP forensic pathologist Dr Roy Penrose.

NCIS: Sydney premieres Monday, November 13, at 10pm ET/PT on the CBS Television Network, with new episodes dropping on subsequent Mondays. Subscribers to Paramount+ with Showtime will be able to stream each episode live via the live feed of their local CBS affiliate on the streaming service, as well as via on demand. Paramount+ Essential subscribers will have access to on-demand streaming of the series the day after each episode airs.

The series will premiere on Paramount+ Australia on Friday, November 10, with additional Paramount+ international markets to follow at a later date.

Originally developed for Network 10 and Paramount+ in Australia, NCIS: Sydney is produced for CBS Studios and Paramount Australia by Endemol Shine Australia and distributed outside Australia by Paramount Global Content Distribution. The series is created by Morgan O’Neill (Les Norton), who also serves as executive producer alongside Endemol Shine Australia’s Sara Richardson (RFDS) and Sue Seeary (Ten Pound Poms).

NCIS: Sydney marks the fifth series in the popular global “NCIS” franchise, which includes NCIS and NCIS: Hawai’i, both picked up for their 21st and third seasons, respectively, as well as NCIS: Los Angeles, which just completed its 14-year run, and NCIS: New Orleans.
