Crime knows no borders, so the NCIS franchise is going global. CBS has released a first look at **NCIS: Sydney**, the latest spinoff set in Australia. This series will feature a team of U.S. NCIS agents working alongside the Australian Federal Police in a multinational task force to tackle naval crimes in one of the world’s most contested oceans.

Premiering Monday, Nov. 13, in the U.S., **NCIS: Sydney** marks the franchise’s first international installment and the fifth series overall, joining NCIS (now entering its 21st season), NCIS: Los Angeles (2009-2023), NCIS: New Orleans (2014-2021), and NCIS: Hawai’i (now in its third season).

“NCIS is one of the most popular series in the world and we’re thrilled to expand this franchise with a uniquely Australian twist,” said Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment. “With the addition of NCIS: Sydney, our studio and network footprint continues to grow in this fascinating world that has been a proven winner with viewers on both linear and streaming platforms. Featuring the stunning backdrop of Australia, the new series will incorporate the high-stakes intrigue, humor, and camaraderie that have kept fans captivated by the NCIS teams for over two decades.”

The introduction of **NCIS: Sydney** to CBS’ fall lineup comes amid the dual writers’ and actors’ strikes, which have largely halted TV and film production in Hollywood.

**NCIS: Sydney** stars Olivia Swann (DC’s *Legends of Tomorrow*) as NCIS Special Agent Michelle Mackey; Todd Lasance (*Spartacus: War of the Damned*) as her AFP counterpart, Sergeant Jim “JD” Dempsey; Sean Sagar (*The Covenant*) as NCIS Special Agent DeShawn Jackson; Tuuli Narkle (*Mystery Road: Origin*) as AFP liaison officer Constable Evie Cooper; Mavournee Hazel (*Halifax: Retribution*) as AFP forensic scientist Bluebird “Blue” Gleeson; and William McInnes (*The Newsreader*) as AFP forensic pathologist Dr. Roy Penrose.

The eight-episode first season of **NCIS: Sydney** premieres Nov. 13 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS, with episodes available for streaming the next day on Paramount+. In Australia, the series will launch on Nov. 10 on Paramount+. Check out more first-look photos below.
