Since 2003 NCIS has been gracing our screens! To date, that’s 333 episodes and 15 seasons. Yup, just go ahead and let ~that~ sink in. Statistics aside, the show’s concept and characters are the real heart of the story that keeps viewers coming back for more. Which is cause enough for us to roll up our sleeves and present you with facts you most likely didn’t know about long-running series.
‘JAG’ Inspired ‘NCIS’
NCIS is a spin-off from JAG, a legal drama for the U.S. Navy. Both NCIS and JAG were created by Donald P. Bellisario – who wrote episodes of the beloved Magnum, P.I. starring Tom Selleck.
