NCIS: Los Angeles Cast Reacts to Series Ending After 14 Years: ‘What a Spectacular Journey We All Shared’

In the wake of being told on Friday afternoon that NCIS: Los Angeles would end its run after this season, cast members of the high-octane CBS drama have one by one weighed in on the news.

Perhaps Eric Christian Olsen, who joined the NCIS spinoff as recurring during Season 1 (and became a series regular the following year), summed it up best. "What a spectacular journey we all shared," he wrote, alongside a stunning BTS photo of his Marty Deeks in silhouette.

As reported by TVLine on Friday, NCIS: LA will be ending its run at the end of this season, its 14th, with the series finale airing Sunday, May 14 at 10/9c.

"What an amazing 14-year ride with my @ncisla family," Chris O'Donnell shared on Instagram. "Just want to take a moment to say thank you to all of our amazing fans that tuned in every week. On to the next adventure!" Fellow original cast member/on-screen partner LL Cool J, meanwhile, noted on Twitter the recent and well-watched crossover event, before adding, "After 14 seasons, it's the perfect time to end @NCISLA on top!"

"From season 1 to season 14, from 24 yrs old to 39, it has been an absolute dream," fellow original cast member Daniela Ruah wrote on Instagram, alongside then-and-now photos of her Kensi Blye. "So many feelings to process and too many words to say. I will save them for a later date… I'm so so grateful to have been a part of this NCISLA family. The show lasted this long because of all of you ♥️."

Caleb Castille, who made his debut as Devin Rountree in Season 11, tweeted, "Incredibly sad about the news that @NCISLA won't be coming back to give you guys another season but man what an amazing accomplishment… 14 seasons! Shoutout to the best fans & crew in the world! I'm eternally grateful for the opportunity. Special Agent Devin Rountree signing off." Medalion Rahimi, who plays Fatima Namazi, remarked on Instagram, "What a journey, so grateful for you all."

Erik Palladino, who since Season 4 has popped up now and again as CIA vet/team frenemy Vostanik Sabatino, posted a really lovely series of Instagram stories in which he praised individual cast members as well as showrunner R. Scott Gemmill and others.
