After two low-rated seasons as 48 Hours: NCIS, CBS decided to retitle this docu-series as NCIS: The Cases They Can’t Forget. Will this move affect the ratings? Will this show be cancelled or renewed for a fourth season? Stay tuned.
A CBS true crime docu-series, NCIS: The Cases They Can’t Forget features a slate of the biggest cases handled by the real-life U.S. Naval Criminal Investigative Service. Rocky Carroll narrates the news magazine, which features actual NCIS agents sharing the investigation techniques they use in cases including murder, fraud, and terrorism — ones the agents will never forget. The series delves into the sorts of real cases that have inspired the NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, and NCIS: New Orleans drama series.
