'Hawaii' cancellation explained, 'Blue Bloods' end date

After the surprising news that… NCIS: Hawaii will not be returning for Season 4, CBS Entertainment President Amy Reisenbach has spoken about the network's decision to cancel the Vanessa Lachey-led procedural.

“It is our job to always keep the schedule up to date and maintain momentum. “We had to make some really difficult decisions this year,” Reisenbach said, according to Variety. “Everything came back [from the Hollywood strikes] really strong, but ultimately we have to pay attention to the coherence of the schedule flow. We need to assess overall finances and performance and make difficult decisions.”

Reisenbach said there was no chance of an “uncancellation” since Clap received (twice) while TVLine learns the series will not be purchased elsewhere.

Reisenbach also said that CBS has no plans to renew the long-running hit Blue blood go beyond the current 14th season, although the cast (Tom Selleck included) have advocated for at least a longer farewell series. Rather, following its upcoming finale on May 17, the family/cop drama will return with the second half of its final season in October and conclude with a series finale at the end of the year.

“We love this cast, we love their passion for the show. All shows must come to an end. It is important for us to update the schedule,” Reisenbach noted, per Deadline. “We will finish the show in December.”
