Fans of the NCIS franchise have a lot to celebrate this weekend.

CBS shared some exciting news on Friday that there will be an all-new NCIS spin-off – the latest crime investigation unit is heading off the coast of the US for NCIS: Hawaii.

The Hawaiian series will be groundbreaking because it is based around a female special agent for the first time in NCIS history (via TheWrap).

Here is the official synopsis: "The world's most successful television series continues on the seductive shores of the Aloha State as the first female Special Agent in Charge of NCIS Pearl Harbor and her team balance duty to family and country, investigating high-stakes crimes involving military personnel, national security and the mysteries of the island itself."

Additionally, CBS has officially given the greenlight to a 13th season of NCIS: Los Angeles, while it also confirmed a few weeks ago that the original NCIS will be back for season 19.

Mark Harmon will be returning for the 19th season of NCIS, though it's still not known whether he will be appearing in a reduced capacity as widely speculated.

Wilmer Valderrama has dropped some hints that big changes are ahead for NCIS following a major twist in the season 18 finale.

"I mean, we're going to give people a lot to talk about. I'm not one to do the, 'You have to wait and see!' hype, but man, this episode is really unpredictable," he told TVLine.

"I promise you that you're not going to see any of this coming."

NCIS airs on CBS in the US and on FOX UK in the UK.
