‘NCIS: Hawai’i’ Star Vanessa Lachey “Gutted”, “Blindsided” By Series Cancellation; Cast & Creators React – Update


UPDATED: NCIS: Hawai’i cast members and co-creators are still digesting the news that the series will not return for a fourth season following its cancellation by CBS Friday afternoon.

Vanessa Lachey made history as the first female lead — who is also a woman of color — in the NCIS franchise as Special Agent in Charge Jane Tennant. She shared her first reaction to news of the cancellation overnight on Instagram Story.

Gutted, confused, blindsided,” “Grateful, confident, beloved fans!”

“Processing this news and still being present with my family,” she wrote. “I love you all! Maholo Nui Loa.”

Tori Anderson, who portrayed FBI agent Kate Whistler, posted on X: “Having a really hard time processing this one,” she wrote. “Thank you to our incredible crew who made every single day feel like I was living a dream. I want to say thank you to all the fans. My heart breaks for you as well.”

“This is a huge loss for representation,” Anderson noted of the cancellation, concluding with “Love you all so much.”

Jason Antoon, who played cyber intelligence specialist Ernie, shared his disappointment on Instagram. “This business is brutal and makes no sense. But we had soooo much fun. Love you all and mahalo.”

Co-creator/executive producer Christopher Silber recalled the beginnings of NCIS: Hawai’i on X.

“Four years ago, @JanNash100 @mattbosack and I started something very special. We joined with an incredible cast, amazing writers and crew… and gathered in Hawai’i to make a show. But ended up creating an ohana. I’m so grateful to you all.”

Fellow co-creator/executive producer Matt Bosack, who served as showrunner, retweeted Silber’s reaction while also sharing his own thoughts on the cancellation.

NCIS: Hawaii was a dream. And while it’s ended, I am forever grateful to my partners, @csilb and
@JanNash100, our amazing cast, led by @VanessaLachey, the entire crew, and this wonderful island I call home…,” he wrote. “I’m proud of the stories we were able to tell over these 3 seasons. To tell fun Navy crime mysteries but also dig into ideas about family, life, love, identity… To all the fans, especially those who saw themselves in these characters, mahalo nui loa. A hui hou.”

Cast member Kian Talan, who played Lachey’s son, reposted Deadline’s story on the cancellation on his IG story with a heart emoji.
