Watch the trailer for NCIS: Sydney
NCIS: Sydney will premiere on the streaming platform Paramount Plus in the UK on Friday, November 10.
There is a total of eight episodes in season one which will be released on a weekly basis.
The new series comes after NCIS: Los Angeles was sadly cancelled earlier this year after 14 seasons with fans in uproar at the forthcoming show.
This is the first international NCIS spin-off and will have a mixture of American, Australian and British cast members.
Season one, episode one of NCIS: Sydney is titled Gone Fission and sees the Australian Federal Police (AFP) teaming up with NCIS to crack a fresh case after a petty officer winds up dead.
NCIS and the AFP will be reluctantly forced to crack the case with overlapping jurisdictions after the victim was working for the Navy on a vessel – which is technically American territory – but fell into the water at Sydney Harbour on Australian soil.
Here’s where you may have seen the cast members of NCIS: Sydney before.
