The Futon Critic is reporting that CBS has ordered additional episodes of NCIS, NCIS: New Orleans, and Hawaii Five-0. Both NCIS shows have received two additional episodes, bringing their orders to 24 episodes, while Five-0‘s order increases by one episode to 24, as well. They join fellow procedural NCIS: Los Angeles in producing 24 episodes, whereas veterans Scorpion, Madam Secretary, and Blue Bloods are all stuck at 22.

Of NCIS‘s 15 seasons, only the 2007-08 campaign, interrupted by the Writer’s Strike, had less than 23 episodes. New Orleans has also had at least 23 episodes every season, whereas Hawaii Five-0 has been producing at least 24 since 2013-14. Word of their extensions also come before CBS makes a decision on whether to give a back order to Wisdom of the Crowd, plagued by Jeremy Piven’s sexual harassment allegations; late premiere S.W.A.T., which has done solid business; and underwhelming Monday comedy 9JKL.

These aren’t the first extensions for established shows this season, as ABC gave its traditional episode boosts to a majority of its comedies, as well as Grey’s Anatomy.

NCIS and NCIS: New Orleans air Tuesdays on CBS, at 8:00 and 10:00 respectively. Hawaii Five-0, meanwhile, airs Fridays at 9:00.
