Fans of NCIS: Los Angeles have relied on having Sunday nights to watch for the past fourteen years, though that's all about to change.

The fan-favorite show, which is both the first and longest-running spinoff of the longtime CBS series, is coming to an end on May 21st.

The ending to the police drama will feature a two-part finale, the first airing on May 14th, and after the very final episode, fans will get treated to a farewell special featuring cast interviews and plenty of behind-the-scenes moments from the last fourteen years.

After working together for over a decade, the cast has most certainly become like family, and in throwback photos from their very first years together, it seems it's an energy everyone has had from the start.

The original cast featured Chris O'Connell as G. Callen, LL Cool J as Sam Hanna, Linda Hunt as Hetty Lange, Daniela Ruah as Kensi Blye, and Barrett Foa as Eric Beale. Fan favorite Eric Christian Olsen, who plays Kensi's romantic counterpart Marty Deeks, guest starred at the end of season one and became a regular in season two.

Showrunner and executive producer R. Scott Gemmill reflected on the incoming conclusion to the show, and per Variety, he said: "Wrapping up a series is always bittersweet. We were blessed to have 14 seasons together, so bringing it to a satisfying end was extremely challenging after so many years."

He added: "Fortunately, CBS was gracious enough to give us an extra episode in order to send off our characters in a way befitting their stories that hopefully the fans find both satisfying and hopeful."
