Freshman spinoff dramas “NCIS: Hawai’i” and “FBI: International”, which are both capitalizing on their familiar brands, are now the first new series to be picked up for the full season. Once upon a time, a new network series would receive an initial 13-episode season (with a backend order of nine more episodes if picked up for the full season, taking it to 22). The Eye net has not said how many additional episodes it has ordered.
