Christopher Silber and Jan Nash, both heavily involved in the production of the show, commented on Black's departure.

They said: "We had an incredible run with Lucas Black and he was such an important part of our team NCIS: New Orleans . We are sad to see him, but we are happy that he will have more time to spend with his family. "
