NCIS: Los Angeles has bumped up a long-time recurring cast member to series regular for season 13. Gerald McRaney has played retired Adm. Hollis Kilbride on the CBS drama since 2014.
According to Deadline, executive producer R. Scott Gemmill said the following about the move:
“When you have an actor of Gerald McRaney’s caliber, you do everything you can to make sure you get him as often as possible. Admiral Kilbride has been an esteemed part of our universe for seven years now and we look forward to viewers seeing him come in and shake up our NCIS: LA world.”
Chris O’Donnell, LL Cool J, Linda Hunt, Daniela Ruah, Eric Christian Olsen, Medalion Rahimi, and Caleb Castille star in the series. NCIS: Los Angeles saw the exit of two series regulars — Renée Felice Smith and Barrett Foa — in the season 12 finale. Hunt was absent during much of the season, due to the pandemic.
A premiere date has not yet been the upcoming season of the drama.
What do you think? Are you a fan of NCIS: Los Angeles on CBS? Do you plan to watch season 13?
Big huge fan. Loved the story lines, the cast, everything about it. Another show that pushed and showed the non-blood family ties. Like the ones I made in the military. This show had comedy, drama, action, great plots. I sure hope it stays on for more seasons of enjoyment.
What happened to the scripts? I feel like I’m being preached to and “educated” about social issues. And please bring back Anna and Arkády and some of the fun to the show.
NCIS LA is the only program I not only record but I purchase every season. S 13 has started off with an bang and I hope it will continue. Like others I enjoy Hetty and would like to see the story line between she and G continue but the Admiral is a wounderful addition. I would also like the relationship between Anna and G to grow, he needs to be happy. Chris O’Donnell and LL Cool J are remarkable and make this program and a loveable Bromance.
I absolutely love NCIS Los Angeles it is the very best show on TV I am enjoying season 13 so far. I hope there will be many more seasons to come . I love all the cast especially G Callen he is my favorite cast member love all the banter he has with Sam. I have all the seasons on dvd and watch them all the time thank-you CBS for this fantastic show.

Yes I love NCIS Los Angeles it’s the best show on CBS and I am definitely going to watch Season 13 . Binge watching all the seasons again.
I’m glad to see CBS is keeping an excellent show. Moving Seal Team to a streaming service has made me really wonder who is in charge at CBS.
