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.
