NCIS has not yet been renewed for a 14th season by CBS, but the series is already planning ahead. According to TV Line, the long running series is looking to add two new regular cast members for next season – one could appear as early as the finale for the 13th season.
Earlier this month, it was revealed by Michael Weatherly that he was departing the series at the end of this season. These new additions to the cast are likely being made to fill the void left by his exit. Details for only one of the new arrivals is known at this time.
TV Line shared the details about a new female agent who will move from New York to D.C. to join Gibbs’ team:
“Described in the tentative casting breakdown as “quick-witted, sarcastic, shrewd” and “two parts bulldog, one part sweet kitten,” the G-woman can just as easily keep up with a group of politicians talking at a black-tie fundraiser as she can truck drivers at a roadside diner. In her mind, sleep and sex are “overrated” while a good martini and a rare bacon cheeseburger aren’t. A three-time divorcée (because the husbands apparently “can’t keep up with her”) who has no children, Tess is content acting as “Mamma Bear” to any co-worker who needs a shoulder to lean on. Just don’t make her angry, because that’s when she tends to ruffle even her superiors’ feathers.”
The series is looking for a “name” actress to take on the role. Any ideas on who you would like to join the cast of NCIS in this role? Tell us what you think.
