TV Plus (South Africa) - - 21 NOVEMBER -

There were a lot of good­byes in sea­son 11 of ac­tion series NCIS (2003-cur­rent) in 2015. Ziva David (Cote de Pablo) left her boyfriend Tony Di Nozzo (Michael Weatherly) be­hind in episode 2 (19 April 2015) and geeky Ti­mothy McGee (Sean Mur­ray) was heart­bro­ken when his girl­friend Delilah Field­ing (Margo Harsh­man) packed her bags for Dubai in episode 20 (23 Au­gust 2015). Plus, there was the sad death of Spe­cial Agent Gibbs’s (Mark Har­mon) fa­ther Jack­son (Ralph Waite) in episode 24 (20 Septem­ber 2015). But that was then and sea­son 12 is now…

“Sea­son 12 [it aired in the US in 2014] is all about bring­ing the team to­gether and sort of keep­ing the fam­ily go­ing,” ex­plains for­mer ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Gary Glas­berg. Tonight’s episode 1 starts with a bang when Gibbs and McGee are stranded be­hind en­emy lines in Rus­sia and the sea­son’s first new bad­die is re­vealed. Alex Veadov (Sergei Mish­nev) is go­ing to spend the sea­son mak­ing the NCIS team’s life a mis­ery, but they’ll also have to deal with a ter­ror­ist group known as The Call­ing, who’re re­cruit­ing teens on­line.

Luck­ily it’s not all war for the crew – love is go­ing to find Chief Foren­sic Sci­en­tist Abby (Pauley Per­rette) when she meets cop Burt Moore (Jo­hann Urb) in episode 2 (28 Novem­ber) and they find a com­mon in­ter­est: tat­toos. And while Tony isn’t quite over Ziva just yet, he does get his charm mojo back when FBI Spe­cial­ist Leia Pen­der­gast (Stephanie Ja­cob­sen) crosses his path in episode 4 (12 De­cem­ber).

And what would an ac­tion show be with­out a lit­tle tear­jerker? Two ma­jor char­ac­ters’ fates will be hang­ing by a thread in episodes 23 and 24 (April and May 2017) NB! NCIS was re­newed for sea­sons 14 and 15 in Fe­bru­ary 2016.
