NCIS Sea­son 14 Satur­days (from 3 June) M-Net (*101) 19:30

NCIS (2003- cur­rent) is miss­ing se­ries reg­u­lar Michael Weatherly (Agent An­thony DiNozzo; Michael was cast in the lead role of drama se­ries Bull, 2016- cur­rent) in sea­son 14 but they’ve filled his shoes with three new­com­ers. “They bring a dif­fer­ent energy,” says lead star Mark Har­mon, who’s played Spe­cial Agent Gibbs since episode 1. “Ob­vi­ously our fans – and we as a team – miss Michael but we’re ad­just­ing and that will take time.” Rocky Car­roll, who plays Leon Vance, adds that “work­ing with three new ac­tors has made this sea­son feel like a new show”.

WEL­COME TO THE TEAM

Fed­eral Agent Alex Quinn (Jennifer Es­pos­ito, Cal­ista Raines in dram­edy Mistresses, 2013-2016) joins the NCIS crew af­ter work­ing as a Fed­eral Law En­force­ment Train­ing In­struc­tor for the last 15 years. Field Agent Nick Tor­res (Wilmer Valder­rama, Don Car­los Madri­gal in sci-fi se­ries From Dusk Till Dawn, 2014-2016) went miss­ing while deep un­der­cover and while he’s good at his job, his men­tal state is a con­cern and he could be a loose cannon. Bri­tish Intelligence Of­fi­cer Clay­ton Reeves (Duane Henry, sol­dier Gareth Broad­hurst on med­i­cal drama show 2000-cur­rent) worked with DiNozzo in the UK and adds a phys­i­cal­ity to the NCIS job, hav­ing been an elite sol­dier for the Bri­tish SIS.

NO FAT LADY SINGING

Michael Weatherly leav­ing the show kick­started ru­mours in the mid­dle of sea­son 14 that Mark was quit­ting too. “Every­thing comes to an end, that is a fact,” said the ac­tor. “But for now it’s im­por­tant to en­joy this while we’re ex­pe­ri­enc­ing it.” He’s also re­vealed that while his con­tract is for an­other sea­son, so are a num­ber of other cast mem­bers and “I don’t see any rea­son to quit right now”.
