Ziva’s Possible Return and 6 More Teases for NCIS’ New Season

Posted by admin with No Comments

As NCIS chugs into its 12th season Tuesday (8/7c, CBS), creator Gary Glasberg says he’s taking a back-to-basics approach for the upcoming year. After so many major event episodes last season — the departure of Ziva (Cote de Pablo), the introduction of Bishop (Emily Wickersham), the NCIS: New Orleans backdoor pilot, and a tribute episode to Ralph Waite — Glasberg says he’s excited to be entering a more character-driven run.

“Season 12 is all about bringing the team together and sort of keeping the family going, and really emphasizing the group,” Glasberg — who’s also serving as showrunner on NCIS: New Orleans now — tells TVGuide.com. “We made a deliberate decision at the end of [Season] 11 to really do that.”

With no cliff-hanger to resolve, NCIS gets off to a fresh start on Tuesday’s season premiere, which finds Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and McGee (Sean Murray) heading to Russia to escort an NCIS computer engineer home safely. But they quickly find themselves the targets of a local mercenary group, putting both their lives and classified intel at risk.

What else can fans expect from Season 12? And will Ziva ever be back? Here are seven teases from Glasberg and star Michael Weatherly.

1. Love is in the air: It looks like Dinozzo (Weatherly) is finally ready to put #Tiva behind him — and Weatherly, for one, couldn’t be happier. “I think he’s moved past the wounded bird [phase],” the actor says. “It’s really exciting. I don’t think I’ve been this excited since maybe Season 3. … I think Season 12 is going to be a revelatory year. He’s probably going to have more fun than he’s ever had.” Enter Leia Pendergast (Stephanie Jacobsen), a former U.S. marshal-turned-FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force leader who partners with Tony on a case … and then in real life. Her introduction will happen around Episode 4.” And as for “McGilah,” though Delilah (Margo Harshman) may have accepted a job offer in Dubai, don’t think that’s going to put the kibosh on her and McGee’s relationship for good, Glasberg cautions.

2. A new villain: The villain Gibbs and McGee encounter in their trip to Russia could have a very long reach. “[The premiere] introduces a character that’ll carry through the rest of the season, and [will] even potentially overlap into the New Orleans show as well,” Glasberg teases.

3. We meet Bishop’s husband! Little is known about Ellie Bishop’s personal life, other than the fact that she is married. In Season 12, viewers will finally get a glimpse of Bishop’s husband, Jake, who works with the NSA. It’s likely that he’ll be introduced under the guise of helping out with a case or two, according to Glasberg. “It’ll give us some more insight into her, into her background,” he promises.

4. Abby meets her match? There will be plenty of crossover between NCIS and its newest sibling, NCIS: New Orleans — and one of the episodes will likely feature Abby (Pauley Perrette) meeting her NOLA counterpart, lab assistant Sebastian (Rob Kerkovich). “You will absolutely not only watch them interact for the first time, but there’ll probably be multiple times after that as well,” Glasberg promises.

5. A Duckling story: Episode 3 of the season (airing Oct. 7) will focus on Ducky’s (David McCallum) backstory. Ducky and Bishop head to London to track down a childhood best friend of Ducky’s who has a connection to a case. Adam Campbell will guest-star as a younger version of Ducky.

6. Gibbs gets multiple blasts from the past: The “one unnamed ex-wife of Gibbs” will probably make an appearance in one episode, Glasberg says. At the same time, Gibbs’ father (Waite) may be gone, but he won’t be forgotten. “There’s no doubt that there’s emotional resonance that he carries with him, and those moments will appear throughout the season,” Glasberg says. “I don’t think it’ll affect him day to day at work necessarily, but there’ll certainly be characters and moments that’ll come up that’ll be impacted by what he went through.”

7. The return of Ziva? Tiva fans — all may not be lost. Both Glasberg and Weatherly say they’d welcome a story line that brings Cote de Pablo back to NCIS. With the actress having signed on to the upcoming miniseries The Dovekeepers, she’ll remain in the CBS family — but will Ziva and Tony be reunited? “We didn’t kill her,” Glasberg hints. “So, Ziva’s still out there and she’s still alive. … We’ll just have to see what happens.” Adds Weatherly: ” I am sure they will see each other again, and I’m deeply fascinated by what kind of fireworks would result. I absolutely know that it would not be without some explosive quality.”

NCIS returns Tuesday at 8/7c on CBS. What are you most looking forward to this season?

NCIS Casts 24 Alum Marisol Nichols as a Blast from DiNozzo’s Past

Posted by admin with No Comments

Agent Tony DiNozzo will get a very pretty blast from his Philadelphia past, when 24 alum Marisol Nichols guest-stars on CBS’ NCIS.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Nichols will appear in an upcoming episode, titled “Parental Guidance Suggested,” as Zoë Keates, an ATF Special Agent who years ago worked with DiNozzo when both were with the Philly PD.

The pair’s paths cross anew when NCIS and ATF find themselves both tracking the same terrorist.

In addition to her Season 6 run as 24‘s Nadia Yassir, Nichols’ TV credits include GCB, The Gates and, yes, an Oct. 2010 episode of NCIS: Los Angeles (as Callen’s ex-CIA partner).

TV’s most watched drama, NCIS opens Season 12 this Tuesday at 8/7c.

NCIS’ Sean Murray Previews ‘Classic’ Season 12, McGee/Gibbs Bonding

Posted by admin with No Comments

Coming off of what showrunner Gary Glasberg has called a “tumultuous” Season 11 — during which two casting changes took place, the seeds were planted for a New Orleans spin-off and the passing of Ralph Waite was written in — CBS’ NCIS is back in “classic” form, Sean Murray tells TVLine.

The Season 12 opener (airing Tuesday at 8/7c) thrusts Murray’s McGee into a Russian hot zone with boss man Gibbs (played by Mark Harmon), paving the way for the introduction of a new adversary. Here, Murray previews all that and more.

TVLINE | Where do things pick up when the season opens up on Tuesday night? Are McGee and Gibbs already in the thick of things?
There’s an Internet technician, an IT guy, who’s in Russia and is supposed to be delivering the body of his dead uncle back to the States. Gibbs is sent to go ahead and escort him, and he picks McGee to go along with him. And then it all happens pretty quickly. Right from the get-go they’re in Russia and in a helicopter.

TVLINE | And then things go sideways?
[Laughs] And things go sideways, yes.

TVLINE | At least looking at the previews alone it looks like quite the fun two-hander for you and Mark.NCIS Season 12 McGee Gibbs
It was. And Mark and I had a really good time doing it. I mean, we had long hours, it was a lot of outside, night, exterior nights, and forests…. But it was a good episode. We wanted to kind of connect, to show the relationship between McGee and Gibbs a little bit more, and McGee kind of in a little bit of a more mature light, if you know what I mean.

TVLINE | Because when around Tony, there’s the temptation to goof around.
Exactly.

TVLINE | How would you say the McGee-Gibbs dynamic has evolved over all these years?
Well, I think Gibbs has a lot of trust in McGee and allows him to take part in a number of things that the old McGee would never be allowed to do. He has run interrogations and has taken the lead on a number of investigations, and just has more to give. Gibbs is almost a father figure to us, and we’re all like his children in a way, so I think that the bond between them has sort of tightened as McGee has “grown up.” There’s been a lot of character progression, especially from the early years. I mean, if you see some of the old episodes, McGee is a different guy.

TVLINE | All told, what is your favorite relationship to play on the show?
Hmm. That’s a tough one, because it’s totally different with everyone. In Abby’s lab, McGee is a lot more kind of loosey-goosey and relaxed NCIS Season 12than he is reporting in the squad room. I really like the McGee/Tony relationship a lot; it’s one of my favorite things on the show. Bantering with Michael [Weatherly], he can be very inventive, with lots of ad-libbing, and I appreciate that. It makes for good reactions, and sometimes you get some fairly good moments out of that.

TVLINE | I know Gary Glasberg was really excited about bringing on Alex Veadov as this season’s adversary. How would you describe this recurring Big Bad?
Oh, he’s a good one. I actually just saw the [premiere] for the first time yesterday — we were kind of separated while we were shooting, so I didn’t have a lot of scenes with him — but yeah, he’s a tremendously nice guy, and when I saw the episode I thought he was just perfect. He talks very kind of low and has a real foreboding presence…. I think we got a good one.

TVLINE | Gary also has talked about how last season had to serve many different masters, and he wanted to really get back to the “classic” NCIS formula with 12. Is that something you’re seeing in the early episodes?
Definitely. We’re sort of doing the more classic, serialized version of NCIS, whereas last year we had a lot of things to sort of address with Ziva leaving and the entrance of the Bishop character. There was a lot going on last year.

TVLINE | What is the state of the McGee-Delilah union? I have to imagine she’s worried about him over there in Russia. Does she get mentioned?
I believe she does get mentioned — if not the premiere, in the second episode. But there’s plenty of talk about Delilah (played by Margo Harshman), and I think we are going to see her at some point this year. That relationship will continue, as far as I know.

TVLINE | What kind of surprises does the Ducky flashback episode (airing Oct. 7) have for us? Anything that made you go, “Wow, I didn’t expect that”?
Well, just that “going to England” in the ‘60s with these flashbacks was really fun. The team and everyone in production worked really hard on trying to make it authentic, and Adam Campbell (Mixology) as a twentysomething Ducky is just perfect. He did such a great job, not mimicking but sort of showing us Ducky as a young guy, and it works. He looks a lot like him, he sounds like him…..

TVLINE | I can almost hear, like, Austin Powers music playing in the background as you describe the episode.
[Laughs] Exactly. That’s something that was fun, to read and see happen.

Ask Ausiello: Jim Beaver’s Episode?

Posted by admin with No Comments

Question: In what episode of NCIS Season 12 will Jim Beaver be guest-starring? —JP
Ausiello:
Though we don’t have the episode number, we do have a title — “The San Dominick.” And Matt Mitovich has learned that it’s the same episode that brings back fan fave Diane Neal as CGIS Agent Borin. The plot: During a joint NCIS/Coast Guard training exercise, Gibbs and Borin find a body floating in the water. Once it’s determined that the deceased was a crew member aboard a ship run by a Captain Tom O’Rourke (Supernatural alum Beaver’s role), the two decide to pay a visit to the vessel some 60 nautical miles away, to further investigate the “man overboard” situation.

Mega Buzz: NCIS SceNav Sarah Porter

Posted by admin with No Comments

I would love any NCIS spoilers you might have. — Laura
It’s been a while since we checked in with SecNav Sarah Porter, no? Fear not: Leslie Hope will reprise her role in an episode slated to air in mid-October (the same episode that will introduce Stephanie Jacobsen as DiNozzo’s new love interest). The episode, appropriately titled “Choke Hold,” finds the team investigating the bizarre strangling of a Navy research scientist. Hmm, sounds like the kind of case SecNav can really get her hands around!
