The fourteenth season of NCIS will premiere on 5USA on Monday April 9th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Created by Donald P. Bellisario & Don McGill, NCIS follows a team of investigators working for the Naval Criminal Investigative Service’s (NCIS) Major Case Response Team, which is led by veteran Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs. The drama series is produced by CBS Television Studios and stars Mark Harmon, Pauley Perrette, David McCallum, Sean Murray, Rocky Carroll, Brian Dietzen and Emily Wickersham.
The show’s fourteenth season will be the first without Michael Weatherly, who played Special Agent Tony DiNozzo since the two-part backdoor pilot on JAG. To fill the void left by his departure, Wilmer Valderrama and Jennifer Esposito have joined the cast, while Duane Henry has been upped to series regular status. In the opening episode, titled Rogue, the NCIS team investigates a deadly car explosion in D.C. that connects to NCIS Special Agent Nicholas “Nick” Torres (Valderrama), who disappeared six months ago while on a deep undercover assignment in Argentina. Meanwhile, Gibbs asks NCIS Special Agent Alexandra “Alex” Quinn (Esposito) to shadow his team after rejecting eight agents she instructed and referred for the open position.
