“NCIS” Season 14 may be one cast member down, but the long-running CBS procedural has added not one but two new agents (and later three with the addition of MI6 Officer Clayton Reeves) to replace Michael Weatherly’s beloved character, Anthony DiNozzo. It takes an army to replace Weatherly!
The first promo of the Season 14 premiere, titled “Rogue,” was released by Entertainment Weekly and it shows a glimpse of new NCIS special agents Alexandra “Alex” Quinn (Jennifer Esposito) and Nicholas “Nick” Torres (Wilmer Valderrama) in action.
The synopsis states that Gibbs’ (Mark Harmon) team will investigate a deadly car explosion in Washington that connects to Torres. The undercover agent had disappeared six months ago during an assignment in Argentina.
The synopsis also reveals that Gibbs will ask Quinn to shadow his team after rejecting eight agents for DiNozzo’s position.
Watch the preview of episode 1 and find out the three things we learned from it below:
1. Gibbs Asks Agent Quinn To Stick Around
Mark Harmon’s character definitely sees something in Quinn and asks her to stick around while his team investigates a new case. She will definitely be sticking around for a long time!
2. Agent Nick Torres Has Never Been On A Team Before
Valderrama’s “NCIS” character has always been an undercover agent and undercover agents almost always work alone. Emily Wickersham’s Bishop aptly tells Torres that “[There’s a] first time for everything.”
3. Jennifer Esposito’s Character Adds A Dash Of Goofiness
DiNozzo kept “NCIS” a light drama series by adding a dollop of humor with his goofiness. Even in the most intense scenes and difficult cases, the senior agent was able to intersperse the show with fun moments. From the preview, it looks like Alex Quinn will take on his silly side.
Furthermore, CBS announced that Season 14 will reveal information about Gibbs' past when two marines are beaten in his hometown. Fans will meet Jackson Gibbs, his father, and he will spill stories about the team leader's past.
Catch the “NCIS” Season 14 premiere on Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 8 p.m. EDT on CBS.
