NCIS - Season Nine Scoops
NCIS, everyone's favourite naval criminal investigative series, returns to screens in the US in September for it's ninth year. Wow. Good going for a show which began life as a JAG spin-off and seemingly comparable to CSI. Whatever people's thoughts back then, it has turned into a wonderfully enjoyable series. I for one am looking forward to its return!
Scott Wolf, of Party of Five and Spin City fame will be joining the show as an FBI agent named Casey Stratton.
As the potentially recurring character of FBI Agent Casey Stratton, Wolf “will play an important role in this year’s season opener,” executive producer Gary Glasberg tells TV Line. “Who he is and how he influences the NCIS team will come in due time, but I can promise you some unexpected surprises.”
Equally intriguing are the indications that the season will open with a pretty big bang (a la 24 Day five? I doubt half the cast will be wiped out...) whilst we will learn from flashbacks exactly what Tony's assignment - given to him in the final throes of season eight - was.
Mark September 20th if based in the US, otherwise look out for it on FX soon after in the UK.
