CBS’ police procedural television series NCIS Season 14 is set to premiere on September 20 with new characters and other changes. The last season saw the exit of Tony DiNozzo, played by Michael Weatherly, but the new season has brought a few new faces who will remain at the forefront of NCIS affairs.
“The intent was to really enter Season 14 with something new, and move the show forward, and try some things, and do something different,” TVGuide.com quoted executive producer Gary Glasberg as saying. “It’s a fun new direction for the cast and for the writers, and it feels pretty fresh.”
The new faces that will appear on NCIS Season 14 include Wilmer Valderrama, Jennifer Esposito, and Duane Henry.
Henry, who plays MI6 Officer Clayton Reeves, has briefly appeared at the end of last season.
Valderrama plays Special Agent Nick Torres; Esposito, Special Agent Alexandra Quinn. Both characters will be introduced in NCIS Season 14 premiere.
Torres, a deep-cover undercover agent, went missing for six months on an undercover mission in Argentina. He encounters enemies but is rescued by Gibbs and Bishop. Torres and Quinn join Gibbs in the premiere episode.
The series will eventually unfold its plot for the season over the next few episodes. It will determine how the seating in the squad room will be arranged following the major shake-up. The team will solve a number of cases that include a bomb planted in Quantico, the sudden death of a marine sergeant, and a long-running theft ring.
“It feels like we’ve been here for a long time already,” Valderrama was quoted as saying by E! News. “I love these people. They’re so incredible, they’re so empowering and crazy-talented. So it’s been fun to go out there and swing with the big boys!”
The titles of the first few episodes of the series have been released by the CBS. They are Rogue, Being Bad, and Privileged Information.
