NCIS Returns to Fox in the UK – 8th Jan 2016
It used to be the case that it was all about the CSI’s. Now they’re all but dead (expect to say goodbye to CSI:Cyber this season), it’s all the NCIS, and the daddy show is premiering with it’s 13th season to FOX UK on the 8th Jan 2016.
NCIS follows the Naval Criminal Investigative Service as they solve murders and investigate acts of espionage and terrorism. Former marine gunnery sergeant and unrivalled investigator NCIS Special Agent Gibbs (Mark Harmon) leads an amusingly dynamic team which includes NCIS Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly), an ex-homicide detective whose instincts in the field are unparalleled, NCIS Special Agent Timothy McGee (Sean Murray), an MIT graduate with a brilliance for computers; and the newest member of the team, Probationary Agent Eleanor “Ellie” Bishop (Emily Wickersham) who specializes in international threat assessment and global preparation. All crime with Navy or Marine Corps ties is handled by Gibbs and his team.
The world’s most-watched drama, season 13 takes us straight back to the dramatic cliff-hanger which left viewers speculating the fate of Special Agent Gibbs. Last season the team travelled to the Middle East investigating ‘The Calling’, an international cyber terrorist group that recruits children through the internet. This mission resulted in the heroic death of Cyber Special Agent Ned Dorneget as he tried to evacuate a hotel rigged with explosives. With the team shaken up, Gibbs continued his mission to learn more about the terrorists. However his search was brought to an abrupt end when he was shot. The new series begins with Gibbs fighting for his life aboard a Navy hospital ship while DiNozzo and Joanna travel to Shangahi to try and take down ‘The Calling’. Will the team get a handle and take down these terrorists?
