With or without Gibbs, this season appears to be historic.
With hundreds upon hundreds of TV shows airing in any given year, it’s hard to believe that the middle of summer could be so devoid of entertainment, but here we are. (After all, one can only survive Stranger Things’ massive fourth season finale so many times.) Thankfully, many of the fall’s biggest and most-watched shows, including NCIS and its beloved ensemble, are about to begin filming. The CBS procedural drama began production for Season 20 as one of the few scripted series to have remained in primetime for so long, and stars like Wilmer Valderrama were thrilled to share the news with fans.
Fans will be able to see Torres, McGee, Knight, and others again when NCIS returns for its twentieth season on CBS in September, but the cast and crew must first bring the episodes to life. So you can bet the network was quick to celebrate the latest production start for the network’s most-watched drama year after year. Check out the following CBS Instagram post:
While we give that post a thumbs up for getting the NCIS fanbase excited about new episodes being worked on behind the scenes, the images seen in the post aren’t exactly fresh. We’ll go to Wilmer Valderrama’s Instagram for something more recent, where he shared a fun and easy-peasy video with his co-stars.
Though Katrina Law was joking about catching one of the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted in Season 20, her co-stars appeared to be completely serious when they said that the upcoming episodes will feature moments and elements that NCIS fans “have never seen before,” according to Brian Dietzen. (Perhaps a steamy romance involving Jimmy and Knight?) They’re going to surprise us, according to Diona Reasonover. Your guess is as good as mine as to what the creative team has in store.
While Brian Dietzen was promoting Season 20’s big surprises and unexpected moments, his own Instagram post focused on something that fans would be surprised to see Jimmy lacking in upcoming episodes.
Brian Dietzen and Diona Reasonover were front and center in a video shared by the latter NCIS star, dressed in their signature lab coats and wearing Jimmy’s glasses for both business and pleasure. The best part of this post, in my opinion, is that Reasonover appears to be unfamiliar with the game 20 Questions.
At this point, neither co-star Sean Murray nor Gary Cole have shared any amusing posts about NCIS returning to production. But it appears that the latter spent the last week wrapping up filming for the final season of Paramount+’s The Good Fight, with co-creator Robert King marking the occasion.
While we already know that the aforementioned actors make up the majority of NCIS’ core unit, given that Season 20 will be unpredictable and a landmark in its own right, you can bet fans will be clamoring as hard as ever for Mark Harmon’s Gibbs to return, which isn’t out of the question. In the same vein, the fact that Bull has concluded technically allows Michael Weatherly to reprise his role as Tony DiNozzo. So stay tuned for more information on that front.
Season 20 of NCIS will debut on CBS on Monday, September 19, at 9:00 p.m. ET. While we wait to see how things go for the special agents, all 19 previous seasons are available to stream with a Paramount+ subscription, and our 2022 TV premiere schedule will inform viewers about all the other major shows premiering this fall and beyond.
