NCIS Season 14 will see the return of most of the cast members but will unfortunately say goodbye to a few. The police procedural drama has been confirmed for a 15th season as well and most of the cast members have signed on for the 2018 installment. So, who?s in and who?s out? And who is the new character to be introduced?
The NCIS Season 14 cast includes Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette), Leon Vance (Rocky Carroll), Donald Mallard (David McCallum), Timothy McGee (Sean Murray), and of course, Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon). They have also signed for Season 15, Movie News Guide reports, as most of the series regulars or main cast members have signed for a two-year contract.
However, the only main cast member who did not renew his contract is Michael Weatherly, who played Agent Anthony DiNozzo. The actor had joined the series since the very start in 2003 and made his exit at the Season 13 finale when he found out that he has a daughter with colleague Ziva David (Cote de Pablo), who is known to have died in Israel. He left the NCIS team to look for answers and care for their daughter. It is speculated that we will get some answers about what happened to Ziva David after the farmhouse explosion in the next installment, whether she survived or not.
But DiNozzo?s exit from the show might also mean the end for Ziva.
Who are the new members joining the team?
Following Weatherly?s departure from the series after 13 years, Wilmer Valderrama rejoins the crew and will play a former agent who, at some point, went AWOL in an undercover mission.
Another character to be introduced as possibly a series regular is Tess Monroe played by Sarah Clarke. She first appeared in a few episodes last season and will be filling the gap as a new series regular.
