Making Of NCIS: Origins

According to a statement from Amy Reichenbach, they are thrilled and pleased to carry on the NCIS universe’s unexpected and distinctive expansion. In NCIS: Origins, viewers can anticipate Mark Harmon’s return to CBS to tell the intricate and enigmatic story of Leroy Jethro Gibbs’ formative years. This show will continue the rich history of this character by bringing back beloved characters and introducing new ones.  Even though Harmon left the role of Gibbs in 2021 after eighteen years, the narrative of his character is far from finished. Co-showrunners David J. North and Gina Lucita Monreal continued, saying that even the most ardent NCIS viewers will come to realize they are missing important details.

A teenage Leroy Jethro Gibbs begins his career as a newly minted special agent in the nascent NCIS Camp Pendleton office in the prequel, which takes set in 1991 before the events of NCIS. There, he forges his place on a gritty, motley squad commanded by NCIS veteran Mike Franks. Harmon will narrate the episodes but won’t be appearing on screen again as Gibbs. Together with his son Sean Harmon, the actor will also function as an executive producer. Sean will not be playing Young Gibbs this time around; he played the role on NCIS earlier.

Presently, North and Mark co-show run NCIS and serve as executive producers for the longest-running shows in the franchise.

Molino will play Gibbs’s playmate, Special Agent Lala Dominguez, a former Marine.
