About the show
NCIS is an American police drama TV series that follows a team of special agents from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. Guest starring Jon Cryer, Muse Watson, Daniel Zolghadri and Giles Matthey, season 13 premiered to a total of 18.2 million viewers on September 22, 2015 on CBS.
Based in Washington D.C., the Major Case Response Team at NCIS conducts criminal investigations that involve the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. It is the primary law enforcement unit of the U.S. Department of the Navy and, thus, investigates all major criminal offenses that are punishable under the Uniform Code of the Military Justice. Bomb situations, terrorist threats, kidnappings and murders of the military personnel – anything serious that happens within the Navy or Marine Corps is up to the MCRT, led by Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs, to solve.
Season 13 premieres with Gibbs fighting for his life aboard a Navy hospital ship after being shot, while DiNozzo and Joanna go to Shanghai to take down a terrorist cell. As usual, there is a lot of action and suspense involved in each episode, which is something that has kept the viewers glued to their television sets during NCIS seasons for years.
There has not been any news from CBS on whether the show will return for another season, but considering that it has been voted America’s favorite television series several years in a row, we believe that we will see NCIS Season 14 air in the summer-fall of 2016.
