Scott Wolf (Party of Five, 90210, Everwood, V) is coming on board NCIS in a role producers say will contain “surprises” in the show's ninth season premiere September 20.
As the potentially recurring character of FBI Agent Casey Stratton, Wolf “will play an important role in this year’s season opener,” Gary Glasberg reveals to TV Line.
The show's executive producer adds, “Who he is and how he influences the NCIS team will come in due time, but I can promise you some unexpected surprises.”
The new season will pick up four months later, then flash back to the events transpiring after the Season 8 finale, when Tony was given his mysterious mission.
“We’re going to start the show in real time, in September, look back all the way to May, and then jump through the assignment Tony was on,” Glasberg says.
NCIS won't waste any time setting the stage for an explosive season, either.
“I highly, highly recommend you not miss the first five minutes of the show,” Glasberg implores, adding that, in no uncertain terms, “it is going to start with a bang.”
