Hope's character “is one that has tremendous importance in the NCIS world,” Glasberg teases of Sarah Porter, a high-level Navy official. “I can’t think of anyone I’d rather have joining us at this pivotal time than Leslie. We’re thrilled to have her.”

The significant episode in question will be titled “Past, Present, Future.”

NCIS Season 11, meanwhile, kicks off on Tuesday, September 24.
