NCIS Season Premiere: First Photo, Official Synopsis

at . Comments

It may be the most anticipated season premiere of the fall, though for a very depressing reason:

Cote de Pablo will exit NCIS following the September 24th opener.

And in anticipation of the episode, CBS has released the first photo from "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot," along with an official network synopsis. First, check out Mark Harmon (as Gibbs, of course) alongside special guest star Colin Hanks, who will portray Department of Defense IG Investigator Richard Parsons.

As for what fans can expect from the NCIS Season 11 premiere, aside from a lot of tear-shedding? Here is the CBS description:

An explosion at a D.C. event that results in a casualty connected to the agency changes Parsons’ perspective on Gibbs and the NCIS team.  Meanwhile, without badges, DiNozzo and McGee investigate the case as civilians, despite the case’s dangerous ties to each of them.

UPDATE: CBS has also released the first official premiere promo:

Matt Richenthal is the Editor in Chief of TV Fanatic. Follow him on Twitter and on Google+.


I give NCIS 6 or so eps before the ratings start to drop.


Just makes me very sad to know she’s going, but I wish Cote nothing but good things. The cast is such a great ensemble and her chemistry with MW is off the charts. I will miss her interaction with him the most. I have a feeling the writers will have Ziva go into hiding – that way they leave the door open for possible future appearances. I can see Tiva having a convo about soul mates, etc. I’m going to have my tissues ready.


They kill Ziva off I wont watch anymore
she deserves way more than just to be killed off
that is all this writer knows how to do kill off every really loved and really liked female main character


CBS- PLEASE do not kill her off- I can understand her leaving to a new intersts, but the team can't handle another heartache like with Kate that would include Gibbs!!! please just let her walk out to the sunset!!!


Maybe they're going to have Ziva leave to become the new head of Moosaad (sp?).


And Tony was in his own apartment when he was running for cover from the shooting, hence Vance talking about going after or targeting my agents. Could be going after Tony is a way to get to Ziva, but that's a guess on my part...


Tom Morrow is the one injured. Parsons joins forces with Gibbs. We will see Borin, Gibbs' dad, and Tony's dad this season; and some how go back to Tony's Baltimore days- this is not wishful thinking, it has been reported by Glasberg and the first video spoiler. I am sure Ducky's dad is deceased since his mother was almost 100 when she died.


I'm guessing Tobias is the one close to the agency who gets killed.


What if Colin Hanks join Tony team seem like Tony and Colin got along okay What if Ziva is the reason for the explosion at a D.C. event


Is it possible to have Colin Hanks be a huge part in the entire season?
Is it possible to have Gibb's dad back this season?
Could we meet:
Abby's brother and a possible love interest?
Palmer's child?
Ducky's ex girlfriend and dad?

Bishop: What's with the two month cutoff? Abby's sabotaging herself. I've seen stuff like this before. We have to talk to her.

Tony: One other question, I know you're an expert in English history. And I was just wondering, have you ever heard of Archibald Drummond, the 17th Earl of Trent?
Ducky: The Earl of Trent. No, I can't say I have. Why?
Tony: I was just wondering. Thanks.
