NCIS Sneak Peek: Meet the New Girl!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Next week marks the start of a new chapter on NCIS, as Emily Wickersham joins the cast. She's not Cote de Pablo's replacement, per se, but she is her successor.

Comparisons will be made because she's occupying a series regular spot that became available when Ziva was written off the show on NCIS Season 11 Episode 2.

Her character, Eleanor "Ellie" Bishop, will the be judged by the very high standards of the audience, but NCIS' producers clearly like what she brings to the table.

Next Tuesday, after discovering the Secretary of the Navy was bugged during a confidential briefing, NSA Analyst Bishop partners with the NCIS team.

It turns out she predicted the security breach in exact detail two years ago, and inevitably her expertise in the field lands her a full-time gig under Gibbs.

Check out the promo for NCIS Season 11 Episode 9, "Gut Check," below ...

Why isn't this board censoring Michael? His remarks are rude, inflammatory and exceptionally mean. Why is this being allowed to continue? I have inocuous comments "held for review" that never see the light of day but everyone of his vulgar posts are published. Ban this person now!

Excuse me? Michael writes terrible things about Cote/Ziva and anyone who is her fan and you have the nerve to call me mean because I think it is inappropriate behavior and language? You took one remark he said, which I called him on. I have no problem with anyone not wanting to watch naked people and sex! The problem is that he accused me and other Ziva/TIVA fans of ONLY wanting that, which is stupid, rude and a total lie.Oh wait, I'll bet you are Michael's other persona.

Michael has been spreading his hate on this site for a few years best just try to ignore him although its not easy with the lies he writes,also he writes comments in another name but its not hard to find him out with his bad writing.

You are missing the point. Why is he allowed to continue to be able to post on a site that will "hold comments for review" when clearly his never are? I know he's an idiot and I am positive he has serious mental issues as well. I am angry at the managers of this site for allowing this written abuse to continue.

I totally agree with you. My comments are getting held for review too.

Janet such big talk for someone who hated season 1 and 2 and wish Gibbs and Ducky were no longer on the show

@ janet

What do you mean "he is put on this site"? Are you suggesting he is a plant? That the managers of this site are endorsing his actions? They could have at least selected someone who could spell and had decent grammar.

This may be a good thing. I loved Ziva and she is missed, but they do need a woman in the show. Good Luck!

NCIS is still #1 in the ratings. Welcome Emily Wickersham ! The show will definitely have a change and this may be a good asset.

If you aren't watching anymore why do you continue to read about the show and comment? Sounds like you're in denial. And although the show may not be your #1 anymore it still is Americas' # 1 drama.

@ Steve

hate to break it to you but the show is number one now it was not when cote was on

@ Michael

Clearly you have a math problem. The 2011-2012 season was not last year, it was the 2012-2013-which was the year of TIVA and strong Ziva oriented episode. This is the ONLY season where NCIS was consistently number one and Cote was heavily featured. In fact her episode arc "Shabbat Shalom" and "Shiva" were the highest rated episodes in the shows history. This year it has been beat by "The Big Bang Theory". So it is not always the No. 1 show of the week, only Tuesday nights.

NCIS was the number 1 TV show for the 2012-2013 TV season, so she helped make it number one.

Technically the show started its march to the top after RC arrived. It is still the #1 scripted drama, in viewers, and tied with Blacklist in the demo last two weeks live viewing. NCIS has been at the top since season 7 and may pull out another win this year, especially if Ellie turns out to be an interesting character. Smart witty and married, yeah!

@ PatrickC

No it was not it was for the 2011 2012 TV season but last year was their worse season since season 7

Another reason NOT to watch NCIS!

Why? so does think mean I can stop watching season 3 throw 10 because that pig cote on

@ Michael

I wish you would stop watching the show so you would quit posting to these boards. Your comments border on the psychotoc and you clearly have deep-rooted emotional problems that only a doctor and strong medication may possibly help. Go get help.

Sorry Diane, I was trying to reply to Michael with the comment above.. Not sure what happened there. I am not use to this new format on the TV Fanatic page so please disregard the @Diane symbol that the page added for me!

Michael, you are disgusting. To dislike a character is one thing, to make rude and hateful comments against Cote de Pablo just shows how immature and unbalanced you are. And FYI, the show has been number one for several years now. It was number one with Cote and it is number one without Cote. Facts are facts. Quit making up things to fit your own agenda. I am a Ziva fan but even I did not believe that it would fall in the ratings without her and it hasn't. See, it is perfectly easy to be reasonable. Maybe you should give it a try.

Just watched the promo and can't wait she seems like a really fun character.
