Sarah Jane Morris to Appear on NCIS Season Premiere

at . Comments

Sarah Jane Morris, who ruffled plenty of feathers among NCIS agents and fans last season as Special Agent E.J. Barrett, will be returning to the show this fall.

It's not clear how long she'll stick around, but at the very least, she'll appear in the Season 9 premiere September 20. True to form, she'll keep us guessing.

“Sarah Jane Morris will be coming back, but what our NCIS Agents need from EJ might surprise everyone,” NCIS executive producer Gary Glasberg teased.

Like Tony, we still don't know quite what to make of E.J.

“People should expect the unexpected," Glasberg said, adding that in typical NCIS fashion, "a lot of questions will be answered in the first episode and there will be plenty of fun, intriguing story tidbits layered in that will resurface all season long.”

How do you think EJ's return plays into Tony's task? Will she help unite or further divide the team? Will she stick around beyond this episode? Should she?

We look forward to hearing your thoughts on all of the above topics (follow this link for even more NCIS Season 9 spoilers). Sound off in the comments!
