NCIS Season 12 Premiere: To Russia, Without Love

at . Comments

On the NCIS Season 12 premiere, Gibbs and McGee will be leaving on a jet plane.

Their plan is to be back again quickly, as the agents head to Russia to bring back a computer engineer with connections to important information... but what kind of season premiere would it be if everything went according to plan?

CBS has released the following photo from the opener, titled "Twenty Clicks," along with the official description.

Now, with the obligatory SPOILER WARNING in effect for NCIS Season 12 Episode 1, here's an idea of what viewers can expect on September 23:

Gibbs and McGee travel to Russia to safely escort home an NCIS computer engineer connected to classified intel, but their mission is compromised and they are forced to go off the grid while hunted by a Russian mercenary group.

Meanwhile, the team in D.C. frantically uses every asset and inter-agency contact they have in an attempt to locate their missing team members.
