NCIS Season 12 Episode 1, as previously reported, will find Gibbs and McGee in Russia, as they attempt to extricate a key source and end up meeting ta mercenary/new adversary, played by Alex Veadov.

It's conceivable this storyline bleeds into the show's spinoff, NCIS: New Orleans, and that Gorn also shows up on that series.

Both NCIS programs premiere on Tuesday, September 23.
