Says NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg of the casting decision:

"After 12 seasons there was still one ex-wife to cast opposite Gibbs and we found her in the beautiful and talented Jeri Ryan. We’re all very excited to have Jeri join us for a storyline that’s chock full of surprises."

After taking a week off, NCIS Season 12 Episode 7 will air next Tuesday.

Ryan, meanwhile, will debut some time in early 2015.
