In this on-set snap, a crew member announces a production update and a new episode title for NCIS LA season 13.
Season 13 of NCIS: Los Angeles is now filming in the United States in preparation for the CBS drama’s widely anticipated return. With the premiere date set for October 10, Rick Tunell, the production manager, has delivered a significant new report on how things are progressing.
After the heartbreaking finish of season 12, the 13th season of NCIS: Los Angeles has a number of loose ends to tie up. With Nell (Renee Felice Smith) and Eric Beale (Barrett Foa) moving on to greener pastures and the future of Hetty (Linda Hunt) still up in the air, CBS viewers will have to wait until October 10 to see Marty Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) and Kensi Blye (Daniela Ruah) back in action. This hasn’t stopped members of the cast and crew from revealing details about what’s to come, including the latest episode three update from the show’s production manager.
After returning to work amid rigorous Covid limitations, the cast and crew of NCIS: LA have been routinely updating fans on how production is progressing.
Caleb Castille, who plays Devon Roundtree, released a funny compilation of snippets from the Los Angeles set on Instagram, while Medalion Rahimi, who plays Fatima Namazi, showed fans what it would be like if her character walked into Hetty’s shoes.
Tunell’s last update, though, revealed some more precise details on how production was progressing, with filming on episode three currently underway.
Tunell not only shared a photo from the episode’s filming location, which was situated near an eerie lake, but he also disclosed the episode’s title.
“The first shot was fired at 6:50 a.m. Tunell tweeted to his 1,489 Twitter followers, “Ep#1303,” with a snapshot of the place.
He then revealed the title of the episode: “‘Indentured.'” #ncisla #bestcrewinhollywood.” Day #2.
A sign points to the set’s catering section in the attached photo, while a number of rowing boats sit idle behind it.
It didn’t take long for NCIS: Los Angeles fans to react to the news, with many expressing their delight at the new information.
