This team stands second to none when it comes to breaking codes. Searching for treasure in the new #NCIS: https://t.co/JPkbXwEfXL pic.twitter.com/DGOZOJ0oxs- NCIS (@NCIS CBS) December 10, 2020 Special Agent Timothy McGee’s (Sean Murray) and his wife Delilah’s (Margo Harshman) holiday in the Bahamas takes a risky turn as it turns out that there are connections to the island in an NCIS case involving a dead escape room boss. Meanwhile, when his quest for Fornell (Joe Spano) leads to blood, Gibbs (Mark Harmon) fears the worst. The attempts of Gibbs and Fornell to locate the drug kingpin responsible for the overdose of Fornell’s daughter reach a climax in the second episode of the night, “Head of the Snake,”
Gibbs and NCIS Director Vance (Rocky Carroll) also introduce the team to a case with dangerous consequences.
Fans may want to enjoy a little nostalgia to tide them through the break with a few weeks to wait before the return of NCIS.
And with a look back at “JAG,” the series that gave us NCIS, what better way to do that.
Premiere of JAG in 1995
NCIS, which debuted in 2003, is currently the second longest-running television drama series (after Law & Order: SVU) and has inspired two spinoffs: NCIS: Los Angeles and NCIS: New Orleans.
But casual fans quickly forget that a spin-off from another long-running series, JAG, is NCIS itself.
JAG was a legal drama about a group of Judge Advocates, or lawyers serving in the Judge Advocate General’s Office of the Navy.
The series debuted on NBC in 1995 and then moved to CBS until ending its ten-year run in 2005 for the next nine seasons. In two JAG episodes from Season 8, which acted as a backdoor pilot for NCIS, major NCIS characters – including Gibbs, Anthony DiNozzo Jr. (Michael Weatherley) and Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette) – were introduced.
