'NCIS' Season 13 Cast
NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service), season 13, is a a dramatic show with small doses of humor and action. This season starts off with the show's head cast member in danger. NCIS returns with the premiere episode titled "Stop the Bleeding" and the official synopsis reads: Gibbs fights for his life on a Navy hospital ship, while DiNozzo and Joanna go to Shanghai to take down the Calling. Don't worry though. Gibbs should be back in action soon. Showrunner Gary Glasberg told The Hollywood Reporter: So we pick up right on the heels of that, and Gibbs is rushed into surgery, where he connects with a Navy surgeon, played by Jon Cryer. We're very excited to have Cryer join the group for these episodes — there are a couple of more coming down the road ... He and Gibbs really connect, and then when Gibbs comes out of there, fans will really notice a change. You can't go through something this traumatic and not have it affect you, and it affects Gibbs emotionally and psychologically and physically, and that change will trickle down to the rest of the team. Actor Jon Cryer starts a multi-episode guest role as Gibbs' surgeon on the premiere. Episode two is titled "Personal Day" and the plot description states: When Gibbs asks the team to help DEA Agent Luis Mitchell with a case, DiNozzo makes a discovery about Gibbs' connection to the agent; Gibbs debts a new look.
