As far as we know, the first two installments of NCIS season 11 will orbit around Ziva's (Cota de Pablo) departure.
But how about the third episode and beyond?
NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg previewed what's ahead, read the spoilers below:
In the third episode we introduce, for instance, a woman in her 50s who is a few days away from retirement and just needs to fill the desk time. She, in theory, knew Gibbs all the way back to the days of Mike Franks. So we’re going to bring in people like that and have some fun with different characters. And then, hopefully, when people are comfortable enough, one will walk in and be The One.”
