The NCIS: Los Angeles cast for Genesis features a lot of guest stars that should add excitement to the new episode.

This new installment is NCIS: LA Season 13, Episode 17, and it will have the team dealing with a new case while Callen simultaneously follows a lead from his past.

Even though the season finale arrives at the end of May, there is a lot of new content left to debut, including a double feature of NCIS: LA episodes on May 1.

But first, a brand-new episode called Genesis is going to arrive on Sunday, April 24. The promo didn’t give away too much of what the team is going to be dealing with, but it all hints at Kilbride being more worried about Callen.
