An NCIS: Origins cast video was released to get potential viewers excited.

This new show from the NCISverse is taking some risks, as the producers hope fans want to see stories from younger versions of some important characters.

Flashback episodes of NCIS went over very well, with stories like when Leroy Jethro Gibbs first met Donald Mallard. They even had Mark Harmon’s son (Sean Harmon) play a younger version of Gibbs.

The idea to do flashbacks has been fleshed out into a full series, with episodes of NCIS: Origins debuting in Fall 2024.

The new show gets the 10/9c timeslot on Mondays that has been vacated by NCIS: Hawai’i. Unfortunately, the Vanessa Lachey NCIS spin-off was canceled by CBS.

NCIS Season 22 will air on Mondays at 9/8c in the fall, serving as the lead-in for this new prequel show.

To spur interest and show the faces of the NCIS: Origins stars, a video was released to advertise the new show. As a reminder, the show is set in 1991.

The video is shared below and features most main characters, including actor Kyle Schmid sporting a new beard to play the younger Mike Franks.
