NCIS Hawai’i star Sharif Atkins has landed his first role since the show’s cancellation in the new Apple TV+ series, Me.

Atkins, who portrayed Captain Norman ‘Boom Boom’ Gates in the CBS series, will star in the upcoming coming-of-age drama. Me centers on middle-schooler Ben, who must navigate a newly blended family while discovering he has superpowers.

“Throughout the 10-episode season, Ben embarks on a journey of self-discovery and learns what having superpowers truly means,” the synopsis explains. “He finds an ally in his stepsister, Max, who helps him harness these powers and uncover the secrets behind the mysteries and tragedies of his community… all while he tries to come to terms with what it means to be Ben.”

Atkins will play Darren Kennedy, joining a cast that includes Encounter’s Lucian-River Chauhan as Ben, Arrival’s Abigail Pniowsky, Second Chance’s Dilshad Vadsaria, Miss Juneteenth’s Amanda Reid, Pulse’s Jessy Yates, and Orange County’s Kyle Howard. The 10-part series, created by Vantage Point’s Barry L. Levy, is set to premiere on July 12.

NCIS: Hawai’i was canceled earlier this year after three seasons. CBS Entertainment’s Amy Reisenbach recently discussed the decision with Variety: “I’m a big fan of TV first, and I sympathize and relate to all the fans who are disappointed that these shows are ending,” she said. “But at the end of the day, our job at CBS is to make those really tough calls. We look at all the numbers, our future projections, and where we see opportunities for even bigger success on the schedule. And we make those tough decisions.”

Me will stream on Apple TV+ starting July 12.
