Last year marked a significant milestone for the NCIS franchise as it ventured into new territory with NCIS: Sydney, its first international spinoff. The success of Sydney, now renewed for a second season, emboldened the franchise to explore new realms once again with NCIS: Origins, its inaugural prequel series. Set to premiere either later this year or in 2025, NCIS: Origins delves into the early days of Leroy Jethro Gibbs’ law enforcement career, with recent casting announcements shedding light on key roles.

Robert Taylor, known for his role in Longmire, steps into the shoes of Jackson Gibbs, portrayed by the late Ralph Waite in earlier NCIS episodes. Taylor’s portrayal of the younger Gibbs patriarch will be a recurring guest role, offering viewers insights into the complex relationship between Gibbs and his father. Alongside Taylor, Austin Stowell takes on the role of the young Leroy Jethro Gibbs, capturing the character’s formative years.

Joining the cast are Daniel Bellomy as Special Agent Granville “Granny” Dawson and Caleb Martin Foote as Special Agent Benjamin “Randy” Randolf. Bellomy’s character is a determined “probie,” aspiring to become a field agent, while Foote portrays the NCIS “golden boy” and a mentor figure to Gibbs. Their dynamic adds depth to the narrative, highlighting the early dynamics within the NCIS team.

In addition to the main cast, Mariel Molino, Kyle Schmid, and Tyla Abercrumbie round out the ensemble, portraying pivotal characters within Gibbs’ early career trajectory. Mark Harmon’s narration as the older Gibbs, coupled with his executive producer role alongside son Sean Harmon and showrunners David J. North and Gina Lucita Monreal, ensures continuity and authenticity within the NCIS universe.

NCIS: Origins promises to offer fans a compelling exploration of Gibbs’ origins, shedding light on pivotal relationships and formative experiences that shaped the iconic character. As anticipation builds for its premiere, fans can also look forward to a spinoff centered around Tony DiNozzo and Ziva David, exclusive to Paramount+ subscribers. Amidst these developments, the recent celebration of NCIS’s 1,000 episodes serves as a testament to its enduring legacy, with special tie-ins commemorating the journey from its inaugural episode, “Yankee White,” to the present day. Stay tuned to CinemaBlend for the latest updates on NCIS: Origins and the broader franchise.
