Fall TV Preview

First Look: NCIS Season 10 Promo Packs a Punch

Well, damn. David McCallum had to go and do that.

The first promo for Season 10 of CBS’ NCIS, TV’s most watched drama series, packs quite a punch, hinting at the emotional aftermath of the bombing that wrecked HQ with almost all of the main characters inside. But even Ducky, who learned of the tragedy via telephone, was felled by it, with a heart attack.

  • “You hurt my family” – exactly why this show has such a following. Excellent character development for a procedural.

  • Beautiful. I love Gibbs and how his team really is a family. HIS family.

  • Where’s McGee?

    • Thank you! I was wondering the exact same thing. The only point you see him is when he is being blow backwards in the blast.

    • That was my first thought!! He’s only shown as the explosion goes off…

    • Darn, I think McGee will be the most hurt and maybe he will have a really good storyline from it…I really miss ‘author’ McGee. Lets get him writing again !!!!

      • Great idea! Would love to see that too!

        • Yeah, back in season 3, 4, whatever, loved it how Mcgee made fun of them in a book. Now, its a whole different story.

  • TONY AND ZIVA IN AN ELEVATOR. Gibbs talking about avenging his “family”. Abby being super, super sad. No McGee (!). Ducky in a hospital bed. I might die.

    • If they killed off Sean Murray, I’d be so scared

      Comment by Christian – September 6, 2012 12:35 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • His contract lasts for two more years. McGee will be fine :)

        • I’d like to take that as a comfort, but actors do leave shows even under contract (like Sasha Alexander), so that could be a red herring. I am so hoping McGee will survive, and maybe even get a story for a change. Nothing against Tony and Ziva, but I do love McGee too.

          Comment by RJ – September 6, 2012 08:59 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Understood. And yes, I totally agree. If anything were to happen to McGee, he would be missed SO much.

            Comment by Stamanah – September 6, 2012 09:22 PM PDT  
          • McGee used to be the first cast member I’d toss out whenever rumors would say someone is going to die. Now though Palmer would be my first choice by a country mile. THEN McGee. Though he’s very close to Vance, but Vance has a sneaky side that makes him more interesting than McGeek.

            Comment by mellow harsher – September 7, 2012 02:04 AM PDT  
          • Oh, I love McGee as well and I hope this means we’ll see Sean really get to showcase his talents. He’s such an integral part of the show. He just signed a new contract back in July. I’m looking forward to seeing Team Gibbs dealing with the aftermath as well as Tony and Ziva’s connection. Nobody messes with Gibbs’ family & gets away with it…..Dearing is going down. Palmer’s not leaving as it was announced back in June that he would become a series regular and be put in the opening credits, plus TPTB have plans for Palmer to step up while Ducky recovers. Wonder how this will shake Vance this season though? How will Abby react to the explosion?? I look forward to seeing her connect with her new found brother. I love each and every character and the actors/actresses that play them and this is such a wonderful ensemble cast.

    As a non-USA citizen, I can’t view. (Or perhaps it’s something else, at least it says geographical)

    • It is on YouTube now. Just type in NCIS season 10 promo. It is excellent. I can’t wait. :)

  • WOWZA! OMG this will be so powerful. But I am alarmed about McGee… the only hope I have is that Sean Murray signed a contract, so I can only presume he’ll be back. This show is #1 because of its spectacular writing, amazing actors and acting, and great directing. Everything about it is top notch. Too bad more shows can’t have the quality that NCIS does. It’s my fave and I can’t wait!

      • I’m sorry, I can’t hear you over Tony and Ziva emotionally connecting.

        • Hey, break it up. What about Vance? Is he alright? Did he survive the explosion?

          Comment by Christian – September 9, 2012 11:37 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • oh Tony and Ziva in the elevator…and then more to come after…how happy does this make me…very very happy. Just the promo of the ‘earth moving’ is so exciting …yah !!!! Time for those two to really connect and I for one can hardly wait !!!! Bring it on Gary !!!!

  • This is one of the best promos in years. I think they don’t show McGee to keep the mystery whether he is seriously injured or not… but this is truely amazing and I simply can’t wait for more

  • WOW! THAT promo is why NCIS is the Number One Drama on TV!

  • I have to agree……I love this promo…..it is one of the best and the song they chose for this promo is awesome! I can’t wait til Sept. 25th…..only 19 days left to go.

    Gibbs is right, you don’t hurt his family and expect to get away with it. I just hope McGee is not hurt too bad…..but I feel this will allow the fans to see more of Sean’s talents.

    I’m looking forward to seeing how they recover from this, on an emotional level. I feel this season will be one of the best.

    Tony and Ziva, that’s all I gotta say! :-)

  • Well, that is a spectacular promo, but for another promo, how about a preview of what the 10th season opening credits will look like.

    Comment by Christian – September 6, 2012 12:34 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • oh yes, that would be really nice to see…hurry up September 25th…….

      Comment by jdeasselin – September 6, 2012 04:36 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Yes it would. What I can imagine, though, is that Palmer is being added to the opening credits. Finally, all the cast members finally in the opening credits.

        Comment by Christian – September 9, 2012 11:33 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Yeah, this promo has been out for a few days now. I think TVLine is slipping.
