Showrunner Gary Glasberg also announced on Thursday at the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour that he already has plotted some NCIS crossovers.

“We’re currently planning an episode where Gibbs will make an appearance,” he shared. In addition to that, in separate episodes, “We have a storyline where Michael Weatherly is involved, Pauley Perrette is involved, David McCallum….”

“There’ll be a couple episodes that might come up where you see a couple NCIS characters,” he clarified afterward. “We’re working that out now, and it comes down to scheduling very often. We have our wish list of what we can do and what we can’t do.”

  1. Mmm says:

    But what about a crossover with LA?

  2. enuff said says:

    I know! They treat LA like it’s the red headed step child of the family.

  3. Boiler says:

    If they are doing crossovers why do we need the new show?

  4. Jason says:

    NO is getting crossovers because both shows are produced by the same people, LA is not.

  5. Ryan says:

    Maybe they think the show needs some help keeping viewers. Either way, I’ll probably watch…as long as the lead actor stops saying “My brother.”

  6. Bud says:

    I’m all for crossovers that affect the characters and contribute to the story, but I can’t stand a crossover as a token gesture. Do it right or don’t do it at all.

  7. Tara says:

    i didn’t read/hear mcgee get crossed-over :( poor guy never gets to go anywhere.

  8. I love to watch NCIS LA. Keep up the good work.

  9. TDXI says:

    I don’t know why they are pushing NCIS NO it’s crap. The place, the cast and especially the bad accents just don’t work.

  10. R says:

    I’m interested. My daughter loves NCIS and now we’ll have one that’s close to home. Please no fake accents; it’s so unflattering and very much a turn – off because it is so obvious to those who know better. I do really like Scott Bakula so that is a big draw for me. I will give it a chance.
