NCIS recently highlighted some of the wonderful behind-the-scenes friendships on twitter. The show has been on TV since 2003, so plenty of friendships have formed during its long run. This is even true for those newer to the cast.

In this case, the show highlighted the friendships between Sean Murray and Wilmer Valderrama as well as Diona Reasonover and Katrina Law. Katrina Law is the newest addition to the team. She joined the show as Special Agent Jessica Knight last year and being hired on as a regular for season 19.

Gary Cole, who plays Special Agent Alden Parker, also joined the show for season 19. But being new to the cast doesn’t mean you can’t find some fast friendships.

“BTS friendships are the best kind of friendships,” the Twitter account for the show writes.

There have been plenty of people to come and go over the years, but it appears the friendships that remain stay strong. And it’s nice to see Katrina Law, the newer cast member, already getting along great with her co-stars.

An Upcoming Episode Will Find the NCIS Team Set Up

The next episode of the series will find the NCIS unit lead into a potentially dangerous trap. They wind up boarding a boat of terrorists only dressed as Navy. The promo shows that Parker thinks fast enough to create a diversion when they’re ambushed and each member of the team is able to go hide on the ship.

The episode, called, All Hands should see the team fight to survive in this setting. It’ll also give us a small sneak peek at Jessica Knight’s personal life. The summary released by CBS gives more info on the upcoming episode.

“After a civilian research vessel in the North Atlantic picks up a small boat of wounded Navy officers, NCIS arrives on the ship and is forced to hide after discovering terrorists on board. Also, Agent Knight takes a paper doll with her on the mission to capture photos for her niece’s grade school class,” the summary says.

This is just one of the many bigger episodes planned for the upcoming season. We also have a crossover episode with NCIS: Hawai’i coming out in March. Wilmer Valderrama and Katrina law will join NCIS: Hawai’i‘s brand new team. The show is the newest NCIS spinoff.
