Walking down sandy white beaches and looking onto glimmering blue water, all the while on the set of “NCIS: Hawai’i.” It’s a dreamy-sounding job that producers are looking to make a reality.

CBS announced that “NCIS: Hawai’i” would be joining the “NCIS” and “NCIS: Los Angeles” universe. The show is starting up right as “NCIS: New Orleans” was not renewed for another season.

Fans of the crime drama show universe can now get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

‘NCIS: Hawai’i’ Casting Extras

According to Hawaii News Now, the casting crew is looking for people to walk and exist along with the beautiful islands for the show. Shayne Hartigan, who is a part of Alessi Hartigan Casting, spoke about exactly what the crew is looking for.

“I’m so excited. We really want to get all, all kinds of inclusion in on this project, so of course, you know, the military, the HPD presence, but also the local community and shop owners and restaurateurs and anybody possible,” Hartigan said.

It’s important that the casting crew creates an accurate and fair depiction of what Hawaii looks like.

Those selected will fill up background space on “NCIS: Hawai’i.” The show is set to start filming this next week. Vanessa Lachey will be the leader of the new crime show named Jane Tennant. She’s making history as the first female lead on an “NCIS” universe show. It’s a long-awaited development for the show.

How to Watch and Actors Involved

While it seems like “NCIS: Hawai’i” will be on TV soon, the exact date is not yet clear. What we do know is that the show will air on Monday nights on CBS. It will be on directly after “NCIS,” which airs at 9 p.m. ET.

The show will also be available to watch on the Paramount+ app. It’s also likely the show will appear on services like Hulu, YouTube TV, Sling TV, fuboTV, and Amazon Prime Video.

In addition to Lachey, Yasmine Al-Bustami and Jason Antoon were two of the first to be added to the cast of “NCIS: Hawai’i.”

According to Deadline, Tori Anderson (“No Tomorrow”) and Kian Talan (“Brainchild”) are set to play opposite of the other cast members as well.

Anderson is playing Kate Whistler, an agent that is a part of the Defense Intelligence Agency. She is looking to continue growing in her profession, but there is a lot of mystery surrounding her character. Talan will be Alex, Jane Tennant’s oldest 16-year-old son. He has an extreme level of maturity but is still coping with his parent’s divorce.
