“NCIS: Los Angeles” fans are eating up every single morsel passed out about the upcoming Season 13 episodes. They got an update recently.

Production manager Rick Tunell went on Twitter and shared a little behind-the-scenes info with his followers. A lot of them probably are “NCIS: Los Angeles” fans, so this news was most welcome.

According to an article in the British newspaper Express, Tunell shared the title of the show’s third episode for the upcoming season.

“First shot 6:50am. Ep#1303,” Tunell wrote on Twitter. He added a photo and shared this, too. “‘Indentured’. Day#2. #ncisla #bestcrewinhollywood.” was the rest of his tweet.

‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ Production Manager Reveals Episode Name

So, the CBS crime drama’s third episode will be called “Indentured.” Beyond that, though, no further details were revealed. What do we know for Outsiders interested in the new season? Well, its season opener will air on Sunday, Oct. 10. “NCIS: Los Angeles” will set any “NCIS” fan up for back-to-back nights of shows from the franchise.

On Mondays this season, “NCIS” will air at 9 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. Central. It will be ahead of a new spin-off called “NCIS: Hawai’i” that will air at 10 p.m. Eastern, 9 p.m. Central. Obviously, both shows will be on CBS, which has been the home network of “NCIS” for many seasons.

“NCIS: Los Angeles” stars Chris O’Donnell, LL Cool J, Daniela Ruah, and Eric Christian Olsen in their familiar roles.

Now fans also can rest easy in the knowledge that actress Linda Hunt will return as Hetty this season, too. That’s not to say, though, that someone else might be stepping into her seat down the road.

Fatima Might Be Eyeing That Seat Held By Hetty Right Now

We don’t know when or where this might happen, but is it possible Fatima takes over for Hetty?

There are hints left by a video from Fatima Namazi actress Medalion Rahimi. She jokingly posted a video of herself sitting in Hetty’s chair.

This has led “NCIS: Los Angeles” fans to speculate. While Rahimi was joking, sometimes jokes turn into pieces of reality.

Hunt appeared sporadically in episodes last season because of COVID-19 precautions. Her scenes for “NCIS: Los Angeles” were actually filmed on the actress’ driveway at her home in the Los Angeles area.

But she’s due back in full force for Season 13. Showrunner R. Scott Gemmil said in an interview with TV Line that Hunt was incredibly excited to return to set.

Hunt has made it clear that she’s all in for this season. Down the road, though, someone might be taking over her seat. Outsiders who love this show can keep their eyes glued this season for any hint that Hetty’s out the door.
