The NCIS: Los Angeles Instagram page reminded fans that character Fatima Namazi could “take you down.” The post depicts the Special Agent on a motorcycle staring down the camera.
“Friendly reminder that Fatima Namazi could take you down and hardly break a sweat doing it,” the caption read.
Namazi is played by actress Medalion Rahimi, who commented that “she may be small but she’s fiesty!!”
‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ To Return in the Fall
While flagship NCIS has been renewed for a 19th season, the future of the show is in question. Mark Harmon, who plays Jethro Gibbs, is rumored to want to exit. He will appear in season 19, but it’s not yet known just how much. CBS is also moving NCIS’s staple Tuesday timeslot to Monday to accommodate for their FBI series and allow NCIS to air in front of the upcoming first season of NCIS: Hawai’i.
NCIS: Los Angeles has had better luck than the other two in the franchise. Its renewal has been significantly more rumor-free and doesn’t come with questions about the longevity of the show. NCIS: Los Angeles also gets to keep its time slot.
However, the show did say goodbye to two major cast members in its recent season finale. The recent NCIS: Los Angeles finale revealed the departure of both Barrett Foa and Reneé Felice Smith. The rest of the cast is slated to return.
The Show Just Had a Finale Like No Other
NCIS: Los Angeles has some feel-good moments but is far from a happy show. Like the others in the NCIS franchise, the show takes an often dark look into the lives of NCIS special agents. This year, the finale ended on a surprisingly happy note. It wasn’t originally intended to be that way, but fans have already had a hard year outside of TV.
“We were going to use the finale that we had written for last season, which got bumped because of COVID,” Showrunner Scott Gemmill told TV Line.
“And then we realized everyone had such a tough, s***ty year that we couldn’t in good conscience put the fans through any more trauma. So we decided to go in the exact opposite way and do a fun, feel-good episode that leaves everyone happy and hopeful for what is coming down the line.”
Now, between seasons, the show’s taken to sharing fun photos on social media as fans prepare for the fall. Whether or not NCIS: Los Angeles will have another feel-good finale in its future is impossible to predict, but many fans were grateful for the break this time around.
