NCIS Plot and Cast
It’s tricky to predict what may happen in season 20 until season 19 comes to a close in the spring of 2022. Season 18 finished on a cliffhanger with Gibbs almost k***d in a boat explosion and a serial k****r on the loose. However, it’s fair to say that in season 20 we’ll learn more about recruit Alden Parker, who has taken over Gibbs’ senior role.
In an interview with TV Insider for season 19, Gary Cole spoke about his character and said: “Parker isn’t overly chatty, but he is more verbal. He’s not as old school; he tries to get his hands on new tech gadgets and impress everybody. He’s trying to fit in with the rest of the team. Although he may be reluctant to voice it, he admires that Gibbs breaks rules. Parker bends them. We’ll see if it gets to the point of breaking.
The cast members of the previous season are expected to reprise their roles. This includes Timothy McGee, Leon Vance, Nick Torres, Dr Donald Mallard, Dr Jimmy Palmer, Kasie Hines, and Jess Knight.
