While the flagship ‘NCIS’ series remains paused due to industry strikes, the Australian spinoff ‘NCIS: Sydney’ is currently in active production, marking the franchise’s first international endeavor. While labor disputes have affected Hollywood projects, the Australian division of NCIS is bustling with activity.

‘NCIS: Sydney’ has already introduced its ensemble cast, a mix of seasoned actors and rising stars, and production is well underway. The show does not yet have an official premiere date, but the excitement among fans is palpable.

The cast of ‘NCIS: Sydney’ includes Olivia Swann, an English actor, in the role of NCIS Special Agent Michelle Mackey. Todd Lasance, an Australian actor known for roles in ‘The Flash,’ ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ and ‘Spartacus: War of the Damned,’ plays Sergeant Jim “JD” Dempsey. Other cast members include Sean Sagar as NCIS Special Agent DeShawn Jackson, Tuuli Narkle as AFP Liaison Officer Constable Evie Cooper, Mavournee Hazel as AFP Forensic Scientist Bluebird ‘Blue’ Gleeson, and William McInnes as AFP Forensic Pathologist Dr. Roy Penrose.

Production for ‘NCIS: Sydney’ is in full swing, and the cast members have been spotted filming scenes in Australia. They appear to be enjoying their time on set as they bring their characters to life. ‘NCIS: Sydney’ is set to be released in late 2023 through a partnership between Paramount Plus Australia and Network Ten, while the return date for the parent show, ‘NCIS,’ on CBS remains uncertain.
