The CBS NCIS franchise has achieved remarkable success, giving rise to spinoff series such as NCIS: Los Angeles, NCIS: New Orleans, and the latest addition, NCIS: Hawaii. As the original series prepares for its 21st season, NCIS: Hawaii, which premiered in 2021, is also gearing up for its third season.

Breaking new ground, NCIS: Hawaii made history as the first in the franchise to feature a female lead, portrayed by Vanessa Lachey. Lachey takes on the role of Jane Tennant, the inaugural female Special Agent in charge of the Pearl Harbor attack investigation. The show garnered positive attention, and its first season was marked by a traditional Hawaiian blessing on Oahu.

After a successful first season, NCIS: Hawaii was renewed for a second season, concluding in May 2023. Excitingly, fans eagerly anticipating the continuation of Agent Jane Tennant’s story can rejoice, as the third season is scheduled to premiere on February 12, 2024.

Both NCIS: Hawaii and the original NCIS series received renewals for new seasons in February 2023. Originally set for a fall 2023 premiere, production delays stemming from writers’ and actors’ strikes pushed the start of production to September and November for the two shows, respectively.

The third season of NCIS: Hawaii will witness the return of key cast members, including Vanessa Lachey as Jane, Noah Mills as Jesse Boon, Yasmine Al-Bustami as Lucy Tara, Alex Tarrant as Kai Holman, Tori Anderson as Kathrine Marie Whistler, and Jason Antoon as Ernie Malik. Notably, LL Cool J, who received acclaim for his appearance in the season 2 finale, will be making a return for the upcoming season, adding his talent to the NCIS: Hawaii ohana (family).

Anticipation for the third season is running high, and fans can eagerly anticipate the return of both the flagship series and NCIS: Hawaii on February 12, 2024.
