New information has been released about the special NCIS 1000th episode. Daniela Ruah will reprise her role as Special Agent Kensi Blye from NCIS: Los Angeles, while Vanessa Lachey will play Special Agent Jane Tennant from NCIS: Hawai’i. The two agents will not be physically present at the D.C. office, but will participate remotely.

NCIS co-showrunner Steven D. Binder promises the episode will be a treat for longtime fans. “We really wanted to capture the history from episode one on up,” he told Parade. “There’s going to be a lot of Easter eggs in the show, too, visual and auditory, for fans to discover.”

This is a homecoming for Ruah, who not only played Kensi for 15 years on NCIS: Los Angeles but has also transitioned into directing within the NCIS universe. She recently directed the March 4 episode of NCIS and will be directing an upcoming episode of NCIS: Hawai’i. “So many familiar faces and people I love,” Ruah told Deadline. “It’s like coming home.”
