In a recent interview, Mark and Sean Harmon discussed their excitement about the upcoming NCIS spinoff, “NCIS: Origins,” affectionately dubbed “Young Gibbs.” Created by Sean based on his idea, the series has garnered high expectations from CBS, especially after replacing the canceled “Hawaii” time slot.

Mark and Sean spoke with ET about “NCIS: Origins,” highlighting its uniqueness compared to the original series. Set in 1990, the spinoff explores uncharted territory, offering viewers a fresh perspective. Sean, the mastermind behind the concept, expressed his enthusiasm for a project that has been in development for years. Reflecting on his character, he acknowledged his father’s influence and expressed gratitude for the opportunity to bring this “special” story to life.

“NCIS: Origins” will be narrated by Mark Harmon and is set in 1990. With Austin Stowell portraying a young Gibbs and Kyle Schmid as his mentor, Mike Franks, the series promises to offer Easter eggs for long-time fans while providing a fresh take due to its different era. Mariel Molino plays Special Agent Lala Dominguez, known for her dark humor, and Tyla Abercrombie takes on the role of Field Operations Support Officer Mary Jo Sullivan. The spinoff will air on Monday nights at 10 p.m. Eastern time, replacing “NCIS: Hawaii” on CBS.
