“NCIS: Los Angeles,” a spin-off of CBS’s “NCIS,” follows the Naval Criminal Investigative Service’s Office of Special Projects in LA. The series stars G. Callen (Chris O’Donnell) and Sam Hanna (LL Cool J) as undercover agents.

Over the years, the cast has expanded to include Kensi Blye (Daniela Ruah), Marty Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen), Hetty Lange (Linda Hunt), Eric Beale (Barrett Foa), and Nell Jones (Renée Felice Smith), with Eric and Nell departing after Season 12.
