NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) is more than just an action drama. With liberal doses of humour, it's a show that focuses on the sometimes complex and always amusing dynamics of a team forced to work together in high-stress situations.
The 16th season returns one month after Director Vance (Rocky Carroll) was kidnapped by a terrorist who tortured Special Agent Sloane (Maria Bello) years ago in Afghanistan.
As Special Agent Gibbs (Mark Harmon) assumes the role as Acting Director in Vance's absence, the team searches worldwide for their missing leader.
Diona Reasonover, who joined the cast as Forensic Scientist Kasie Hines last season, is promoted to series regular cast for Season 16.
In the Season 16 premiere, "Destiny's Child": Vance is still missing, and Gibbs is assigned as acting director while the team searches his whereabouts.
NCIS is produced by Belisarius Productions in association with CBS Television Studios. Executive Producers are Gary Glasberg, Chas. Floyd Johnson, Mark Horowitz, Mark Harmon, Shane Brennan and Donald P. Bellisario.
