Maria Bello joins the cast as a series regular this season, introduced in the season's fourth episode.

She plays an NCIS agent who was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the army and served two tours in Afghanistan.

After joining NCIS, she built her reputation as the agency's premier forensic psychologist. Unlike the other agents, she can second guess and challenge Gibbs, so there will be friction but also mutual respect.

She is a positive force, mischievous and at times acerbic.

In the Season 15 premiere, "House Divided": Two months after Gibbs and McGee were last seen fighting an elusive group of rebels in a Paraguay jungle, the NCIS team in D.C. tirelessly searches for their missing colleagues.

Also, Vance and Torres are summoned to a congressional hearing regarding the fallout from the Paraguay mission.

Skelmpie returns for a second season with presenter Rian van Heerden.

Few things are worse than when a third party is involved in a relationship. What happens then? Should you and your partner break up or should you give him or her another chance?

And if you are willing to give another chance, will you ever be able to trust him or her again? Will you ever be able to trust anyone again?

In Skelmpie we chat to people who are familiar with this type of scenario all too well, from victims to cheaters to the people being cheated with.

The first season put the spotlight on couples in which one of them had a wandering eye, despite being married.

Experts were called in to give advice on how all parties should move forward.

This season, Rian highlights relationships many would find alternative, from love triangles to major age differences to spouses who are experimenting in their marriages.

In the Season 2 premiere: Lorette recounts the story of how she started a relationship with Conrad while he was still married.

Also, meet Arie and Gavin, who are still in a relationship after Arie cheated on Gavin with another man.

It's not just hostile neighbours they have to contend with; the family are also struggling to sell the houses in Vegas, and they're drowning in rents and mortgages.

Even Kody starts to wonder if the move might be a mistake.

With old tensions bubbling to the surface amongst the Sister Wives, it's a challenging time for the family - will things settle in time for Christmas?

In the second episode of the weekdays double bill, "The Brain in the Bot": After discovering the body of a man involved with creating artificial intelligence bots, the team must figure out whether the victim's own A.I. bot was programmed to kill him.

Next In Fashion reminds me... hows Project Runway SA for disappearing off the face of the planet!

I asked and asked Mzansi Magic about Season 2 last year - from the start of the year but there was never any update. Obviously because of co-producers Ndalo Media shutting down. I thought someone else would take it over, especially because of Rapid Blue's involvement but clearly not.

They did an audition call for it at the end of 2018 and then everthing went silent.
