The series is about solving crimes in which members of the United States Navy and the United States Marine Corps are involved. The original English title was Navy NCIS during the first season and was renamed NCIS at the beginning of the second season .

Navy CIS was founded on an idea by Donald P. Bellisario and Don McGill, is a spin-off from JAG - On behalf of the honor and in turn produced two offshoots. Navy CIS: LA (2009) is set in Los Angeles and Navy CIS: New Orleans (2014) is set in the New Orleans branch .

The NCIS team solves the first case in a backdoor pilot in the series JAG - On behalf of honor . In the double episode Icy Times of the eighth season of JAG - On behalf of the honor , the main character, Commander Harmon Rabb, is suspected of the murder of Lieutenant Loren Singer. The main characters from Navy CIS are introduced to solve the Singer murder. Vivian Blackadder, who appeared in the backdoor pilot Eisige Zeiten , no longer appears in the series. Special agent Caitlin Todd, who is still a member of the United States Secret Service in the first episode, joins Gibbs' team at the end of this episode. While the JAG episodes are primarily geared towards the genre of courtroom drama, Navy CIS focuses on the criminal investigation.

season 1

The first season accompanies investigators at NCIS headquarters in Washington, DC, in the first episode to Air Force One . A Navy commander in charge of nuclear football suddenly fell dead. During the investigation, Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs, the head of the unit, meets FBI senior agent Tobias Fornell, who becomes a good friend of Gibbs' later in the series, which neither of them would ever admit.

Gibbs is accompanied by his colleagues Tony DiNozzo and Kate Todd, who move from Secret Service to Gibbs' team in the first episode . With the help of forensic scientist Abby Sciuto and coroner Dr. Donald "Ducky" Mallard can find Gibbs' team in every episode and convict the perpetrator. As the season progresses, the character of Timothy McGee is introduced. McGee is a young Norfolk agent who from time to time helps the team out with his computer skills.

The highlight of the season is the appearance of the terrorist Ari Haswari, who in the episode Nightmare in the Basement Dr. Mallard and Todd held hostage. Further, in the hostage-taking of an assistant to Dr. Mallard, Gerald Jackson, shot and can no longer carry out his work. When the hostage is freed , Ari can flee. By the season finale, Gibbs' desire to hunt down the terrorist becomes obsessive ; however, it always escapes.

season 2

At the beginning of the second season, McGee becomes a permanent member of Gibbs' team. He is often raised by DiNozzo and Todd. McGee is initially treated harshly and demanding by Gibbs so that he can fit into the team.

Also in this season, the members of the NCIS investigate cases of murder, espionage , terrorism and kidnapping . So Dr. Mallard subsequently Bloody Puzzle of a contract killer kidnapped, making Gibbs and his team fall into a race against time and try to save the life of the coroner.

Furthermore, at the end of the season, DiNozzo opens a letter that contains a white-brownish powder. It is later found out that DiNozzo became infected with the pulmonary plague . Todd was not infected, but he pretends to DiNozzo that she is. Gibbs and Abby try to find an antidote. Ultimately, DiNozzo can be saved as the bacterium destroys itself after several hours.

In the season finale, the terrorist Ari Haswari, who appeared in the first season, returns and tries to kill Gibbs. However, this can be thwarted. During the investigation, Haswari shot Todd from a great distance on the roof of a warehouse. The episode ends with Todd dying in front of Gibbs and DiNozzo.

season 3

The first episode of the third season begins with the flashback of the death of Agent Kate Todd. The hunt for Ari Haswari begins and the team comes dangerously close to the terrorist. Todd shows up to NCIS members and makes it clear that they shouldn't blame themselves. When Haswari threatens to kill Gibbs in the basement of Gibbs' house, he is shot by his half-sister Ziva David. Ziva David is a Mossad agent who has come to Washington for support. She then becomes the liaison officer for NCIS.

The Director of NCIS, Thomas Morrow, is moving to Homeland Security as Deputy Director . He is succeeded by Jenny Shepard, Gibbs' former partner and romance. Because of this past, she often finds it difficult to give Gibbs orders. Still, they have a distant relationship and get along well.

In the season finale, Gibbs is seriously injured by an explosion and falls into a coma. After he wakes up, he cannot remember anything that has happened in the past 15 years. Only his mentor and old friend Mike Franks can help him remember. After Gibbs has completely regained his memory, he quits the service, goes on early retirement and goes to Mexico with Franks .

Season 4

At the beginning of the season, Gibbs is retiring in Mexico, and the NCIS team, led by DiNozzo, has to get used to it when the FBI sees Ziva David as the prime suspect in an assassination attempt. David then contacts Gibbs. After Gibbs helped David, he returned to Mexico. But his retirement was interrupted again a short time later because he was needed in a reopened case. After that, Gibbs decides to return to NCIS.

During the season, DiNozzo took on an undercover assignment under the direction of director Jenny Shepard . He is supposed to start a relationship with Jeanne Benoit, the daughter of the internationally sought-after arms dealer René Benoit alias "La Grenouille" (in German: "The Frog"). During this undercover mission, DiNozzo falls in love with Benoit. Subsequently, the director plans to meet an informant who knows something about Grenouille. However, he was shot before the meeting. This is one of the reasons Shepard has become increasingly fixated on hunt down Grenouille. Also, Shepard and Grenouille appear to have shared a past. Gibbs tries unsuccessfully to slow down Shepard and bring Shepard back down to earth.

The season finale shows DiNozzo and Benoit in the hospital, where they are taken hostage by a drug dealer in the morgue. DiNozzo succeeds in freeing himself and Benoit, risking being exposed as an undercover agent.

Season 5

The viewer is given the impression that DiNozzo is driving his car. This car explodes on the open road. The NCIS team that observed the action initially assume that DiNozzo was killed in the explosion. The first investigations indicate that DiNozzo actually sat in this car. Only the coroner Mallard found out during the autopsy that the corpse could not be DiNozzo. A little later, DiNozzo reappears in the NCIS office. The hunt for the arms dealer Grenouille begins. He shows up at Shepard's house and asks for protection, which he is denied. At the end of the episode, Grenouille's body is shown in the water, but the NCIS team is initially not informed of his death. Only in the episode Long Live the Queen did the FBI investigate the murder of Grenouille within the NCIS. Suspects include the director, DiNozzo and Benoit, who is returning from South Africa . The investigation is brought to an end by the CIA agent Trent Kort. Gibbs continues to suspect Shepard for comparing a cartridge case from her gun to the ballistics report.

Later, the audience learns that Shepard is terminally ill. In the last two episodes of the season, Shepard and Franks investigate a distant case involving the Oshimaida Code . After Shepard is killed in an exchange of fire in an abandoned diner in the desert, NCIS Assistant Director Leon Vance opens the investigation. Gibbs is kept at a distance in the investigation, but makes contact with Franks, who informs him of the events. Franks kills the hit man in Shepard's house. To make the body disappear, the house is then set on fire. This is later used to pretend that Jenny Shepard perished in her home. The real events are kept secret. At the end of the episode, Leon Vance becomes the new director of NCIS, transferring DiNozzo, David and McGee to new positions. Gibbs gets a new team.

Season 6

After all members of Gibbs' team have been transferred, Gibbs has to train his new team, consisting of Keating, Lee and Langer. He learns that one of these employees is spying on NCIS. This was the reason for the breakup of Gibbs' team. After Keating is suspected and interrogated, Lee shoots Agent Langer, who used to work for the FBI. Director Leon Vance thinks the case is closed, but Gibbs has doubts. He gets his old team back. As the season progresses, it turns out that Lee, who is being blackmailed, is the actual spy. Eventually, Lee is shot dead in an exchange of fire between the blackmailer and Gibbs. During the season, David establishes a relationship with Mossad agent Michael. DiNozzo is skeptical about the relationship, he fears that Michael is taking advantage of David. David believes that DiNozzo acts out of jealousy, her trust in Michael remains unbroken. In the penultimate episode of the season, it emerges that Michael is actually spying for the Mossad in America, accidentally killing a Homeland Security agent. DiNozzo then goes to Michael, who is staying in David's apartment, and tells him to leave the country. Michael attacks DiNozzo and breaks his arm. In a tough fight, DiNozzo can finally shoot him. David doesn't believe DiNozzo that he shot Michael in self-defense. She accuses him of having shot Michael out of a feeling of jealousy. In the last episode, DiNozzo is interrogated in Israel by David's father, the head of the Mossad, on the death of Michael. DiNozzo provokes him to say that Michael acted on his behalf. Still, David decides to leave NCIS and return to work for the Mossad.

In order for this to happen, DiNozzo and McGee allow themselves to be deliberately captured. As a result of the rescue, David gets out of the Mossad and returns to NCIS. There she is initially placed under observation and is not allowed to work directly with the team. When the trust is restored, she becomes a citizen of the United States and takes her swearing-in in the season finale. The NCIS team also gets to know DiNozzo's father. The relationship between father and son is shown and clarified in more detail. In addition, Gibbs' father reappears, who visits him for Christmas. In addition, Gibbs is faced with a case this season in which his mother-in-law, the mother of his late wife Shannon, plays a role.

Gibbs' team is assigned to protect David's father, the director of the Mossad, as the season progresses. There is an ambush in which the director of the NCIS, Leon Vance, is injured and is hospitalized. In various flashbacks, more and more of his past is brought to light, including a. how he got to NCIS and how he and Gibbs first met. DiNozzo is the first to learn about his time with the Baltimore Police Department. In addition, the relationship between Ziva and her father is discussed more.

At the end of the season, DiNozzo leaves the team because he has to take care of his daughter Tali, whose mother Ziva was apparently killed at the end of the season. Fornell was also seriously injured in the case that preoccupies MI6, CIA, FBI and NCIS.

Season 14

At the beginning of season 14, Nick Torres and Alex Quinn join the team. Tobias Fornell is at Gibbs' home for the entire season as a result of his gunshot wounds at the end of season 13.

At the end of the season, Gibbs, McGee and Torres lead a rescue mission for two Navy soldiers in Paraguay. The rescue mission, which also rescues children, is carried out successfully and the ARC is almost defeated. Gibbs and McGee stay behind so the others can escape. This serves as a cliffhanger for season 15.

Season 15

Season 15 takes up the end of the previous season, McGee and Gibbs are in captivity in Paraguay, while the freed can escape around Torres. Some time later, the team manages to free both of them.

In the middle of the season, Jack Sloane meets the team and works as a psychologist.

At the end of the season, Abby leaves the team because Clayton Reeves was shot. Both had dinner together and were then attacked on purpose, as a prisoner wanted to take revenge on Abby, as she is responsible for his imprisonment.

In the final episode, Director Vance is captured. This is done by a war criminal whose camp was destroyed by Vance. In this liberation operation, when the camp was destroyed, Sloane was also liberated. This can also be seen as a cliffhanger for season 16.

Production method and characteristics

During filming on March 8, 2009

The action takes place in the city of Washington, DC , but it is actually produced in Valencia , part of the city of Santa Clarita ( California ). When shooting outdoors, many shots are made in southern California and rarely in Washington. The NCIS Washington Field Office in Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in the Anacostia Annex, District of Columbia is used for scenes with the NCIS headquarters .

Production history

Donald P. Bellisario , who also co-wrote JAG and other popular television series such as Magnum and Back to the Past , is co-inventor and executive producer with Don McGill . Donald P. Bellisario announced in early May 2007 that he would no longer be available as a producer for Navy CIS from season five. He wants to dedicate himself to new projects in the future, his previous task should be the previous co-producer Chas. Floyd Johnson and chief writer Shane Brennan take over. This decision was preceded by differences between Bellisario and leading actor Mark Harmon . Harmon had complained about the sometimes chaotic shooting conditions and threatened to quit the series. Even so, Donald P. Bellisario retained the title of Executive Producer.


Original logo of the series from season 2

The producer Donald P. Bellisario decided at the beginning of the series for the title name Navy NCIS to avoid confusion with the popular series CSI . A reference to this topic can be found in the first episode, Air Force One . After the establishment of the series, a likelihood of confusion seemed less likely, so that from the second season the title could be changed to the originally intended name NCIS . Sat.1 , on the other hand, chose Navy CIS, a completely new and grammatically incorrect variant (correctly called Naval CIS ) as the title.

Writers strike

From November 2007 to February 2008, a writers' strike in the US brought production of NCIS to a standstill in the middle of season five. The scriptwriters stopped work to get a new contract. NCIS Executive Producer Shane Brennan was also among the strikers. The production company Belisarius Productions in association with Paramount Network Television originally ordered 24 episodes of the fifth season. Eleven episodes were filmed by the end of the strike. After the writers' strike ended, eight more episodes were produced for the fifth season. The sixth season comprised 25 episodes due to the shortened fifth season.

Corona crisis

Due to a shooting stop due to the corona pandemic , the production of the 17th season was reduced from the planned 24 episodes to 20. The productions of NCIS: Los Angeles and NCIS: New Orleans had to be shut down.

Episode structure

The episode usually begins with the portrayal of a crime or its discovery without the appearance of the main characters. This is followed by the series opening credits, which are changed from season to season and are largely provided with scenes from the current season. Now the protagonists of the series appear, mostly in the NCIS office. A topic of conversation is introduced, often in a humorous way, carried out further in the course of the episode and resolved at the end or retained as a tension element for further episodes. Suddenly, Special Agent Gibbs enters the room and informs the team of the crime. This is followed by the crime scene analysis, in which usually all agents, as well as the pathologist Dr. Mallard and his assistant Palmer attend. Initial assumptions are made and the background to the victims is known. Then the investigative work begins: the autopsy takes place, the evidence is examined by Abby Sciuto at NCIS headquarters and everyone in the team takes on an investigative task or is assigned it by Gibbs. Suspects are interrogated, theories put forward and validity checked. Each of the protagonists contributes to the clarification and the puzzle is put together more and more as the process progresses. So the case is ultimately resolved, often through a confession.

From the second season onwards, freeze frames in black and white are defining the style . They show an image - often the facial expression of a main character - that will follow. As soon as the picture is shown in the course of the action, the next freeze frame follows. The last one closes the episode.

A cliff hanger is used at the end of each season . A season theme in the style of a “red thread” introduced at the beginning of the season and continuously expanded is either completely dissolved or carried over to the next season, then dissolved or continued. Once a topic has been told to the end, the basis for a new topic is often laid in the same episode.


There have been personnel changes on the staff over the years . The most important of these are the scriptwriters , who are or were also executive producers and production managers. The following people were significantly involved in the development of the stories told in Navy CIS, as well as, in brackets, the seasons belonging to the episodes:

  • Jack Bernstein (1-3)
  • Frank Cardea (1–)
  • George Schenck (1–)
  • Steven D. Binder (4-)
  • Christopher J. Waild (5-)
  • Nicole Mirante-Matthews (8–)

Cast and dubbing

Some characters who played in JAG also appear in Navy CIS . Patrick Labyorteaux plays his role as Bud Roberts in the episodes Leap to Death and Rogue . Even Alicia Coppola plays her JAG role as Lieutenant Commander Faith Coleman, who appears in several episodes. Adam Baldwin embodied the character of Commander Michael Rainer in both series. Sean Murray , known in Navy CIS as Special Agent Timothy McGee, played Ensign Guitry, son of a friend of Admiral Chegwidden's in JAG . Aside from Murray, Michael Bellisario , known as Mike Roberts, appears as Assistant Forensic Technician Charles "Chip" Sterling in several episodes. Steven Culp , CIA agent Clayton Webb in JAG , plays CIS Commander William Skinner in Navy . John M. Jackson plays his role as AJ Chegwidden at the end of season ten.

DVD release

Press review

Navy CIS is one of the longest running, high-viewer drama series on television. Still, the press and television critics rarely deal with the series. Vera HC Chan headlined “NCIS: the number one television series nobody talks about” for Yahoo 2013 . Chan sees the series as a workplace comedy in addition to the murder investigation. The comedic elements compensate for serious issues such as PTSD , gun smuggling, religious or sexual intolerance.

Gillian Flynn, writer of Entertainment Weekly , said in February 2007 that while NCIS doesn't offend intelligence, it doesn't really strain it either. The mysteries in NCIS , ie serial killers, weapons dealers and some terrorism, are "excellent" , but the reason for switching on is the team that solves the cases. The investigators in NCIS each correspond to a certain type ( "the stud, the nerd, the perky-Goth-tech-girl-with-pigtails-and-skull-shirts" ) and are inspired by "brilliant" scripts and "brave" actors . With “charming” predictability, each episode contains at least one of the following elements: Chief investigator Gibbs gets confused because of the technology, Ziva made some mistakes with the English language, the clumsy McGee suffered from humiliations like “ poison sumac in the crotch”, and from the Team members would be made lovable bourgeois sex-related jokes. Sometimes NCIS is less of a crime drama than a cheerful family comedy , in which the team members ruthlessly tease each other with jokes about manicures, girlfriends and love affairs.

Jon Caramanica described Navy CIS in an article published in the Los Angeles Times in 2010 as procedural - a genre that in German has the meaning of a drama series with a closed storyline - with a mixture of light and shadow that no other television series can offer have. Typically, the series undercut the seriousness of the average procedural with the "equivalent of a fanfare and a whooping pillow", it is a procedural with a "slapstick heart". However, NCIS has become "more irritating" with increasing age. What once felt unfocused and tiring, is now the break from the "grumpy" crime investigation that takes place elsewhere on CBS and at which you hardly get a laugh. The series seems liberated like improvised theater. Gibbs was the upright man, "stingy with appreciation" ( stingy with approval mainly bring), a minimalist with words, the threat of a severe haircut expressed. He is immutable, which allows everyone around him to explore all its absurdity.

On the series has a rating of 8.8 / 10 based on over 16,500 votes and at the series has a rating of 8/10 based on 67,000 votes.

NCIS is in the US according to a survey by market research firm Harris Interactive from 2011 the most popular series of all time ( english favorite television show of all time ).

The soundtrack is divided into two CDs, CD 1 contains twelve general songs that appear in the series, CD 2, entitled Abby's Lab , contains ten songs that run in the series in Abby's laboratory. The song Fear was created in collaboration with Pauley Perrette, the actress of Abby Sciuto.

On March 29, 2011, the third album was released under the title NCIS: The Official TV Score both in the USA as an MP3 download and CD or CD import. The album contains fifteen songs that NCIS composer Brian Kirk has mixed from the NCIS score to form independent music tracks. The NCIS Main Theme can also be found under the songs .


NCIS: Los Angeles

In the USA, Navy CIS: LA has been broadcast on the slot behind Navy CIS since September 22, 2009 . The team on the new series was introduced in the sixth season of the mother series (Legend I & II) . Actors include Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J as well as Daniela Ruah and Linda Hunt . This had created another spin-off in the series universe of JAG - On behalf of the honor by the great success of Navy CIS .


Another offshoot called NCIS: Red was developed for the 2013/14 television season. In the planned series, Kim Raver and John Corbett , among others, played members of a nationwide investigative, mobile emergency team that lives and works together. A season four episode of Navy CIS: LA served as the backdoor pilot for the planned series. However, CBS decided against ordering the series.

NCIS: New Orleans

In 2013 it was announced that CBS was working on another spin-off. The new series is set in New Orleans and was introduced via a two-part backdoor pilot of the parent series NCIS. For Navy CIS: New Orleans , Scott Bakula , CCH Pounder and Zoe McLellan were signed up in early February 2014 . This backdoor episode, entitled Crescent City , aired on CBS on March 25th and April 1st, 2014. The series was officially ordered in May 2014.

Series universe

Due to a crossover between Navy CIS: LA and the series Hawaii Five-0 , which is also broadcast on CBS , this series also plays in the same series universe as Navy CIS , Navy CIS: LA and JAG - On behalf of the honor .

In episode 01x06 of the TV series Scorpion , actress Linda Hunt has a guest appearance as Hetty Lange , who she also plays in the series NCIS: Los Angeles . Thus Scorpion plays in the same series universe as JAG , NCIS , NCIS: Los Angeles , NCIS: New Orleans , Mac Gyver and Hawaii Five-0 .
