Here’s another collection of news, interviews, tweets, videos and photos for NCIS, Criminal Minds and NCIS: Los Angeles. (Spoilers after the jump!)
This interview with Mark Harmon (Leroy Jethro Gibbs) discusses the show’s longterm success and the exit of Cote de Pablo (Ziva David). Here’s an excerpt:
I’ve been acting long enough to appreciate the kind of opportunity this show is. It’s a machine, but it’s a machine that’s forever changing, and if we’re able to maintain what we have here, I don’t see any reason why it can’t continue for a while.
Harmon will be one of the presenters at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards this Sunday, September 22.
Check out these two photos from Twitter, featuring Sean Murray (Timothy McGee), Diane Neal (Abigail Borin), Michael Weatherly (Tony DiNozzo) and Harmon:

Here’s a question about the show from TVLine:
Can you please tell me if Paris Summerskill (played by Kim Raver) will be reappearing on NCIS: LA, as Callen’s girlfriend? –Daniel
Show boss Shane Brennan would not confirm any immediate plans for any Red team members to resurface on LA—after all, Raver has an imminent date with Jack Bauer—but he also didn’t rule it out as an eventuality. “The interesting thing about the characters in the NCIS world is that they can come back once they’re established,” he explains. “There certainly are folks who were in the Red team who in the future may well pop up in NCIS: Los Angeles.”
And this question is from MegaBuzz:
What else can you share bout the NCIS: Los Angeles premiere? — Shelley
ADAM: If you thought that Sam and Deeks’ torture in the finale was hard to watch, sorry, the brutality ain’t over yet. More than one team member will be shot in the first episode, which also features a dismembering and a really gross (if clever) ploy involving a large chunk of skin. But it’ll all be worth it in the fight against Sidorov and Janvier. By the end of the hour, one will be dead and the other will be locked away.
Here’s a tweet from Executive Producer John Peter Kousakis:
