After months of anticipation, NCIS fans will get to watch the newest series in the franchise focusing on NCIS agents working down under. NCIS: Sydney is slated to begin airing on Nov. 14 at 8 p.m. ET. The show will also be available for viewing for subscribers on Paramount+.
In total, there will be eight episodes of the series set to air. The first handful will air during the remaining two months of 2023 while the last three episodes of the season will begin airing January 2024.
In the first episode, “Gone Fission,” we will be introduced to NCIS Agent Michelle Mackey, played by Olivia Swann, as she settles into an investigation with her Australia police counterpart Sergeant Jim “JD” Dempsey, played by Todd LaSance. The agents from NCIS will be teaming up with the Australian Federal Police (AFP) which will eventually lead to a “multinational task force to keep naval crimes in check in the most contested patch of ocean on the planet.”
The investigation begins when a navy seaman turns up dead while onboard a U.S. nuclear submarine. Since the death occurs in Sydney Harbor, the two different agencies must work together to find out what happened.
The official synopsis:
"“The death of an American seaman on a U.S. nuclear submarine during a ceremony on Sydney Harbour is investigated in a joint effort between America’s NCIS agents afloat and the Australian Federal Police.”"
Watch a sneak peek below of when NCIS agents Michelle Mackey and DeShawn Jackson (Sean Sager) meet the AFP, and Mackey and JD get into a back-and-forth about jurisdiction.
