NCIS Prequel Has Already Got Something Wrong About Young Leroy Jethro Gibbs


NCIS fans quickly spotted discrepancies in Leroy Jethro Gibbs’ appearance in the new prequel series, NCIS: Origins, as CBS unveils a younger version of the iconic character.

CBS is gearing up for its next venture in the NCIS universe with the introduction of the series NCIS: Origins.

The new series is a prequel exploring the early days of Mark Harmon’s iconic character, Leroy Jethro Gibbs.

Following the surprise cancellation of NCIS: Hawai’i, the network is set to fill the gap with this new series in the upcoming television season.

Unlike previous expansions, this series marks the first prequel for the franchise, delving into its extensive backstory.

NCIS: Origins will focus on Gibbs’ initial experiences at the agency, offering fans a glimpse into his formative years in law enforcement.

NCIS: Origins is set in the early 1990s and follows Gibbs as he begins his career at Camp Pendleton.

This is around the time he joins Mike Franks’ team shortly after the tragic deaths of his first wife and daughter, Shannon and Kelly.

The role of young Gibbs has been recast with Austin Stowell stepping in for Mark’s son Sean Harmon, who previously portrayed younger versions of Gibbs on NCIS.

While Mark will not return in his usual acting capacity, he remains integral to the series, lending his voice as the narrator and serving as a co-executive producer alongside his son.

The promotional push for NCIS: Origins has begun, with CBS showcasing the first official image during their upfront presentations.
