NCIS: New Orleans is a drama from the NCIS franchise about the local field office that investigates criminal cases affecting military personnel in the Big Easy, a city known for its music, entertainment and decadence.
Leading the team is Special Agent Dwayne Pride (Golden Globe Award winner Scott Bakula), aka “King,” a native of NOLA who is driven by his need to do what is right. Working with Pride is Special Agent Christopher LaSalle (Lucas Black), who plays hard but works harder; and Special Agent Meredith “Merri” Brody (Zoe McLellan), a charismatic and tough interrogator who transferred from the Great Lakes office in search of a fresh start.
Supporting them is coroner Dr. Loretta Wade (CCH Pounder), who is as eccentric as she is smart. This colorful city that harbors a dark side is a magnet for service personnel on leave, and when overindulgence is followed by trouble, Pride’s team is at its best.
From CBS’s press release, August 2016…
SEASON FINALE: While tracking stolen explosives, Pride and the team discovered Homeland Security Agent Russo was actually the mastermind behind an imminent threat to New Orleans. Special Agent Brody used her personal relationship with Russo to get close to him, clone his phone and obtain information needed to both solve the case and prosecute him. Pride and Percy boarded a riverboat and disarmed the bomb in the nick of time. In the aftermath, a formal investigation on Russo is initiated, and the team was placed on administrative leave.
COMING UP: After a sniper is at large during a crowded festival weekend, the NCIS team partners with several federal agencies on the case. The aftermath of the Russo case continues, as Brody decides to leave NCIS and FBI Special Agent Tammy Gregorio (new cast member Vanessa Ferlito) is sent to investigate Pride and his team.
