Katrina Law Promoted to Series Regular for ‘NCIS’ Season 19

It’s official, Katrina will be returning in the next season of NCIS as a series regular! Her promotion was already a possibility after the announcement of her guest-star appearance. Congratulations to Katrina! Looking forward to more kick-ass moments of Jessica Knight.

DEADLINE – CBS’ venerable drama series NCIS is adding two new series regular cast members for the upcoming 19th season, Gary Cole and Katrina Law.

Cole will play a new character, FBI Special Agent Alden Park. Law plays Special Agent Jessica Knight. She was introduced in the last two episodes of Season 18 as a recurring guest star with an option to become a series regular if the show got renewed, which it did. Knight is a formidable REACT (Regional Enforcement Action Capabilities Training Team) agent who specializes in hostage negotiations and handles daily high-risk operations with skill and precision. Sharp, athletic and tough, she is fiercely tenacious and with a wry sense of humor.

Law’s promotion follows the recent exit of longtime series regular Emily Wickersham. She and Cole are joining NCIS as broadcast’s most watched scripted series is preparing to leave its Tuesday 8 PM slot for the first time to relocate to Monday in the fall.

“We haven’t shot a single frame quite yet, but with the addition of Gary Cole and Katrina Law to the cast, this is already shaping up to be one of the best seasons yet,” NCIS executive producer/showrunner Steven D. Binder said. “Going into season 19, we are excited to have new characters and stories to tell that adds to and reenergizes the world we’ve come to love over the 400+ episodes.”
