NCIS’ Sean Murray ‘Looking Forward to Seeing’ NCIS: ORIGINS

By Movieguide® Contributor

NCIS star Sean Murray is sharing his thoughts on the upcoming prequel series NCIS: ORIGINS. 

“I was aware of it before it got going. I knew about the initial ideas of it and stuff, but NCIS: ORIGINS sounds to me something that could be very, very cool,” he told TV Insider. “I mean, Gibbs in the early days of NIS and back when it was called NIS and not NCIS, I think that will be really interesting and I’m looking forward to seeing it.”

In a statement announcing the show, CBS Entertainment president Amy Reisenbach said, “We are elated and honored to continue the expansion of the NCIS universe in such a unique and unexpected way. Viewers can look forward to Mark Harmon returning to CBS to narrate the complex and mysterious backstory of Leroy Jethro Gibbs’ early years in NCIS: ORIGINS, which will build on the rich legacy of this character while reintroducing fan-favorite characters and meeting new ones.”

Murray revealed that he has “talked to Mark a little bit about it,” adding, “I know he’s excited about it.”

“I’m sure the quality control on that one is going to be — I think they’re going to hold on to that one pretty good. I think it’s going to be done really well. I really do,” he concluded. 

NCIS: ORIGINS “begins in 1991, years prior to the events of NCIS, and chronicles Leroy Jethro Gibbs’ younger years,” Deadline reported

“In the series, Gibbs (Austin Stowell) starts his career as a newly minted special agent at the fledgling NIS Camp Pendleton office where he forges his place on a gritty, ragtag team led by NCIS legend Mike Franks,” the outlet continued. 

Movieguide® previously reported on NCIS: ORIGINS:

The NCIS saga will continue in the spinoff series NCIS: ORIGINS, which explores the backstory of Mark Harmon’s Leroy Jethro Gibbs.

Harmon’s son Sean will serve as an executive producer for the show.

“The character of Gibbs has been an important part of my life for 20 years, both in watching my father craft the role and previously having the honor to play young Gibbs myself,” Sean said. “I always felt there was a tale worth telling about his earlier years, so I am thrilled to be stepping into a producing role alongside [NCIS writer-producers] Gina [Lucita Monreal], David [J. North] and my dad as we tell this story and reveal a new side of this beloved character.”

“There’s no denying the cultural and global phenomenon of the NCIS franchise for the last 20 years,” said David Stapf, President of CBS Studios. “When Sean and Mark approached us all with this exciting expansion of the universe – exploring a young Gibbs – we knew it was the next story that needed to be told. We also couldn’t be luckier to have Gina and David at the helm as co-showrunners who are not only brilliant and adept writers but know this character and universe so well.”
