‘NCIS’ season 12 spoilers: Series boss on plans for Bishop, Tony, other characters

More news -With “NCIS” season 12 not too far in the future now, are you ready for some further details about many of the characters and their stories?

You’ve probably heard already that you are going to see a Ducky-centric episode earlier this season, and as we are finding out now, Bishop is also going to be heavily involved with that. Speaking in an interview with TV Fanatic, executive producer Gray Glasberg detailed some of what she will be doing both with David McCallum’s character, and also on her own:

“Starting the season off is really about Bishop grounding herself more as an agent, finding a setting as a probationary agent with the agency, proving herself more and then she goes on this fantastic trip to London with Ducky and they connect. She’s very involved with the solving of that case and then along Thanksgiving will come and for our Thanksgiving episode you’re going to meet Jake, her husband, and we’ve got all kinds of plans for Jake.”

When it comes to another familiar face in Tony, Glasberg details that while there are plans to get Michael Weatherly’s character back into the dating pool, he might not get into any sort of long-term relationship with any character right away:

“…Tony is going to go out and have fun and play the field and be Tony. And his friends are going to acknowledge that and comment on it and we’re writing some fun stuff. It’s not so much about locking Tony down with another woman. It’s about Tony being Tony and that’s the part that people need to embrace.”

These are stories that will play out over time, but you will be able to start to see them unfold coming Tuesday, September 23. Of course, we will have more updates following that. Stay tuned!
