Well, it didn’t take too long for this NCIS news to come out!
Mere minutes after we first wrote about how you can expect CBS to confirm some more news when it comes to the future status of many of their characters, we’ve now heard that Diona Reasonover has been officially promoted to series regular! What this means is that the character of Kasie isn’t going anywhere, and you can expect to see her be the replacement for Abby Sciutto. For those of you who liked her as much as we did, this is exciting news. Abby is difficult to replace and no one will replace her, but Kasie feels very different then Abby, and still brings a positive flare.
The writing was on the wall when it comes to the promotion of Reasonover to the series, largely due to the fact that Kasie was a big part of the end of season 15 as we saw her have an increased presence around the office. She was originally brought in as someone who was working alongside Ducky on his book project, but she also had the skills to run the lab and help out the team. The character established herself as fun, different, quirky, and not just an Abby carbon copy. We’re excited to see what the future of her story on the show is going to be given that narratively speaking, it does feel as though she’s off to a fairly good start.
Now, the next order of business is going to be seeing if anyone else joins her. We wouldn’t be shocked if there is a major recurring player or fractional series regular (someone who appears in a percentage of episodes) cast to fill the void left by Duane Henry’s exit. With what happened to Reeves, there is a hole that could be filled by someone else if the show so chose. Given that they are TV’s most-watched show all over the world, there will always be performers interested in taking part.
NCIS season 16 will premiere on CBS come Tuesday, September 25. We’re going to have more news on the subject of the series soon!
