Of course, seeing Fornell back on this show is going to bring back memories of Mark Harmon as Gibbs and who knows? Maybe Tobias will give us an update on what his old friend is doing in Alaska. He is certainly going to be appearing in a pretty crowded episode, as the premiere will also be featuring more of Teri Polo as Vivian alongside several cast members from NCIS: Hawaii — this is part one of a two-hour crossover event.

To get a few more details on the episode if you haven’t seen them already, go ahead and check out the official synopsis:

“A Family Matter” – Special Agent Alden Parker (Gary Cole) is still on the run with his ex-wife Vivian (Teri Polo), so the team investigates who from his past might have a personal vendetta against him in hopes of clearing Parker’s name. Enlisting the help of NCIS: Hawai’i’s Special Agent Jane Tennant (Vanessa Lachey) and Computer Specialist Ernie Malick (Jason Antoon), who are in town meeting with Director Leon Vance (Rocky Carroll) in preparation for a global military exercise, the group tracks down their prime suspect, The Raven, on the CBS Original Series NCIS, Monday, Sept. 19 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, and available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+.*
