The NCIS universe started off with just the original show with Agent Leroy Gibbs (played by Mark Harmon) as the lead. Then, there was NCIS Los Angeles with Agents Callen (Chris O’Donnell) and Sam Hanna (LL Cool J), followed by NCIS New Orleans with Agent Dwayne Pride (Scott Bakula). NCIS Hawaii will be different than all of them though with a woman in charge.

WARNING: This article contains spoilers from the NCIS franchise.

Who is NCIS Hawaii’s Jane Tennant? 

Earlier this year, Deadline reported that NCIS’ creators were in talks over a third spin-off show.

This would be entitled NCIS Hawaii and follow an entirely new team in their investigations around the island state.

While CBS has yet to have officially confirmed that it is in the works, the network hasn’t denied it either.

There has been another hint at what fans can expect if and when NCIS Hawaii does arrive.

TVLine has reported that NCIS Hawaii would have a female agent in the starring role.

The publication stated that a CBS representative declined to comment on this but also said how its sources have confirmed this to be the case.

More interestingly though, is that this new agent has been tentatively given the name of “Jane Tennant”.

She will serve as the “first Special Agent in Charge of ‘NCIS Pearl.'”

No further details about Jane as a character or who could potentially play her have been released as of yet.

This would be a major step in NCIS history since all of the lead agents have been men up to this point.

In 2013, the CBS franchise did try to introduce a female co-lead with Grey’s Anatomy Kim Raver starring alongside Sex and the City’s John Corbett.

They were the stars of failed spin-off NCIS Red which was introduced through a backdoor pilot in NCIS LA.

However, the series was not picked up following the pilot so the idea for Red was cancelled.

At a similar time to NCIS Hawaii being discussed for the first time, a sadder announcement was made.

NCIS NOLA was cancelled by the network and will be coming to an end next month.

Season seven will be NCIS New Orleans’ final series, wrapping up the story of Agent Pride and the rest of his team.

All NCIS shows are going to be wrapping up their latest series in the same week.

NCIS NOLA will return for one last time on Sunday, May 23, which is when the final ever episode is going to air.

NCIS Los Angeles is going to air its season 12 finale on the same date on CBS.

Meanwhile, NCIS season 18 will come to a close a couple of days later on Tuesday, May 25.

NCIS is available to watch on CBS.
