What’s coming up: Although Pride and his NCIS team successfully stopped a DHS mole from attacking the NOLA port at the end of last season, the fact that his team was infiltrated will bring the FBI down from D.C. to review Pride’s entire operation and cause one of the NCIS agents to leave.
A guest star that will surprise you is… Vanessa Ferlito will join the show as a series regular and play a FBI agent sent down from D.C. to both review and work with Pride’s NCIS team. In the second episode, Tom Arnold will guest star as a friend from Pride’s past who can’t help but cause Pride problems whenever he reappears.
The strangest research we’ve done for an episode is… Actually, after all of the Naval, terrorist, hacker, and espionage research we’ve done, we’re convinced that CIA, NSA, and DOJ are all constantly monitoring every Internet search we do now!
There’s no big easy way to say this: Agent Pride’s team will be down a man when CBS’ NCIS: New Orleans opens Season 3.
TVLine has learned exclusively that original cast member Zoe McLellan, who played Great Lakes transplant Special Agent Meredith “Merri” Brody, will not be returning for the coming season.
The reason for McLellan’s exit was a creative decision, seeing as her character had been compromised in the Season 2 finale, due to her association with a Homeland Security agent who turned out to be a misguided zealot.
