TV Line reports that in February, Delilah Fielding (Margo Harshman) and Timothy McGee (Sean Murray) will be spending their first Valentine’s Day since moving in together. McGee will struggle to figure out what he should get his girlfriend for the special occasion.

Meanwhile, Dr. Donald Mallard or Ducky (David McCallum) will be tackling an exciting task in the back half of Season 13. For the first time ever, he will be conducting a remote autopsy on a murdered deep sea diver. The victim, along with his fellow divers, will be contained in a dive chamber after they return to the surface. Ducky must make the examination while all the divers, living and deceased, are still in the pressure-controlled chamber.

With TV ratings remaining consistent, it is confirmed that “NCIS” will be renewed for another season. In another report, TV Line shares that two new cast members will be introduced in Season 14. The two characters will be series regulars and it remains to be seen what kind of new personalities will be added to the already colourful cast.

After Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) of the Washington DC team and Dwayne Pride (Scott Bakula) of the New Orleans team bring their teams to work together on the case, it’s back to regular programming for both shows.
