Disney announced that popular action drama “NCIS” will be coming to Disney+ in the United Kingdom and Ireland. You might be wondering when the series will be arriving on Disney+, and while details are slim, here’s everything we know so far.
What is NCIS about?
NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) is more than just an action drama. With liberal doses of humor, it’s a show that focuses on the sometimes complex and always amusing dynamics of a team forced to work together in high-stress situations. NCIS Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs, a former Marine gunnery sergeant whose skills as an investigator are unmatched, leads this troupe of colorful personalities.
Gibbs, a man of few words, only needs a look to explain it all. The team includes NCIS Special Agent Timothy McGee, an MIT graduate with a brilliance for computers; NCIS Special Agent Eleanor “Ellie” Bishop, a mysterious mixture of analytic brilliance, fierce determination and idealism who specializes in international threat assessment and global preparation; the charismatic, unpredictable and resilient NCIS Special Agent Nicholas “Nick” Torres, who has spent most of his career on solo undercover assignments; and NCIS Special Agent Jacqueline “Jack” Sloane, who built her reputation as the agency’s premier forensic psychologist and enjoys challenging Gibbs.
Assisting the team as the NCIS Historian is retired medical examiner Dr. Donald “Ducky” Mallard, who knows it all because he’s seen it all; Ducky’s protégé, the naïve Jimmy Palmer, who graduated from assistant to fully licensed medical examiner and now runs the morgue and Forensic Scientist Kasie Hines, Ducky’s former graduate assistant who impressed Gibbs with her keen forensic skills during a critical time for the team.
Overseeing operations is NCIS Director Leon Vance, an intelligent, highly trained agent who can always be counted on to shake up the status quo. From murder and espionage to terrorism and stolen submarines, these special agents investigate all crimes with Navy or Marine Corps ties.
NCIS Disney Plus UK Release Date
Disney announced on Disney+ Day back in November 2021 that the popular action drama “NCIS” will be coming to the streaming service sometime in 2022.
Disney hasn’t provided an exact release date but did confirm that all existing and the new seasons will be available on Disney+. When the FOX channel closed in the UK, “NCIS” no longer had a permanent home meaning many fans were wondering how they would be able to watch “NCIS” in the UK.
CBS creates the show, so it’s unlikely to arrive on Disney+ in other countries. When Disney purchased Fox, they also acquired the distribution rights in some countries for shows like “The Walking Dead” and, in this case, “NCIS”.
Disney has announced everything that’s coming to Disney+ in March, and “NCIS” isn’t included. Unless Disney makes a surprise announcement, which is unusual but does happen, the earliest we can expect “NCIS” to arrive on Disney+ in the UK is April 2022.
UPDATE: Season 1 to 18 will be available on April 6, with the first three episodes from season 19 being released on the same day. New episodes from season 19 will then be released each Wednesday.
