The cast includes Olympians Lolo Jones and Ryan Lochte, Anthony Scaramucci, O.J. Simson murder trial witness Kato Kaelin, Jonathan Bennett, Joey Lawrence, retired NFL player Ricky Williams, comedian Tom Green, and former WWE star Natalie Eva Marie.
CBS has assured fans that "NCIS" will be back soon with the first episode of its 16th season on February 5. Only two weeks to go, but for the die-hard "NCIS" aficionados the wait is much too long.
An official synopsis reveals that Episode 1 - entitled "She" - has Gibbs working to discover the identity of a malnourished and confused 9-year-old is found hiding in a storage unit.
In order to solve the mystery, Gibbs will be delving into an old missing person case originally handled by Special Agent Ziva David. Might there be a surprise appearance by actress Cote de Pablo?

Anxious "NCIS" fans were shaken by a rumor that actor Mark Hermon who plays Jethro Gibbs in the iconic series might be leaving the show.
