Diane Neal Returns For NCIS Season 12: September 23rd Premiere Date, Plot and Cast News
NCIS character Abigail Borin (played by actress Diane Neal) is officially staying on with the police procedural drama for the upcoming 12th season. Pauley Perrette, who stars as Abby, revealed the cast update in a recent Tweet, along with a picture from the set where they ran in to each other:
“LOOK WHO’S ON #NCIS SET!!! @DianeNeal It’s Abby and Abby!!! Yay! Love!” Tweeted Perrette.
The Abigail Borin character is a Coast Guard Investigative Service member who pops up on a semi regular basis when the plot requires. We last saw her on Season 11, episode 6, when she aided the NCIS crew in investigating a bombing on an oil rig. During the episode she said she’d like to apply to NCIS, which could be a hint for the character in the season 12.
Leslie Hope is also confirmed for more appearances as SecNav Sarah Porter, beginning with an episode entitled “Choke Hold” in October according to TV Guide.
It’s already been reported that Stephanie Jacobsen has been signed as a new regular, playing FBI Agent Leia Pendergast, and new love interest of Tony. Also British actor Adam Campbell will make a handful of appearances playing a young Dr. Mallard in a few flashback themed episodes.
NCIS season 12 premieres on CBS on September 23rd. They released a trailer earlier this week hyping McGee and Gibbs’ explosive trip to Russia that sees them shot out of the sky and fighting for survival.
