NCIS: Sydney continues the NCIS franchise’s legacy
NCIS: Sydney serves as the first NCIS franchise’s first international spin-off. Following the same premise as its predecessors (NCIS: Los Angeles, NCIS: Red, NCIS: New Orleans, and NCIS: Hawaiʻi), the show centers on the NCIS and Australian Federal Police (AFP) agents as they team up to investigate crimes.
The show’s official logline reads: “With rising international tensions in the Indo-Pacific, a brilliant and eclectic team of U.S. NCIS agents and the Australian Federal Police (AFP) are grafted into a multinational task force to keep naval crimes in check in the most contested patch of ocean on the planet.”
NCIS: Sydney stars Olivia Swann as NCIS Special Agent-in-Charge Michelle Mackey, Sean Sagar as NCIS Special Agent DeShawn Jackson, Todd Lasance as AFP Second-in-Command JD Dempsey, Tuuli Narkle as AFP Liaison Officer Constable Evie Cooper, Mavournee Hazel as AFP forensic scientist Blue Gleeson, and William McInnes as AFP forensic pathologist Roy “Rosie” Penrose.
