Tv Season Info

The 10th series of the military-themed crime drama picks up mere seconds after the Series 9 finale in which a car bomb exploded in the Navy Yard and ripped through NCIS headquarters. Questions abound about who made it through unscathed, but one thing is for certain: revenge-minded terrorist Harper Dearing (Richard Schiff) is behind the attack. The president gives permission for Dearing to be terminated with "extreme prejudice," if necessary, and Gibbs (Mark Harmon) takes him at his word. As for Ducky (David McCallum), he goes on medical leave to recover from a massive heart attack and uses the time to reinvestigate a case from 12 years earlier that has implications in the present. Later, Ziva's father, Mossad director Eli David (Michael Nouri), visits Washington, D.C., to work on a peace treaty with an Iranian intelligence officer but a deadly turn of events during his stay once again devastates the NCIS family. The result is a massive international manhunt that brings Gibbs and his entire team under investigation by the Department of Defense. The probe threatens to end Gibbs' career, along with a number of his loyal colleagues. Michael Weatherly, Cote de Pablo, Pauley Perrette, Sean Murray, Rocky Carroll and Brian Dietzen also star.

Audience Reviews for NCIS: Season 10

  • Dec 30, 2017
    Even though it comes of the heels of two of the best seasons of the show, season 10 is still a much welcome entry that has a rather shocking and unneeded midseason finale but continues what viewers have come to love in its deep, fleshed out characters whose comaraderie and office humor is a rare gem even in the darkest of situations.
  • Apr 12, 2014
    Excellent season of the already excellent show. It continues to have smart writing, great characters, funny dialogue between its cast, great action, and great performances from its cast.
