Most of the trailer is an interview with Vanessa Lachey, with both the actress and CBS stressing the importance of Hawaii featuring NCIS’s first female lead.
At the start of the trailer, Lachey says: “I am the first female lead of the NCIS franchise and I don’t take that lightly.”
She continues: “I’m excited to bring a different layer to this role and hopefully inspire this next generation of young girls and women.”
It isn’t clear how this new series will connect to the wider NCIS franchise, with Lachey’s Jane Tennant being a completely new character for the series.
As for the location of the new series, Lachey explained: “Hawaii is the perfect setting for NCIS in the next chapter of the franchise.
“I myself have travelled there for a little bit, I was born on an airforce base in the Philippines and travelled back and forth to Hawaii.”
She adds: “I’m interested to show the depth to the people of Hawaii, there’s so much beauty there, there’s so much culture there and hopefully I can portray to everyone and show the beautiful side of Hawaii.
The star is also known for her roles in Call Me Kat, BH90210, Truth Be Told and Dads.
The trailer, which dropped on YouTube, has fans just as excited as Lachey for the premiere of the upcoming show.
Many took to the comments, with one fan saying: “Ok I need paramount plus right now.”
Another said: “About time!!! I hope they have a cast and extras more representative of the diversity in Hawaii- can’t wait!”
A third said: “I hope they get native Hawaiians on their team. Being in Hawai’i her team should be mostly POC. Not to add diversity, but because Hawai’i is just like that already.”
NCIS Hawaii will be available to watch on CBS and Paramount Plus.
