Who is Jane Tennant in NCIS: Hawaii? Let’s get the spin-off series explored and consider what we know so far.

When discussing TV shows with the most dedicated following, there’s arguably no conversation without citing NCIS.

Created by Donald P. Bellisario and Don McGill, the American police procedural series served as a spin-off of Jag and premiered on CBS back in September 2003. Audiences were welcomed to chronicle the heroics of special agents from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and fan-favourites were swiftly established

It continues to go strong and season 18 welcomed fans back in November 2020.

On the other hand, there have been a handful of spin-offs, with NCIS: Los Angeles and NCIS: New Orleans emerging in 2009 and 2014, respectively.

Recently talk has turned to a fresh addition in the franchise, but who is Jane Tennant in NCIS: Hawaii?

Who is Jane Tennant? NCIS: Hawaii

It was recently reported that the forthcoming NCIS spinoff in the pipeline – titled NCIS: Hawaii – is set to feature a woman in the central role.

TVLine broke the news exclusively and the lead has been tentatively named Jane Tennant, although a CBS representative declined to comment on this. Jane would be the first Special Agent in Charge of “NCIS Pearl,” cementing her in NCIS history as the first woman helming a show in the franchise.

At this point, little else is known about the potential character, which makes sense considering that NCIS: Hawaii hasn’t officially been given a series order at the network.

Nevertheless, TVLine notes that casting for the central ensemble is currently ongoing. So, we don’t yet know who could portray the mysterious Jane Tennant, or if that will definitely even be the lead’s name.

Looking back over the show’s history, it’s perhaps with acknowledging NCIS: Red, which grabbed fans’ attention in 2013 with the promise of Kim Raver (Grey’s Anatomy) and John Corbett (Sex and the City) in the leading roles.

They were set to reprise their roles from pilots ‘Red’ and ‘Red 2’, which aired as NCIS: Los Angeles additions. However, the spin-off never materialised.

Reports of NCIS: Hawaii ushering in a female lead follows announcements that NCIS: New Orleans will officially conclude on season 7, which has been shortened.
