Emily Wickersham has been cast as Bishop, and right now, she’s signed on for three episodes with the option to become a series regular and a permanent fixture with the team. Bishop is described as “a bright, educated, athletic, attractive, fresh-faced, focused and somewhat socially awkward new agent” with “a mysterious mixture of analytic brilliance, fierce determination and idealism” and has traveled a lot but “only feels comfortable at home.” Will she find a home with Gibbs’ NCIS team? Will viewers like her? We have a feeling it might take those three episodes for fans to decide if they want to see her around permanently or not, but fortunately, they won’t have to wait too long to meet her, as she’s going to be introduced during November sweeps.
Although not a permanent member just yet, she has reportedly signed up for 3 episodes with the possibility of more to come.
