Mariel Molino Joins The Cast Of ‘NCIS’ Prequel Series

CBS’s “NCIS” prequel series has welcomed Mariel Molino to its ensemble, as confirmed by an entertainment news website.

Molino joins the previously announced lead, Austin Stowell, in the series titled “NCIS: Origins.” Originally ordered by CBS in January, the show is slated to launch during the 2024–2025 broadcast season. Mark Harmon, renowned for his portrayal of Gibbs over nearly two decades in the main series, will serve as the show’s narrator and executive producer.

“NCIS: Origins” is set in 1991. The official description states, “Gibbs (Stowell) embarks on his journey as a newly minted special agent at the budding NIS Camp Pendleton office, where he establishes his position within a gritty, makeshift team led by NCIS legend Mike Franks.”

Molino assumes the role of a new character in the “NCIS” universe, Special Agent Lala Dominguez. Described as “a former Marine navigating the male-dominated field of the 1990s with unwavering determination and a dark sense of humor,” Dominguez’s story intertwines with that of Leroy Jethro Gibbs, promising an enigmatic narrative filled with intrigue.

Molino boasts previous TV credits, including “The Watchful Eye,” “Promised Land,” and “Papis muy padres.” Her filmography includes roles in “The Shade” and “Crazy for Change.” She is represented by Independent Artist Group, EKG Talent Group, and Goodman Genow.

David J. North and Gina Lucita Monreal co-wrote the pilot for “NCIS: Origins” and serve as co-showrunners and executive producers. Both have been seasoned writers on “NCIS” for a decade, with North currently co-showrunning the main series. Mark Harmon takes on the role of executive producer alongside his son, Sean Harmon. CBS Studios oversees production.

This expansion marks the latest installment in the burgeoning “NCIS” franchise. Alongside the main series, which recently launched its 21st season, CBS currently airs “NCIS: Hawaii,” while “NCIS: Sydney” streams on Paramount+ and CBS. Previous entries include “NCIS: Los Angeles” and “NCIS: New Orleans.”
