In an exciting turn of events, fans of the hit series NCIS: Los Angeles can rejoice as one of their beloved characters will be making an appearance in the upcoming third season of NCIS: Hawai'i.

With NCIS: Los Angeles concluding its remarkable 14-season run, it's time for a fresh start in the picturesque backdrop of Hawai'i.

The season finale of NCIS: Los Angeles offered a joyous wedding celebration, but it also paved the way for the continuation of the story with the inclusion of a familiar face.

Sam Hanna's Return in NCIS: Hawai'i

Confirming earlier speculation, TVLine has revealed that the original NCIS: Los Angeles character, Sam Hanna, portrayed by the talented LL Cool J, will have a recurring guest role in NCIS: Hawai'i Season 3. Vanessa Lachey, the lead star of the Hawai'i spinoff, expressed her enthusiasm for this "amazing opportunity to continue evolving the NCIS franchise."

Lachey, who previously worked alongside LL Cool J during a thrilling NCIS crossover event, eagerly anticipates the dynamic chemistry between their characters.

A Heroic Encounter

The Season 2 finale of NCIS: Hawai'i, titled Dres Irae, featured a nail-biting rescue mission involving Special Agent in Charge Jane Tennant, masterfully portrayed by Vanessa Lachey. As Tennant found herself in a precarious situation, Sam Hanna stepped in at the perfect moment, providing a well-timed sniper shot to ensure her safety.

A heartfelt conversation over the phone ensued, with Tennant expressing her gratitude and Hanna humbly downplaying his heroic actions as simply "doing his job." The call concluded with Hanna offering his unwavering support should Tennant ever require assistance.

Continuity from NCIS: Los Angeles

The finale of NCIS: Hawai'i Season 2 cleverly referenced the events of NCIS: Los Angeles Season 14, particularly the Morocco mission to save Hetty. Hanna mentioned his proximity to Tennant's location in Venezuela, highlighting the interconnectedness of the two series.

As the episode reached its conclusion, a tantalizing hint was dropped suggesting that Agent John Swift, played by the talented Henry Ian Cusick, might seek Hanna's expertise, providing occasional opportunities for the Los Angeles veteran to lend a hand.
