The premiere episode of Season 13 will also be the show's 300th episode. To celebrate the milestone, the show might bring back old faces.

"I always like to have fun when we hit those milestones, and, if possible, bring back familiar faces to celebrate," executive producer R. Scott Gemmill told TVLine.

Also, since Renée and Barrett exited the series last season, Gerald McRaney, who appeared as a recurring guest star, was promoted to a series regular.

McRaney plays as Retired Navy Admiral Hollace Kilbride. He has been playing the role since 2014.

"When you have an actor of Gerald McRaney's caliber, you do everything you can to make sure you get him as often as possible," Gemmill told Deadline.

"Admiral Kilbride has been an esteemed part of our universe for seven years now and we look forward to viewers seeing him come in and shake up our NCIS: LA world."

Hunt's character, Hetty, returned in Season 12 and will be staying in the upcoming season. She might be sharing duties with Killbride now that the latter has become a series regular.

"They're both very smart and very stubborn, so it makes for a fun and volatile dynamic," Gemmill told TV Insider about the duo. "Kilbride outranks Hetty, but he does respect her, even if he disagrees with her methodology and [sometimes] questions the cost of her successes."

The EP added that the new season will also show more about Hetty's mission that took her out of ops last season. She will try to resolve it on her own, but it will only suck the entire team much to Killbride's disapproval.
