The couple, who both had very difficult childhoods, tried to conceive in the previous episodes of NCIS: Los Angeles. However, they suffered a miscarriage.

But in Season 13, fans can expect to see Kensi and Deeks trying their hardest to have a baby. However, it remains unclear if they will finally be successful.

While speaking with TV Insider, Ruah said that her character, Kensi and Olsen's character, Deeks just want a baby to love and dote on.

"Kensi and Deeks ticked the box [on the adoption application] that race wasn't an issue but didn't think what that might entail. You want this child to relate to their natural-born culture and fit in," the actress said.

While speaking with TV Line, showrunner Scott Gemmill said that the show's writers haven't figured out how they will end the couple's story.

"We haven't resolved how we want to end that. We have a few irons in the fire. With those sort of relationships, sometimes we give ourselves some options, play out the season and see what feels right," he said.

Throughout the first 10 seasons of NCIS: Los Angeles, the number of episodes was at an all-time high at 24 installments each.

However, this number was reduced to just 22 episodes in Season 11 and Season 12 only had 18 episodes.

It's understandable why there were only 18 episodes last season because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
