NCISLA Classified Preview: “New Beginnings, Part I” (S14E20)

Title: New Beginnings

Airing: May 14th, 2023

Filmed: February 2023

What CBS is telling us:When an ATF agent goes missing, the bureau seeks help from the NCIS team to investigate stolen military-grade weapons and locate the agent. Also, Callen and Anna continue to plan their wedding, Rountree’s sister interviews for medical school and Sam encourages his father to take part in the drug trial, on part one of the series finale of the CBS Original series NCIS: LOS ANGELES.

What we think is happening: Time to (almost) say goodbye! 😭 Our team is yet again assisting another agency, as the future begins to reveal itself.

Next week – we will have one final Classified Preview, where I will compile some of the many “farewell” posts from cast, guest stars, and crew that have been shared in honor of this wonderful show and its journey!

Insider Info

TVLine did an interview with Daniela, which you can READ HERE

Eric and Daniela did some CBS morning talk show rounds on Friday, but I’ve not seen many posted online. If your local CBS station has a video out there similar to these, let me know and I’ll add them to the post!


Official Promo Photos: Check them out on our page HERE



Sneak Peeks: 

This last one looks like the Sam/Callen one from above, but it is DIFFERENT! They put the wrong picture with this clip (Or the wrong clip with the video, we’ll never know which!)
