The actress will play an NCIS Agent who was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Army and served two tours in Afghanistan.

After joining NCIS, the character built her reputation as the agency's premier forensic psychologist. Unlike the other agents, she can second-guess and challenge Gibbs, so there will be friction, but also mutual respect. She is a positive force, mischievous, and, at times, acerbic.

"We have always been big fans of Maria Bello's work and are excited to be introducing her as an agent who not only has a distinct talent, but also a unique relationship with Gibbs," said NCIS Executive Producers George Schenck and Frank Cardea.

An accomplished performer, Maria has starred in dozens of feature films, including The Cooler (for which she won a Golden Globe), A History of Violence, World Trade Center, and Prisoners.

Most recently, she appeared in the James Wan thriller Lights Out and the original series Goliath.

Season 15 of NCIS premieres Tuesday, Sept. 26 at 8/7c on CBS and CBS All Access.
