sam hanna seen in NCIS

After the conclusion of NCIS:LA, LL Cool J was seen in the Moroccan desert. He’s returned, but this time he’ll be joining the Hawaii team. He appeared as a cameo in the Season 2 finale of NCIS: Hawaii, and showrunners have confirmed that we will see a lot of Sam Hanna in Season 3.

To avoid spoilers, in the final episode of Season 2, we see Jane Tennant and Kate Whistler in some trouble when Sam calls them and tells them that he helped them. He claims that he was in the neighborhood and decided to assist them. This marks his return to the show, and everyone, including the fans, appears to be very excited about it.

LL Cool J will appear as a recurring character on NCIS: Hawaii.


All of us at NCIS: Hawai’i have been huge fans of LL Cool J for years and couldn’t be more thrilled or honored to be adding his spectacular talent to our ohana for season three.One of the most beautiful things about working on NCIS: Hawai’i is the show’s ability to bring the franchise together.

We have had so much fun spreading the aloha to NCIS and NCIS: LA with the triple crossover. Now, we have the amazing opportunity to bring Sam Hanna to Hawai’i to help the island solve some cases and maybe have a few laughs in the process. Welcome to the ohana, Todd! It’s going to be a fun ride!


Season 3 of the show is scheduled to premiere in Fall 2023, but the exact date of the first episode is unknown.
