An NCIS Romance Could Be The Key To 1 Hawai’i Character’s Return


After the cancelation of NCIS: Hawai’i, an NCIS romantic relationship might be the best way to bring back one main character from the NCIS spinoff. NCIS: Hawai’i is one of the many spinoffs from the crime drama NCIS which follows the Naval Criminal Investigative Service as they investigate crimes relating to US Navy and Marine Corps personnel. After three seasons, it was announced that NCIS: Hawai’i was canceled when CBS decided not to renew the show.

The announcement of the spinoff’s cancelation was preceded by NCIS: Hawai’i’s shocking season 3 cliffhanger. With unresolved storylines and dismissed major characters, there have been hopes that some characters may return in other NCIS spinoffs or in NCIS itself. Luckily, through a crossover episode between NCIS and NCIS: Hawai’i, NCIS has already established a romantic relationship between a special agent from both teams, heightening the chances of a key character’s return.

Jane Tennant’s Relationship With Nick Torres Could Result In A Major NCIS Role

Jane And Nick Have A Shared History

Season 19 of NCIS had a crossover with season 1 of NCIS: Hawai’i and established a relationship between Nick Torres and Jane Tennant. The crossover hinted that something happened between them in Orlando. At the time, Wilmer Valderrama’s Nick was dealing with unresolved feelings for Emily Wickersham’s Ellie Bishop so it made sense to leave the relationship as a past fling. However, as NCIS season 22 is being prepared, bringing Vanessa Lachey’s Jane back to the NCIS universe through her connection to Nick could be the best way to give Jane a new major NCIS role.

“Given Jane’s already established relationship with Nick and Jane’s leadership and experience in NCIS , it is a possibility that Jane could return in a major role.”

Bringing back NCIS: Hawai’i characters, including Jane, is an exciting possibility for the show’s future after NCIS season 21 finale. Given Jane’s already established relationship with Nick and Jane’s leadership and experience in NCIS, it’s certainly plausible that Jane could return in a major role. Season 21 also hinted at Jessica Knight’s exit, which leaves a spot open on the team that Jane could potentially fill.

Jane Tennant’s Return Could Resolve Loose Ends From NCIS: Hawai’i

NCIS: Hawai’i Season 3 Could Finally Get Answers

The abrupt cancelation of NCIS: Hawai’i led to a major unresolved storyline surrounding the mystery behind Jane Tennant’s mother. The season also ended without explaining what Jane’s old mentor Maggie was about to reveal to her. With the unexpected cancelation, Jane’s story remains uncertain. Because of this, bringing her back through her connection with Nick could finally lead to resolutions that the show never had the chance to answer. The NCIS: Hawai’i season 3 cancelation was a mistake, but bringing Jane back and finishing her story could be one way to rectify that.
