"NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service" will be taking a short break to be back on April 28 with a back door story of "NCIS Legend". The spin-off will be introduced for the very first time on the original series episode of "Legend (Part 1)".

The body of a Marine leads Gibbs and McGee to the NCIS OSP division in Los Angeles, where a murder investigation quickly climbs to a matter of national security in which the two offices must work together to resolve. Meanwhile, Tony begins to snoop into Ziva's personal life.

As previously reported, LL Cool J and Chris O'Donnell will be the lead stars of the spin-off and thus both are listed as the guest stars in this "NCIS" episode. LL is taking the role of Special Agent Sam Hanna, a tough but charming former U.S. Navy Seal and is "an expert on the Middle East." Meanwhile, O'Donnell is Special Agent G. Callen who is "an ordinary guy born to do undercover".

Also guest starring in the episode are Louise Lombard as Special Agent Lara Macy, Peter Cambor as Operational Psychologist Nate Getz and Daniela Ruah as Special Agent Kensi Blye.

"NCIS Legend" meanwhile, is a tentative title and is bound to change. It deals with a special division that uses enhanced and modern technology that have never been seen on television to solve crimes. Another story to this division will be in "NCIS" May 5 episode.

Callen is going to have to find a way to survive gun-shots to the chest...definitely looked like kill shots...maybe when/if they spin-off they have him wearing a bullet-proof vest...but it will be interesting...I like the twist and how they can interweave the two shows...

Jag still went on for two more years after NCIS came out. Just because there is a spin-off does not mean that NCIS is going away any time soon. Magnum PI went 8 seasons, and Jag went 10 NCIS has better ratings than both either of them at their 6th seasons. I think everyone needs to "Gibbs slap" themselves and relax.

NCIS is the best tv show on television right now ! Better than JAG ever was. PLEASE KEEP NCIS on. This new spin-off is making everyone crazy & I don't like it at all. Never mind that I hate the poeple in the spin off as well.

A spin off would be great, but DO NOT CANCEL NCIS !!! I have watched from day one and love the characters and their banter. I have even watched the reruns on USA and like it even more.

I can see why you can be a little scared because Ncis was a spin off from Jag when it ended. So when we see NCIS do a spin off we start thinking that Ncis is ending even though its not hopfully. If it was though it would say it on thing like Tv guide, the insider, and extra.

I don't think they're planning on getting rid of NCIS. They're doing another CSI type of thing. They came out with CSI and now you also CSI NY and LA and all the other, but CSI is still there and going. That's probably what they're planning on doing with NCIS. Seeing as it is so popular, they're hoping to get another popular series out of something similar to NCIS.
