CBS viewers were thrilled when the network confirmed three of its most popular dramas would be coming together for the first time. Not only will the core NCIS team be meeting up with Jane Tennant (played by Vanessa Lachey) and her Pearl Harbour agents for another mission, but the NCIS: Los Angeles task force will finally be showing up outside of their own spin-off. Vanessa had the latest on the highly anticipated TV event on her recent Instagram update.

NCIS: Hawaii’s lead actress has confirmed the cast are currently filming the show’s upcoming crossover in Los Angeles.

Vanessa took to Instagram on Tuesday this week to answer fans’ most pressing questions about the upcoming NCIS crossover.

The three-show event was confirmed by CBS earlier this month and long-time fans of the franchise were immediately sent into a frenzy.

This will mark the first time LA agents G Callen (Chris O’Donnell) and Sam Hanna (LL Cool J) have crossed over with the mainline series since their backdoor pilot introduction.

Vanessa was joined by Lucy Tara star Yasmine Al-Bustami from her hotel room to enjoy some downtime during production.

“I have to be honest, I don’t normally Instagram Live because we are normally shooting in Hawaii but we’re now in LA shooting the crossover,” she told her followers.

Most of the NCIS franchise is shot in LA, so their location doesn’t necessarily mean Vanessa and Yasmine have been filming scenes with Chris and Sam just yet.

However, it’s certainly a promising sign that production for the crossover is making good progress ahead of its broadcast early next year.

The stars then went on to answer some burning questions from fans about the special episodes.

When asked if the crossover was really happening, Vanessa confirmed: “It’s a triple crossover.

“It’s the first time the franchise has meant all across the board.

“We have NCIS LA, NCIS Hawaii, NCIS, the mothership, which is DC. All of us. One plot, one night.”

Yasmine was just as excited as the show’s fans as she exclaimed: “Are we allowed to say that?”

Vanessa even admitted they had to delete some of her Instagram Stories for fear of spoilers.

“We’ve had way too much fun,” she said. “I actually, if I’m being honest, had to delete a couple of our responses.”

“They were a little…” Vanessa teased, winking at the camera while Yasmine burst into giggles.

The actresses then confirmed the crossover should be wrapped in about a week’s time, as each episode is filmed over seven 10-hour days.

They concluded the video by confirming they were shooting the crossover the following morning, with Yasmine complaining, “Very early!”

Vanessa’s followers were ecstatic when she again confirmed they were filming the crossover in a separate Instagram post, and, hopefully, this won’t be the end of her updates from behind the scenes.

NCIS and NCIS: Hawaii continues Sundays and NCIS: Los Angeles continues Mondays on CBS in the USA. A UK release date is yet to be announced.
