“We are thrilled to have Eric join the cast,” said executive producer Shane Brennan in a statement. “He has already proved himself to be a great asset and invaluable member of the team, and Eric’s fans will be delighted to see what we have in store for him.”

NCIS: LA‘s second season kicks off with a two-hour episode on Sept. 21.

Thoughts? Happy Olsen is sticking around full time? Sad this probably means no more Vaughn on Community? Hit the comments!
