''Lauren Holly is definitely dead,'' says exec producer Shane Brennan, who swears season 6 will see neither a resurrection of Holly's NCIS director, nor an immediate reunion of Gibbs' (Mark Harmon) old team. The new crew is played by Jonathan Mangum (The Drew Carey Show), Liza Lapira, and Jonathan LaPaglia (reprising their NCIS characters). But don't count the old team out. Brennan teases: ''In the opening episode there will be a lot of relieved fans, and shocked fans — a couple of big, big things happen.''
