NCIS: Hawai'i is about to drop its first two-parter, and its brought in a Hawaii Five-0 star for the ride.

As reported by TVLine, Beulah Koale will be joining the NCIS franchise's latest spin-off for 'Spies, part 1' and 'Spies, part 2'.

The actor is best known for playing Junior Reigns in seasons 8-10 of Hawaii Five-0, and reprised the role in an episode of Magnum PI. He's also got a film with Karen Gillan and Aaron Paul in the pipeline.

The NCIS: Hawai'i two-parter will see Jane Tennant and her team investigate the death of a Navy engineer named Joseph Chan, who has links to Jane's friend and mentor Maggie Shaw, who herself has been abducted.

Koale's character, David Sola, works for New Zealand intelligence and has come to Hawai'i as he is also pursuing the case, and the plot thickens as he believes the death is related to Chinese black ops.

Making things even more interesting is the fact that 'Spies, part 1' has been directed by none other than Star Trek: The Next Generation actor, TV presenter and multiple time NCIS: New Orleans helmer LeVar Burton.

NCIS: Hawai'i was originally ordered for 13 episodes before being given a full season order, although we don't know how many episodes that will entail. This is purely conjecture, but we wonder if this two-parter was originally envisaged as a season finale?

The first part will air on January 24, while the second part is apparently not set to air until February 28, although that might be a placeholder date for now.

What we do know is that a crossover between the latest spin-off and its parent show is set to air on March 28, bringing the casts of both dramas together to do some investigating and what not.

NCIS: Hawai'i airs on CBS in the US. It does not have a UK broadcaster just yet.
