Hannah Khoury (Necar Zadegan) looked close to leaving the cast in NCIS: New Orleans Season 6, Episode 1 after Pride offered her the ultimatum of getting a demotion or resigning after she broke protocol, but the character eventually decided to stay on the team.

What Will Happen in NCIS: New Orleans Season 6?

NCIS NOLA bosses have revealed the plots that will see Cassidy and Cahill enter the series. Pride's mother will appear for real in the season after we saw him hallucinate her in Season 5. In Season 6, viewers will see him actually pay a visit to his ailing mom.

Cade LaSalle, meanwhile, will be introduced as Christopher's bipolar brother who has gone missing after going off of his medication. However, in a TV Insider interview, executive producer Christopher Silber said that he "realizes something [else] has gone wrong" after he tracks down his sibling.

The EP also teased that the season would dig deeper into Pride's character, saying: "We get to the heart of why he is built like he is—saving people at great personal risk."

Silbert's fellow EP Jan Nash told Parade: "Especially as we start the season, the cases, even if they're not more personal, they do seem that we are living in a space where things have real repercussions on our characters

"So, I think that we might at least for some amount of time step back from the larger cases that involve large conspiracies or political organizations and things like that and deal with things that have real, emotional and personal stakes for our characters."
