NCIS New Orleans has been renewed and the CBS is now working on the latest series. The drama will consist of a total of 16 episodes like original series NCIS. Thanks to the pandemic, many of the network's shows have been given a shorter run, with NCIS New Orleans series six having 20 episodes and season five having 24. Season seven will kick off on the network next week on Sunday, November 8.
Agent Dwayne Pride (played by Scott Bakula) usually likes to keep his cards close to his chest when it comes to his personal affairs.
But what fans do know about Pride is that he has an ex-wife called Linda Pride and a daughter named Laurel (Shanley Caswell).
Linda featured in one of the two backdoor pilot episodes of NCIS New Orleans which was part of an episode in NCIS season 11 in May 2014.
This then led to the spin-off being picked up for a full season a few months later.

Linda had only been in that very first episode of NCIS New Orleans but had been talked about on numerous occasions.
She did make a second appearance though earlier this year in series six, much to fans' surprise.
Linda returned in the episode Predators, reuniting with her ex-husband as they helped to plan Laurel's wedding together.
Even though it hasn't been confirmed Linda will be back, their daughter's wedding has not been shown yet so it is likely she is going to return when that episode airs.
