After a solid first season,'NCIS: Hawai'i' is all set to return for a second season on CBS. The show premiered in September last year, and while the first episode garnered mixed responses, the improved next set of chapters meant the network was all for giving the latest spin-off from 'NCIS' another shot to be the best police procedural.

The official synopsis reads, "The world’s most successful television series continues on the seductive shores of Hawai'i as the first female Special Agent in Charge of NCIS Pearl Harbor takes command. She and her team balance duty to family and country, investigating high-stakes crimes involving military personnel, national security, and the mysteries of the island itself. This NCIS: Hawai'i team is a skilled mix of mainland transplants who’ve relocated to the tranquility of the Pacific and wizened locals who know their mahalo from kapu." And on that note, we take a look at the impressive cast that the season boasted of.

Vanessa Lachey as Jane Tennant

The 'Love is Blind' co-host will reprise her role as a team leader in the new season. Described as a single mother, and a "keen" investigator, on the show, she's been a fan favorite in season 1. Lachey starred in several top shows including 'BH90210', 'CSI: NY', 'Disaster Movie' and 'Once Upon a Main Street'. One of the major storylines in 'NCIS: Hawai'i' Season 2 will be her budding romance with Captain Milius (Enver Gjokaj).

Yasmin Al-Bustami as Lucy Tara

Not the one to take a punch without dishing a barrel of her own, Yasmin Al-Bustami is one of the core members of the crack NCIS unit. Variety noted that her character was the sort that would always be "eager to be the first one to find that key piece of evidence, create a workaround in the bureaucracy, or tackle a suspect down a flight of stairs." In the latest season, her romance with FBI agent Kate Whistler (Tori Anderson) will take the spotlight just as it did in Season 1.

Jason Antoon as Ernie

Antoon's Ernie is the cyber intelligence specialist as Variety described his character as "a polyglot with a keen mind for technology, history, literature and all things Hawaiian. He’s a vital component of the team, who can trace an anonymous IP address or profile a suspect using only their social media footprint. Over the course of the season, he proved himself to be Tennant's most trusted tech guy with an eye for detail. Rounding up the rest of the cast are Noah Mills plays Jesse Boone, Tennant's second-in-command, Alex Tarrant as Kai Holman, Kian Talan returns as Alex Tennant, while Mahina Napoleon will play Julie Tennant in a recurring role.

'NCIS: Hawai'i' Season 2 premieres September 19 on CBS at 10 pm ET.
