NCIS Los Angeles season 11, which returns to CBS on September 29, may have a heavyweight character come back to the show. Goldberg, the WWE/WCW legend, may soon return to the series as Department of Justice Agent Lance Hamilton according to his Instagram. Lance Hamilton was last seen on NCIS LA in March, but might be back for season 11.
Is Goldberg returning to NCIS LA?
According to the wrestler’s Instagram, Goldberg will soon be back for NCIS Los Angeles season 11.
Last week, Goldberg posted his call sheet for NCIS LA onto Instagram.
The picture, posted on August 8, was captioned: “#hesback !!! #lancehamilton returns to @ncisla”
On the call sheet, the episode code is 1101-243, suggesting Lance Hamilton will return on either the first or third episodes of NCIS Los Angeles season 11.

The code ‘1101’ could refer to season 11, episode one, with 243 being the episode number if we count the two episodes of the ‘backdoor pilot’ for NCIS LA, which aired as part of NCIS season six.
Alternatively, if we do not count those two episodes, then episode 243 of NCIS Los Angeles will be season 11, episode three of the CBS show.
Later, Goldberg posted a Boomerang of him fanning himself while on set.
He captioned it: “Even #lancehamilton @ncisla needs a break from the heat!!!”

This picture is captioned: “Crazy weekend ahead…… @ncisla …. then @dodgeofficial #roadkilllnights ….. then off to Canada to lace ‘em up for @wwe #summerslam! THEN… another redeye and back to L.A. wrapping up #ncisla.”
Lance Hamilton was first introduced in NCIS Los Angeles season 10, episode seven, titled One of Us.
In that episode, after Sam Hanna (played by LL Cool J) and G Callen (Chris O’Donnell) have to investigate the death of an arms dealer, they seek the help of the state department.

One of the Department of Justice agents who helps them out is Lance Hamilton.
Then, in season 10, episode 19, titled Searching, Hamilton asks for their help in finding a US border patrol officer.
That episode also features another wrestling star, as WWE’s Shane McMahon, who works on a mission with Kensi.
So far, CBS has not revealed which mission Hamilton has returned to help out on.
