NCIS LA’s Eric Christian Olsen confirms filming on project away from CBS drama has begun


    For over a decade, Marty Deeks (played by Eric Christian Olsen) has been keeping NCIS: Los Angeles fans gripped – in tears and in stitches – during his time in the CBS drama. Alongside on-screen wife Kensi Blye (Daniela Ruah), Deeks is undoubtedly one of the show’s most popular characters and with a 13th season in the pipeline, his popularity is only bound to grow. However, it isn’t just on NCIS: LA and through Deeks where Olsen has enjoyed success as he confirmed Hulu series Woke has finally begun filming season two.

    Olsen acts as executive producer on the series, having been involved with the project from the very beginning.

    While the NCIS: LA actor hasn’t appeared on-screen in Woke yet, the likes of Lamorne Morris and Blake Anderson among others have had no problem making the comedy a hit with Hulu subscribers.

    The official synopsis for the series reads: “Keef (Morris) is an African-American cartoonist on the verge of mainstream success when an unexpected incident changes his life.”

    And eight months on from its arrival on Hulu back on September 9, 2020, Olsen shared on Instagram his colleagues’ posts confirming season two is now well underway.

    On his Instagram Stories, Olsen shared a post from Woke writer and fellow executive producer Marshall Todd. 

    Sharing a snap of his deckchair on set, Todd penned: “We shootin’! We shootin’! #wokeonhulu #wokeseason2 #setlife #hotlanta.”

    Olsen also published to his 542k followers a post from Woke writer Keith Knight.

    “And So it Begins….#wokeseason2,” Knight penned on Instagram, alongside a snap mirroring that of Todd’s.

    The NCIS: LA star spotted the opportunity for a joke as he quipped: “The person responsible has been banished back to the CW.”

    With filming on Woke only just beginning, the second season is yet to receive an official release date.

    But away from his work on the Hulu comedy, Olsen will be back for season 13 of NCIS: Los Angeles with filming right around the corner.

    The CBS drama came to a dramatic close in season 12 with the departure of two of the show’s longest-serving stars.
