‘NCIS’: Brian Dietzen Confirms Another Fan Favorite Will Return Sooner Rather Than Later
Following a brief production pause, the NCIS cast and crew are back on set and producing new episodes. The most-watched drama on television will also return to CBS on Monday, January 17, with an all-new episode. And star Brian Dietzen (Jimmy Palmer) has confirmed that a fan favorite will be back sooner rather than later.
‘NCIS’ production was halted following a positive C0V1D test.
NCIS season 19 production was halted in early January after a member of “Zone A” on set tested positive for C0V1D. Zone A is said to include the regular cast and crew members who work with them on a regular basis.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, production on a number of shows that film in Los Angeles has resumed as of January 14. NCIS and its spinoff NCIS: Los Angeles are among the shows that have been resurrected.
‘All Hands’ will be the title of Episode 11.
Season 19, Episode 11, “All Hands,” is the next new episode of NCIS. And it will air on CBS on Monday, January 17. The episode’s promo depicts the team being caught off guard by a surprise ambush. In the midst of a full-fledged shootout, it is revealed that the other side is made up of people posing as members of the Navy.
Agent Parker (Gary Cole) declares at the end of the 20-second clip, “this whole thing was a set up.” Aside from her job, fans will learn more about Katrina Law’s character Jessica Knight and her extended family through a side plot.
Brian Dietzen, star of ‘NCIS,’ has confirmed the return of a fan favorite.
David McCallum has played Dr. Ducky Mallard on NCIS since the show’s inception in 2003. However, the 88-year-old chose to reduce his role on the show five years ago. In addition, his character retired as a medical examiner. Ducky is now the NCIS historian. And the character appears in only a few episodes per season.
When will McCallum be back? Brian Dietzen has confirmed that his co-star will return for episode 11 “All Hands.” Because production was concerned about McCallum’s health during the pand3m1c, his appearances in recent seasons have been few and far between.
Brian Dietzen is working on a new episode.
Fans will soon be able to watch an episode written by Dietzen. Since season one, the long-running series regular has played medical examiner Jimmy Palmer. However, this is the first time the actor has received a writing credit on the show.
Dietzen did not reveal the title of the episode he wrote when he announced the news on Instagram. However, the photo he posted featured his script, which was labeled with the episode number “1913.” This corresponds to Season 19, Episode 13, with an expected air date of late January or early February.
Dietzen also revealed that Meredith Eaton will reprise her role as immunologist Carol Wilson in the episode he wrote. She had previously appeared in three episodes, beginning with her introduction to the team via Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette) in the season 7 episode “Faith.” Her most recent appearance was in season 11’s “Homesick.”
A crossover with ‘NCIS: Hawai’i’ is on the way.
When NCIS and NCIS: Hawai’i returned to CBS after their winter break, the stars of both shows announced a crossover event on social media. Law and Wilmer Valderrama (Nick Torres) both confirmed that they would be traveling to Hawaii to film the special episode.
“It’ll be great to be back on the island solving cr1mes,” Law, who played Quinn Liu on Hawaii Five-0, said to the camera.
Vanessa Lachey (Jane Tennant) of NCIS: Hawai’i revealed that the special crossover event will air on CBS on Monday, March 28.
