‘NCIS’ Star Brian Dietzen Talks David McCallum’s Return for Last Two Episodes of Season 19

For nearly 15 years, David McCallum played the fan-favorite NCIS character Donald “Ducky” Mallard, the fatherly, kind-hearted chief medical examiner. In 2017, however, McCallum exchanged his series regular contract for a limited role. Though he wasn’t quite ready to say goodbye to NCIS, he was over 80 years old at that point and wanted a little more time to spend with his family.

‘NCIS’ Star Brian Dietzen Promises Tonight’s Episode Will Be a ‘Game Changer’

NCIS episodes have dropped hints for much of the spring about a possible romance between two of its characters. Jimmy Palmer, the awkward but brilliant medical examiner, decided to date again at the end of the Feb. 28 episode called “The Helpers” (you can refresh your memory from the Outsider recap here.) His wife, who died in 2020 of complications from Covid-19), came back to Jimmy in a dream. After nearly dying himself, Jimmy didn’t look far for a possible love interest. Jess Knight, the newest agent, asked him to be her plus one at a relative’s wedding. Honestly, they look good together.
