The MacGyver star will reprise her fan favorite role as immunologist Carol Wilson on the CBS drama series. “We’re beyond excited to be able to work with Meredith Eaton again," executive producer Steven D. Binder said in a statement. "She’s an amazing actor, who brings a wonderful energy to our show. Since her last guest appearance in Season 11, we’ve been chomping at the bit to have her back whenever her schedule allowed."
Consider this an early Christmas present to a lot of longtime NCIS fans: Meredith Eaton could be coming back on board!. In a new post on Instagram, cast member Wilmer Valderrama (who plays Torres) divulged a “big secret” by sharing a video of himself alongside the MacGyver alum on set. Given that Eaton was wearing an NCIS visitor’s badge, it’s pretty darn clear that she is back to play a role. Commence your rejoicing accordingly!
