NCIS confirmed to fans on Thursday via a new Instagram post that filming for season 20 has begun. In honor of this, longtime NCIS star Brian Dietzen has shared a new photo from behind the scenes. In it, he reintroduced his much-loved character, medical examiner Jimmy Palmer. Examine it out.
“Hello again, Jimmy,” Dietzen wrote alongside a photo of Jimmy’s iconic round glasses and the actor’s own set chair. These are now on my face. Let’s get started.”
Fans liked the post hundreds of times in the first few minutes. “Go and shine Brian!” one NCIS fan wrote in the comments, while another said, “Welcome back to Jimmy Palmer.”
NCIS: Los Angeles returns to CBS on Monday, September 19th, for Season 20. The premiere of the beloved drama will be preceded by the debut of its rookie spinoff, NCIS: Hawai’i, which will air at 8 p.m. Then, later this fall, NCIS: Los Angeles, the first spinoff series, will premiere its 14th season on Sunday, October 9th.
He wrote on Instagram:
“Hello again Jimmy.
These are going on my face now.
Let’s do this.”
Wilmer Valderrama from ‘NCIS’ Will Appear In Another Crossover..?
Much of our attention was focused on the team’s special agent in charge, Alden Parker, during the season 19 finale of NCIS. Parker was framed for murd3r in the season’s final episodes, with his team investigating, before fleeing with his ex-wife and FBI agent Vivian Kolchak. However, while we wait to see what happens next for Parker, we’re focusing on another major NCIS character. Another NCIS/NCIS: Hawai’i crossover is possible.
Despite its inexperience, NCIS: Hawai’i has already collaborated with the cast of the flagship series for a dynamic crossover event near the end of its first season. There, we discovered that the Pearl-based team’s special agent in charge, Jane Tennant, had a close personal history with Nick Torres of the DC-based team. As we saw in that exciting episode, the two first met while on assignment in Orlando.
Now, it appears possible (or perhaps we’re just hoping) that a cryptic post from Tennant’s actress Vanessa Lachey means the two shows will reunite.
“NCIS: Hawai’i Season 2 begins filming TODAY!!!” Lachey made the announcement earlier this month on Instagram. “Who’s up for it?!?” “We are starting out with a bang (hint hint: #TNT),” she wrote at the end of the caption.
Some NCIS fans believe the actress is referring to the recurring character “Boom Boom” from the spinoff series. Others, however, believe the TNT refers to two distinct characters: Tennant and Torres. Torres actor Wilmer Valderrama said of the two characters ahead of NCIS and NCIS: Hawai’i’s first crossover, “You’re going to really like how good they are at doing the job together.”
Given the overwhelming positive response to the first crossover earlier this season, we’re hoping for another spectacular event in season 20 of NCIS.
