We know that everyone out there is excited for NCIS season 18 to come on the air soon. Alas, that’s not happening for so many reasons — even if there wasn’t a health crisis going on, filming still wouldn’t be underway just yet! With it, a start date for production is very much in the to-be-determined stage.

So while we do wait for more NCIS news, why not enjoy a new Wilmer Valderrama interview? On The Today Show this morning, the actor behind Nick Torres was there to primarily discuss the Harness initiative, which helps under-served communities be properly represented in the United States Census. (Read more about it here.) He also talks about the importance of diversity in media, and the impact playing a character like Torres has on his current view of the world. We would hope that he would come back and play the character again later this summer, if it is safe enough to resume filming. There is no guarantee that NCIS will take on topical subjects over the coming season, but you have to imagine that there are at least conversations happening in the wrtiers’ room (which is currently open).
Wilmer closes the interview by talking more about the possibility of a That 70’s Show reunion, which could potentially happen at some point. Nothing is confirmed, but we do think there’s a real desire for laughter right now and we’ve seen casts of other shows come together for various things. The problem with That 70’s Show is that even if you were to age up the characters a good 15 years, they’d still be in the 1990’s — Zoom calls weren’t really a thing then!
It’s always nice to see Wilmer back on TV; hopefully, there will be more about Torres’ NCIS future soon.
