When is David McCallum going to be back on NCIS in the role of Ducky? We know that, in general, his appearances are sporadic at this point. He’s still considered a major part of the show family, but we feel like production in general is being especially careful with him during the pandemic. We’re excited to get him whenever there’s a chance to do so, especially since he’s often contributing something fun and insightful to a given case.
Here’s where we come bearing great news: Ducky is going to be back on the show sooner rather than later!

In a new post on Twitter in response to a question, Brian Dietzen (Jimmy Palmer) confirmed that you WILL see Ducky on next week’s episode “All Hands.” It’s absolutely a welcome sight, even if we have to wait for the episode to air in order to better understand the context.
Continuing to show McCallum is a way that NCIS allows us to be nostalgic for some of the earlier seasons; this is especially welcome since Mark Harmon has not been seen since episode 4. Are we hopeful that Gibbs will be back at some point this season? Sure, but it’s hard to start trumpeting anything there until it’s confirmed by CBS. At this point, it feels like a Gibbs return will be perfect for closer to the end of the season.
If you haven’t heard all that much about this episode of NCIS yet, “All Hands” is going to put multiple people in a precarious position as the team realizes they are victims of a surprise ambush.
What do you want to see when it comes to Ducky on NCIS season 19 coming up?
