Hey there, Delilah, you’re about to be on TV. Let’s just hope that you are ready to spend time with Tim McGee. (Record scratch.) Okay, so you probably know already about the Delilah character within the world of “NCIS,” even though you have not actually been able to meet her just yet. In addition to that, you may know that this is thankfully going to change very soon, which is why we are here with the first details of what producers are looking for!
According to TVLine, McGee’s new squeeze Delilah works at the Department of Defense, and is described as being both “perky” and “lovable.” It’s possible that this role could end up becoming recurring, which to us means that the show could just be testing the waters for the sake of chemistry before they make any sort of firm decision.
With this in mind, don’t take this as any sort of definitive sign that we’re witnessing a character that will eventually end up becoming the heir apparent to Cote de Pablo as a series regular on the cast. For one thing, Delilah’s attached to someone other than Tony; also, we don’t imagine that “NCIS” is going to put that burden on anyone for a while. They realize the passion that “Tiva” fans have (to the point where it was a trending topic yesterday), so they are not going to try and dogpile some poor actress with hate-tweets if she gets thrown in there right away to fill the Ziva role.
There’s not much word on when Delilah will first appear, but we expect it to be reasonably early within the season (i.e. in the first block of new episodes).
While no official promotional photos are out there on “NCIS” season 11 just yet, we do have an assortment of some other popular images taken by the cast so far during filming.
