Meredith Eaton, who is best known for her role on “Boston Legal,” returning to “NCIS” is exciting news to say the least. Speaking with TV Insider, “NCIS” executive producer Steven D. Binder explained that Eaton’s appearance has been a long time coming. “We’re beyond excited to be able to work with Meredith Eaton again. 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,” he said. “And now, with the team desperately needing the help of an expert immunologist, who better than Meredith’s beloved ‘Carol Wilson’ to come and save the day? The only real question is, will she be in time?”
Brian Dietzen didn’t announce the name of his episode, but the photo of his script did include episode number “1913.” Per Showbiz Cheat Sheet, this translates to Season 19, Episode 13, which means Wilson will be on screen sometime around late January or Early February 2022. Leading up to her return, Dietzen and Wilmer Valderrama (Nick Torres) celebrated the news with Instagram posts. Valderrama posted a short video to his Instagram, while Dietzen shared a photo of himself and Eaton. “Sometimes you get to write something for tv. And sometimes that means you get to hang out with friends you haven’t seen in far too long,” Dietzen wrote. “So happy you’re here [Meredith Eaton]!” Stay turned for the coming episode.
