'NCIS' First Look: Meet Young Ducky

Posted on

Young Ducky is coming to NCIS—and we’ll get to meet him in the swingin’ 70s.

Later this season, Mixology alum Adam Campbell is set to play a younger version of NCIS’ loquaciously charming and universally beloved medical examiner Ducky (David McCallum), and EW has the first look.

In an episode slated for Oct. 7, Special Agent Bishop (Emily Wickersham) and Ducky travel to the U.K. when an estranged friend from his youth is connected to a case. Naturally, flashbacks abound. “To cast a young David McCallum and set it in 1970s London, we had a terrific time,” executive producer Gary Glasberg says. “It’s chock full of tidbits of information for the fans that explains where the bow tie came from—all kinds of great stuff. People should be excited about this one.”

NCIS returns Tuesday at 8 P.M. on CBS.
