Last week came word that David James Elliot will reprise his famed “JAG” character, Navy Captain Harmon Rabb Jr., in an upcoming multi-episode arc of “NCIS: Los Angeles” in CBS.
“JAG” ran for ten seasons and spawned the original “NCIS” as a spin-off which launched its own mega-franchise including multiple spin-offs like “NCIS: Los Angeles”.
Today comes word that his co-star Catherine Bell is set to join him, reprising her role of Lt Col. Sarah ‘Mac’ MacKenzie. The plan at the moment is for the duo to only do a joint arc on “NCIS: LA,” but their appearance together has raised talk that should it be a success it could lead to some sort of “JAG” revival.
Bell will reprise her role in the season finale episode airing on Sunday, May 19th. In the episode, as the NCIS team tries to uncover a complicated network of ISIS sympathizers who look to be planning an attack on US aircraft carriers and possibly worse.
The pair’s arc incorporates the last two episodes of the current season and the first two of the next season. They last played the roles in the “JAG” finale in 2005.
