“NCIS: New Orleans” ended its run with wedding bells ringing — literally, as the show featured a rollicking but emotional wedding ceremony between Special Agent Dwayne Pride (Scott Bakula) and lawyer Rita Devereaux (Chelsea Field). There were also foreshadowings of things to come, as Connor (Drew Scheid), Pride’s adolescent son with cr1m1nal doyenne Sasha Broussard (Callie Thorne), appeared at the reception and expressed concerns about his mother’s long legacy of dirty deeds.
True to the TV show’s seven-year run, it was an emotional conclusion that left viewers hopeful for Loretta Wade (CCH Pounder), Sebastian Lund (Rob Kerkovich), and Patton Plame (Daryl “Chill” Mitchell). Fans were also overjoyed when Hannah Khoury (Necar Zadegan) and Quentin Carter (Charles Michael Davis) announced their engagement, and Tammy Gregorio (Vanessa Ferlito) revealed her sexual orientation to her mother.
However, now that it’s all over, how does Scott Bakula feel about the show’s demise — and Dwayne Pride’s legacy — after seven seasons of playing him?
Scott Bakula described his departure from his position as a “bittersweet” event.
Scott Bakula, as longtime TV viewers are aware, is no stranger to saying goodbye, especially when it comes to the end of a beloved TV series. The actor is best known for his five seasons as time-traveling do-gooder Sam Beckett in “Quantum Leap” (which was canceled after five seasons), as well as his four seasons as Captain Jonathon Archer in “Star Trek: Enterprise.”
Bakula described the ending of “NCIS: New Orleans” as “bittersweet” in an interview with TV Insider, when discussing his final day of filming the show. “We shot 16 episodes and are proud of the season,” he said, referring to the series’ final season being shot under social distancing regulations due to the C0v1d 19 pand3m1c.
One thing is certain: he will keep in touch with at least one of his co-stars. Bakula and Chelsea Field have been married since 2019, according to TV Insider. However, the actor has stated that he will miss shooting on location in Louisiana.
“”The city got into my blood!” he exclaimed, adding, “it’s difficult to leave.” We had the key to the city; everyone knew who I was, and I enjoyed being able to pat every cop on the shoulder and say, ‘Hey, how you doing?'”
He expressed a desire to return to New Orleans to film. Bakula also praised the character’s intelligence “I adore New Orleans and its people. The stories were always incredible “and it’s clear that he has fond memories of his time on the show.
What was the most memorable aspect of the entire event? “Captaining a tugboat in the middle of the Mississippi River!”
