NCIS season 19 has seen a number of faces come and go, and now, CBS series regular Brian Dietzen has confirmed that his character Jimmy Palmer will welcome another newcomer to the show.
Jimmy Palmer’s (Brian Dietzen) family life has taken some heartbreaking turns in recent years, not least when the NCIS Medical Examiner lost his wife Breena (Michelle Pierce) to C0V1D 19 in season 18. However, with the CBS cr1me drama still in its 19th season and Jimmy still an integral part of the show’s makeup, another look into his personal life is on the way – and fans can hardly wait.
NCIS fans will soon be able to meet Jimmy actor Dietzen’s daughter Victoria for the first time since she was a baby, according to Dietzen.
He also revealed when Jimmy and his daughter will appear on screen, revealing it will be part of an episode he co-wrote that will air at the end of February.
Dietzen announced the news on Instagram and Twitter, posting a photo of himself and the actor who plays Victoria sitting in their NCIS chairs behind the scenes.
“Who’s up for meeting Victoria?” Dietzen captioned the photo, “Feb 28th. #NCIS.”
Victoria will appear in the CBS drama for the first time since season 12.
However, with a new young actor playing the character as she matures, this will be NCIS fans’ first introduction to the star.
Of course, fans were ecstatic about the news, with some even breaking down in tears at the prospect of seeing fan favorite Jimmy’s relationship with his daughter.
“Palmer and his not so little palm,” Instagram user @sophiebellwart captioned a series of teary emojis.
“VICTORIA IS ALL GROWN UP,” @judges exclaimed, and @amerrymarque admitted, “I’m going to cry!!”
“Oh my Lord!!” echoed @aninha 2303 Finally!! “I’m so excited to meet this little cutie!!”
Similarly, @selly1302 chimed in: “OMG I’m going to cry,” followed by heart-eyed emojis.
Another fan was astounded by Victoria’s maturity, tweeting @21stcenturybobbysoxer, “HOW IS VICTORIA A TEENAGER?” DAMN, I SAW HER BEING BORN.” (Sic)
What Jimmy and Victoria will face when she returns to the fray remains to be seen.
NCIS season 19 is still not airing on CBS, so no promo or trailer has been released.
In fact, the only clue fans have as to what is on the way is the episode title, The Helpers.
With a title like this, it’s safe to assume Jimmy will be assisting his daughter in need in the upcoming installment.
Furthermore, with Dietzen co-writing the episode and the actor knowing his character inside and out, this could be an emotional deep dive into Jimmy’s family life.
Last season, Jimmy revealed that his wife Breena d1ed off-screen after contracting C0v1d, which devastated fans.
This has left Jimmy to juggle raising Victoria on his own while also working at NCIS.
