A new NCIS sneak peek was shared for the upcoming tribute episode for David McCallum.

This one comes from NCIS star Sean Murray, who has played Special Agent Timothy McGee for years.

David passed away during the hiatus for NCIS, bringing his run as Dr. Donald “Ducky” Mallard to an end.

The show uses the February 19 episode to honor the memory of the actor and the character he played. It will be a very emotional night for viewers.

Actor Brian Dietzen spoke about writing the episode. He has played Dr. Jimmy Palmer for many years and was good friends with David – on and off the set.

The Stories We Leave Behind is the name of the Ducky tribute episode that serves as the second new installment for 2024.

Details about the Ducky tribute episode

“As NCIS mourns the loss of Ducky, the agents find comfort in working on one of his unfinished cases involving a woman whose father was dishonorably discharged from the Marines,” reads the full synopsis for the new episode.

Here is an emotional promo from NCIS that is running on CBS. It teases what the episode will entail – and features some characters from the past.

“Join us for a tribute to Ducky Mallard aka David McCallum this Monday 9pm on #NCIS @cbstv,” Sean Murray wrote in an Instagram post.

The post features a video from the February 19 episode of NCIS. It shows many of the main characters gathered at the office. Flower arrangements can be seen across the screen, and a somber mood encompasses them as they discuss things.

“Garden keeps growing, I see,” Director Vance states as he walks in.

“From all corners of the world,” Agent Alden Parker responds.

“As well-intentioned as they are, they don’t seem to help, do they?” Vance asks.

Agent Timothy McGee, Agent Nick Torres, and Forensic Scientist Kasie Hines mull over his words as the scene continues.

Below is that emotional scene from the February 19 episode of NCIS.
