Speaking to CarterMatt, executive producer Frank Cardea recently opened up on how they got Spano back in the show, despite pandemic restrictions.
He said: “Joe Spano, who plays Fornell, has always been an integral part of the show.
“He went through the same testing protocol as all of our stars and guest stars.
“We haven’t shied away from bringing in new people because of COVID; we’ve just put them through our rigorous testing program.”
NCIS season 18 airs on CBS on Tuesdays.
