Actress Linda Hunt released a statement via TVLine hinting her return on “NCIS: Los Angeles.”


In the previous season, Chris O’Donnell’s character had a phone call from his boss, Henrietta “Hetty” Lange, played by none other than Hunt.

At the time, she had gone off to somewhere, and there was no way of knowing when her return was going to be. The scene left man questions to avid viewers.

Recently, Hunt may have provided an answer.

Lange’s sudden disappearance had to be written on the show following Hunt’s real-life car incident on July 2, 2018.

According to Shared, the Academy-Award winner was turning left when she suddenly crashed onto a car and collided with another. She had minor injuries and was treated on the scene, but still rushed to the hospital after.

In a recently released statement gathered by TVLine, Hunt said, “I first want to say how much I appreciate the outpouring of support from the NCIS: Los Angeles fans following my car accident this summer.”


“Though I had hoped to return to playing Hetty at the start of the season, I had to take some additional time to recover. I look forward to returning later this season,” the statement continued.

Fans were delighted to hear the news. On Twitter, a user named Suzi Q wrote, “That’s wonderful news! Hetty is the backbone of @NCISLA."

In Season 10, Lange disappearance paved the way for Esai Morales to come in as Deputy Director Louis Ochoa.


For the upcoming season, fans are looking forward to welcoming Hunt on the show once again. CBS recently renewed the contract and confirmed that “NCIS: Los Angeles” will have an 11th season.

Hunt had been an original cast member since the beginning of the series in September 2009.

Since then, she has gained many awards, including two Teen Choice Awards for the TV Actress: Action category.

Before starting as an actress, Hunt studied at the Interlochen Arts Academy and the Goodman School of Drama. In 2008, she married psychotherapist Karen Kline, whom she had been dating for 21 years.
