The announcement of Bell's appearance came just a few days after it was revealed that her "JAG" co-star, David James Elliot, would also be featured in the story.

After much speculation, Bell took to her personal Instagram account to confirm the rumors, claiming that she is very excited to be a part of the show.

A GREAT FEMALE ROLE MODEL

R. Scott Gemmill, the executive producer of "NCIS: Los Angeles," praised Bell's character, describing her as a strong and smart woman who managed to hold her own in a world dominated by men.

“Not only is it great to be working together again as friends, but to be able to write for Catherine and have her same character interact with our NCIS: Los Angeles characters now, that’s wonderfully surreal. It feels like everything has come full circle.”
