What a fantastic introduction for Captain Rabb. His jet landing on the U.S.S. Allegiance and the music from JAG. Couldn't have asked for anything better! Perfect and thank you!! ☺— JoEllen Roache (@JoEllenRoache1) May 13, 2019
R. Scott Gimmell, “NCIS: Los Angeles” showrunner and “JAG” vet, shared his thoughts about Harm’s reappearance with TVLine in March. He said:
“Bringing Harmon Rabb to work with [the Los Angeles NCIS team] makes for a formidable coalition, and both entities are going to need all the help they can get when confronted with the greatest challenge of their careers.”
He continued to share how great it is to work with Elliott again after being with him on the first four seasons of “JAG,” and years again later on “NCIS.”
He also talked about Catherine Bell, former “JAG” star and current co-star of Elliott on “NCIS,” in a statement he made earlier this year.
“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,” Gimmell said.
