According to US media reports, McCallum died of natural causes in a New York hospital, surrounded by his family. McCallum was actually the only actor to have appeared in all seasons of "NCIS" to date: between seasons 1 and 15 he appeared in a leading role as the senior medical researcher, while for the past five seasons he has settled for guest roles due to his advanced age.

The final episode was the fourth of the show's 20th season, airing in October 2022 ("NCIS" was renewed earlier this year for season 21, but production has been delayed due to strikes paralyzing Hollywood).
