NCIS: Los Angeles fans have only a few weeks left before the hit CBS show ends after 14 years - and star Medalion Rahimi has promised that "audiences will be really happy". 

"I think the audience will be really happy with the ending, the two-parter. It gives us more time to sort of tie up some loose ends. I think audiences will be really happy - and we have some special guest appearances that I can't share!" she told HELLO

"I think they'll be really excited." 

Could that special guest appearance may be none other than Hetty Lange (Linda Hunt), who was teased in a teaser clip for the March 26 episode? 

The video, which was posted to the show's official Instagram account and which you can watch below saw Hollace Kilbride and Agent Callen receive a cryptic message, which they presume is from Hetty. However, she did not appear in the episode.

NCIS: LA teases long-awaited return of fan favorite character ahead of finale

Medalion stars as NCIS Special Agent Fatima Namazi, who was assigned to the Office of Special Projects Team in Los Angeles, California. Over the course of the last few years, she has become a beloved character.

"It's been a big part of my life for the past four years, this show, and it's been like a real family," the actress added, revealing that her character's final scenes are "a little more open ended so it gives the opportunity for the audience to imagine what they wish for her".

Would Medalion be down to guest appear on one of the other hugely successful NCIS shows? "If they want to send me to Hawaii, I'm there," she quipped. "I know that they're coming out with an NCIS: Sydney and that should be really cool. I'll go! I'd love to go there as well." 

The series finale will air as a two-parter on May 14 2023 and May 21, 2023, but due to the nature of an ensemble there are some arcs that never get closure, and Medalion revealed that she "would have loved to see Fatima interact with [her parents] more". 

She also teased of the possible romance between Fatima and Devin Roundtree, who joined the team full time as a field agent after completing his FLETC training: "There was this inkling of a relationship, a romantic relationship, but we didn't really get to see it fully wrap up... but it seems like things were turning out well for her in that department."
