Cody James Reedy
The naval crime drama is in the middle of its 17th season and shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon. Thousands of people have been involved in the show over the years, whether they are actors, crew or contributors. But what is Cody James Reedy’s connection to the series?
Who is Cody James Reedy?
When the fourth episode finished earlier this week, just before the opening credits, a title card dedicated to Cody James Reedy came up.
On the card, it said: “In memory of our friend and colleague Cody James Reedy. We will miss you.”
A title card is something that is meant to honour someone who is important to the show.
Usually when these cards are used, it is when someone has sadly passed away but made an invaluable contribution to the show in some way.
They are used for colleagues who work on the series but can also be used if the person was the inspiration behind the story told in the episode.
At this time, there is no further information about who Cody James Reedy was or his connection with the show.
There is no online obituary but the team behind NCIS obviously felt that it was important that Cody’s memory was honoured.
The episode which his title card was played after was called Someone Else’s Shoes which was dedicated to honouring veterans.
CBS’ synopsis on the show reads: “The NCIS team links a bizarre crime scene at Arlington National Cemetery to a string of attacks on homeless veterans.
“Also, Vance orders McGee, Bishop, and Torres to complete hours of evidence garage cleanup duty for withholding information.”

Questions are still circling around whether or not Ziva David (Cote de Pablo) will make a comeback to the show after she briefly reappeared to give Gibbs (Mark Harmon) a warning.
If Ziva does rejoin the team, a return could then also be on the cards for Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly), her “will they, won’t they” love interest.
He left the show after finding out that Ziva had his daughter Tali and wanted to spend his time looking after her .
According to Jessica Carter
Unfortunately, at the moment, there is no clear information as to who Cody James Reedy is — at least in a manner that we can properly verify. There is no clear information online in the form of a obituary, or some other information that attaches him to NCIS as a part of the show family. This is a delicate subject, given that tributes are often a solemn, private thing. In this occasion, the production of NCIS felt it important to honor Reedy at the conclusion of this episode, and it may be an instance of them wanting to spotlight someone who would not otherwise have one.
Through this, Cody James Reedy is not forgotten. His legacy will live on through subsequent airings of this episode. NCIS is the sort of show that does get significant play after the fact, in repeats and in various places all over the world.
NCIS season 17 airs weekly on Tuesday evenings on CBS.
