NCIS New Orleans may be over but fans are still curious about its cast, so where is Scott Bakula now? NCIS New Orleans starred actor Scott Bakula for seven years but where is the Agent Dwayne Pride star now?

The CBS police procedural was the franchise’s second spin-off and ran for seven successful seasons until it was announced in early 2021 it had been cancelled.

While fans were upset to see it go, the final episode felt like a true celebration of NCIS NOLA with the cast rejoicing in the streets after Pride and Chelsea Fields’ (Rita Devereaux) nuptials. Two years have gone by since it was last on the small screen with the stars moving on to other things. And, as the leading agent on the team, it’s no wonder viewers are interested to find out what the actor behind Pride has been up to.

Where is NCIS star Scott Bakula?

NCIS New Orleans’ Scott Bakula has worked on a few different projects since the drama was brought to an end.

Bar this handful of shows and films, Bakula has remained reasonably quiet since the drama’s end. He was offered to star in the reboot of Quantum Leap, reprising his role as Sam Beckett but the actor took to Instagram to explain why he chose to turn it down

Bakula wrote: “As the show has always been near and dear to my heart, it was a very difficult decision to pass on the project, a decision that has upset and confused so many fans of the original series

However, the idea of anyone ‘leaping’ around in time and walking a mile in someone else’s shoes, remains a very appealing concept and so worthy of exploration, especially given the current state of mankind.

“In that spirit, I am crossing my fingers that this new cast and crew are lucky enough to tap into the magic that propelled the original Quantum Leap into the hearts and minds of generations past and present. I wish them good luck and happy leaping!
