Quincy is returning to NBC. Jack Klugman will return to his former network to guest-star on “Third Watch” this season as an elderly man struggling to remain in his home against the wishes of his son, who wants to place him in a nursing home.
Klugman is known for his starring role as the sloppy sportswriter Oscar Madison on “The Odd Couple” from 1970-75. He portrayed Dr. Quincy on “Quincy, M.E.” , which ran on the Peacock Network for eight years.
Klugman’s episode, “Run of the Mill,” will air later this year.
