NCIS will air its season 16 finale next Tuesday (May 21) on CBS, which may see Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs (played by Mark Harmon) leave the series. Agent Gibbs actor Mark Harmon has spoken about whether he will leave the series, which airs on Fox in the UK. Fox and CBS viewers will have to tune in to find out whether we will lose any cast members before NCIS season 17 starts.
Will Gibbs leave NCIS?
Gibbs is officially not leaving NCIS for at least another season.
However, his future on the show after that remains uncertain.
Harmon has appeared on the show in around 360 episodes in the 15 years the show has been on television.
He is one of only a handful of actors who have been on the show since its first season.
HOW TO WATCH NCIS ONLINE
Only Gibbs and Timothy McGee (Sean Murray) from the lead cast have been on the show since its beginning in 2003.
Although Gibbs is now confirmed not to be leaving, the rumours that he would began to circulate after TV Line wrote about the future of NCIS on their ongoing column.
When asked whether any more NCIS cast members would be leaving, they wrote: “It may depend on what comes of this development.
“Sources tell me that midway through the season, the Secretary of Defence will be out for blood upon learning that Gibbs’ team defied his wishes, breaking the law in the process.
WHY DID PAULEY PERRETTE LEAVE NCIS?
“As a result, the D.C. team may land under the microscope, much as their Los Angeles-and New Orleans-based brethren have.”
This seems like the perfect opportunity for Gibbs to bow out to protect his team – a very Gibbs way to go.
However, there have been rumours of Mark Harmon leaving the show previously that have come to nothing.
In 2017, a rumour circulated that Harmon was reducing his time on NCIS due to ill health.
WHERE IS NCIS FILMED?
Harmon strongly denied this, and when that year’s season aired his role was unchanged.
According to Country Living, Mark Harmon is the fifth highest-paid actor working in television today, with the star getting $19million per season of NCIS.
Although this may dissuade him from leaving, 2018 did also see the highest-paid actor on TV Jim Parsons turn down another season of The Big Bang Theory, so who knows.
Express.co.uk contacted CBS for comment on November 7, but they did not respond.
