What’s the deal with Mark Harmon..?! We require answers!
Whether or not NCIS fans are still hoping for a surprise return of Gibbs (Mark Harmon), the CBS drama is still going strong, and Sean Murray, who plays McGee, is all in.
The network announced on March 31 that the entire NCIS franchise has been renewed for new seasons, including the flagship show, which will most likely return in the fall with season 20. (NCIS: Los Angeles and NCIS: Hawai’i will both return for seasons 14 and 2, respectively.) Shortly after it was revealed that NCIS will continue to air new episodes in September, actor Sean Murray shared the exciting news with fans on Instagram.
“Here we go, baby… =)” “#ncis #season20,” he captioned a photo collage in the shape of the number 20. “NCIS has been renewed for season…. 20,” read the message in the image.
A closer look reveals the Washington Monument in the background, an ode to the show’s setting. In addition, the double-digit number was made up of more than two dozen NCIS cast photos, including Sean, Wilmer Valderrama, Rocky Carroll, Brian Dietzen, Diona Reasonover, Katrina Law, Gary Cole, and David McCallum.
Following Sean’s celebration of the show’s incredible milestone, NCIS fans immediately joined in the fun in the comments section. “Congratulations Awesome great job,” one person said. “I’m overjoyed!! Congratulations, and congratulations to the rest of the cast! “, another person added. “Best news I’ve had today,” another fan said.
While most fans were overjoyed to learn that the procedural series would return for the 19th year in a row, some were left disappointed by actor Mark Harmon’s continued absence. Fans pointed out that he wasn’t included in the roundup of cast/character photos. “MARKS PHOTO NOT IN 20??????,” one follower commented. “How come there’s no Mark Harmon?” someone else asked.
Others, however, praised Sean and his fellow NCIS co-stars for their ability to adapt to the show’s significant changes over the last few seasons. Mark left the CBS drama at the start of season 19 in October 2021, as viewers are aware. “Congratulations on perseverance. Don’t pay attention to the naysayers in the room. The NCIS mothership is still in place. “Awesome additions with @katrinalaw and #garycole,” a fan said. “This makes me ecstatic!” “I like the character development and how it shows that, yes, people retire or change careers,” said another.
According to Deadline, Mark is not planning a homecoming in NCIS season 20. Though he was not included in the collage, he is still an executive producer on the show. So it’s not completely out of the question to believe he’ll appear at the most unexpected time.
