If you’ve been missing Mark Harmon as Gibbs and Michael Weatherly as Tony DiNozzo on NCIS, you might be in for a treat. Sean Murray (who plays Tim McGee) believes Gibbs and DiNozzo will return. Here’s what we know so far.
‘NCIS’ stars Mark Harmon and Michael Weatherly could return.
Harmon, according to Parade, could make an appearance before the end of NCIS Season 19. According to the publication, Executive Producer Steven D. Binder stated that there is always the possibility of hearing from Gibbs at some point. In some way, he will always be a part of the show.
“Never count Leroy Jethro Gibbs out,” Binder says at PaleyFest, according to Parade. “I don’t know what the future holds, but I wouldn’t rule anyone out, d3ad or alive, on the show.”
Sean Murray divulges Mark Harmon could return.
Harmon, who is one of NCIS’ executive producers, is still on the show. He hasn’t completely vanished, so there’s a chance Gibbs will return in some capacity. Murray confirms Harmon’s presence and teases a return. We’re not sure how much of Gibbs we’ll see, but it looks promising.
“He does pop in,” Murray explained to Parade. “I saw him about two weeks ago.” So he’s present. He hasn’t packed his belongings and left town. I’m not saying this as a tease or anything; I really, truly believe the Gibbs could appear somewhere. That is something I firmly believe is possible.” (Here’s how NCIS bid farewell to Mark Harmon.)
Michael Weatherly could reprise his role as Tony DiNozzo.
Murray had more good news to share. He claims he speaks frequently with Weatherly and that they have discussed his possible appearance as Tony DiNozzo on NCIS. Now that Bull is coming to an end, it wouldn’t be surprising to hear from DiNozzo at some point. “I talk to Michael all the time, so we joke about that possibility sometimes,” Murray says in an interview with Parade.
Sean Murray as Alden Cooper on Gary Cole
Murray tells Parade that he is pleased with Gary Cole’s performance as Alden Cooper. When he found out he would be joining the series, he was ecstatic to work with him. Although some fans believed Cole was taking over for Harmon, Murray claims that is not the case. Cole, he claims, simply picked up where Harmon left off.
“I think Gary is kicking some a**,” Murray says. “I adore it. I remember being very excited when Binder told me a year and a half ago that Gary would be joining the team.”
Murray claims to have appeared with Cole in the television film For My Daughter’s Honor. “He was a high school teacher who was having an affair with one of the students, and I had a minor role in the film,” Murray explains.
Overall, Murray is pleased with how things are going with NCIS right now. He’s overjoyed that the series has been renewed for a 20th season.
“No one, including Mark, wanted it to be the end,” Murray tells Parade. “Mark does not desire that for everyone.” We were in uncharted territory, and we had no idea what would happen. We were also on a new night, at a new time, who knows. So we just kept our heads down, tried to do good work, and hoped it showed. “I believe it’s showing.”
