NCIS: This is the episode where they might bring back actor Mark Harmon


NCIS premiered its 20th season on CBS without Mark Harmon. It’s the first season of the drama to debut without the iconic special agent Leroy Gibbs.

NCIS is the naval criminal investigation drama that premiered on the CBS broadcast network in 2003 and tells the lives of special agents who work in the service attached to the Navy and to follow cases of cr*imes committed by personnel military. The series debuted in 2003 and recently reached its 20th season, but without the character who has been at the forefront of all the stories since the first installment.

While it is confirmed that the actor walked away definitively, there is a specific episode that could bring him back. The hit-and-run series bid farewell to Special Agent Leroy Gibbs at the end of the fourth episode of NCIS Season 19. The character that was played by Mark Harmon from the start, made the decision to walk away from his job of so many years to live a quiet life in Alaska.

Mark Harmon could return with season 21 or 22 of NCIS

Many fans were hoping Leroy Gibbs would make some special appearance before season 19 came to an end. However, that did not happen. His place is currently held by former FBI agent Alden Parker (Gary Cole), who became leader of the squad of agents and fans have seen him dive into each of the stories and face danger.

Despite his screen exit, Mark Harmon continued to appear in the credits of NCIS Season 19. Although the actor did not return to his character, it has to be borne in mind that he remains as one of the executive producers of the procedural drama. Now, with season 20 coming, fans were surprised to not see the name of the iconic actor Leroy Gibbs anywhere.

Mark Harmon is likely to appear in the 500th episode of NCIS

There’s no doubt that the fact that he no longer appears in the NCIS credits has taken away any chance of hope fans might have had about a future return of the show. However, there’s one episode of the CBS drama that might bring him back. Although that won’t happen in Season 20, he might reappear with a cameo.

Mark Harmon might appear in NCIS Season 21 or 22. Remember that this is a series that usually releases 23 episodes with each installment. And given that the 400th episode was the second of the seventeenth, it is likely that with the 500th milestone to hit the screen next year, production decides to bring it back, as according to CBS President Mark Harmon has the door open to the show.
