Fans Want Mark Harmon Back For NCIS Season 20

Although NCIS seems to have a very cohesive cast since Mark Harmon left early in Season 19, fans are still asking Gibbs to return. Social media is inundated with posts asking for his return. He is still a show executive producer. In addition, he is in the show’s credits. Therefore, he may be gone now, but he could return at any time. Even in a cameo appearance.

However, NCIS has had solid numbers despite the loss of the OG star. Moreover, Katrina Law and Gary Cole have added new energy to the series.

When CBS renewed the series for Season 20, CBS Entertainment president, Kelly Kahl reiterated the show’s popularity by pointing out that NCIS is “one of the most popular and enduring series in the world.”

How popular? According to Deadline, not only is the series the number one Nielsen broadcast series, the move to Monday night has increased its rating by 149 percent.

The crossover episode with NCIS: Hawaii was fun and successful. The series has a lot of freshness despite two decades of dominating television.

But the biggest indicator is social media. NCIS has about 95.8 billion potential social media impressions. This show ain’t going anywhere anytime soon.

  1. That’s true, because Mark is the soul of NCIS and an AMAZING actor. Therefore, Gibbs should occasionally return in S20. He has a vision, is a true coach and teacher, and has special connections in the Navy, so let him with work with Dr. Confalone or Vance or etc.etc. be creative
