Mark Harmon exits ‘NCIS’ – CNN
After more than 18 seasons Mark Harmon has actually left the program. Monday’s episode, entitled “Great Wide Open,” worked as his exit.
In it, Harmon as Gibbs remains in Alaska with Unique Representative Timothy McGee (played by Sean Murray) when Gibbs informs him “I’m not going back, Tim. I’m not going back home.”
“Our north star has always been staying true to our characters, and that truth has always guided the stories we tell and where those characters go,” Binder stated. “So regarding the future of Gibbs, as long-time fans of the show may have noticed over the years…never count Leroy Jethro Gibbs out.”
