NCIS: Who will take Agent Gibbs’ spot on the show?
When the fourth episode of Season 19 confirmed Agent Gibbs’ departure, NCIS fans were distraught. But now that he’s gone, who will take his place? Agent Gibbs (Mark Harmon) made his final appearance on NCIS season 19’s fourth episode, titled Great Wide Open. Gibbs’ departure will be felt for a long time by fans as he left the CBS series in 2003 after the pilot episode. However, now that he is no longer on the show, many are wondering who might take his position as NCIS team leader.
Fans have been anticipating Agent Gibbs’ departure for some time, ever before CBS announced that Mark Harmon would be stepping down from the show.
Harmon would only return in a few of episodes in Season 19, CBS said ahead of the season.
Fans were relieved to see Gibbs still dominating the show during the first three episodes of the season, as he appeared in all three episodes.
Gibbs had to travel up north in the fourth episode, venturing to Alaska in pursuit of another criminal in a long line of foes for the NCIS veteran.
At first, the mission appeared to be routine, with Gibbs suiting up and getting ready for another mission.
When it was time for him to leave, he went to his colleague Timothy McGee (Sean Murrey) and stated unequivocally that he would not be leaving.
Gibbs realized it was time to put his rifle and badge aside and enjoy a long-overdue retirement in the magnificent State’s wilderness.
Long-time viewers were left with a melancholy ending, but it did open the door for him to return as a guest star in the future.
Regardless, it has left a void in the cast, and the NCIS team is in desperate need of a new leader, but these are some large shoes to fill.
The most apparent pick, and one for which fans have been waiting since Alden Parker’s (Gary Cole) declaration.
Parker is a new character for Season 19 who is an FBI Special Agent and a seasoned professional.
He appears to be on the verge of succeeding Gibbs, having already collaborated on a case with him before to Gibbs’ temporary hiatus.
