‘NCIS’ Fans Are Getting Very, Very Upset About Gibbs After the Show’s Instagram

Another episode of NCIS, another week of fans demanding the return of Gibbs.

Ahead of the newest episode of season 19, titled “Docked,” NCIS posted an Instagram photo showing a team chat in the office between McGee (Sean Murray), Knight (Katrina Law), Torres (Wilmer Valderrama) and Parker (Gary Cole). The caption of the post aptly read “the gang’s all here” and encouraged viewers to tune in on Monday night.

While the Instagram post was meant to get fans excited about the upcoming episode, it seemingly had quite the opposite effect instead. Immediately, the comments section of the post filled up with NCIS fans lamenting about how much they miss Gibbs (Mark Harmon) since he last appeared on the show in early October.

“No the gang is not all here. You are missing the leader that is Leroy Jethro Gibbs. Stop retconning Gibbs’ existence! BRING GIBBS BACK!,” one fan wrote. “Bring Gibbs back bro,” another demanded. “Let me know when Gibbs comes back!!! 😢,” a different fan remarked.

From what it sounds like, NCIS fans are going to have to learn how to love the show without Gibbs at the helm. According to reports, Mark will no longer be the leader of the CBS procedural after starring on the show for 18 years. That said, NCIS showrunner Steve Binder did make it seem like Gibbs would appear in future episodes.

“As an executive producer and dear friend, Mark continues to be an integral part of the fabric of the show,” he said in a statement. “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. 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.”

Of course, some fans have pledged to stop watching NCIS all together now because of Mark’s departure. But on the bright side, it appears more and more folks are getting used to the idea of Parker taking over for Gibbs with each passing week. It’s just going to take some time.

  1. Won’t be the same, but mark harmon is 70 years old and tv has some grueling schedules. He’s a producer for some of the ncis series plus acting. Maybe he’s looking to slow down some and enjoy his laurels. Add to that , the fact that cole is a good actor and , if his character is developed right, can be an interesting replacement.18 years for a series is a long time and we’ve lost some really good characters , characters we really liked. Nothing lasts forever.

  2. We have started to look for a replacement.There is no show without Gibbs. Send us a notice when Gibbs is back.

  3. We all know everything changes, and for me adios NCIS it will not be the same without the “Gunny”!!!! I’m an old soon to be a 78 Gunny of Marines and still rise & shine – I’m sure Gunny Harmon will do the same (and get paid for it) if he is proded !!! 😉
