NCIS fans fear for Gibbs’ future after ‘concerning’ clue

The hugely popular and action-packed series has been officially renewed for an impressive 20th season. Unfortunately, the task force has been without its iconic Special Agent in Charge, Leroy Jethro Gibbs (played by Mark Harmon) since the fourth episode of the current instalment. Although the door is still open for his return, a recent update on series regular Sean Murray’s may have closed off the opportunity for good.



Timothy McGee star Sean’s latest Instagram post seems to confirm Leroy Gibbs is officially no longer a part of the long-running crime drama.

Shortly after CBS announced season 20 was in the works, Sean took to Instagram with a collage of some NCIS favourites.

He captioned his new post: “Here we go again, baby… =) #ncis #season20.”

A number of photos of the show’s current cast form a “20” to commemorate the milestone season, which is set to premiere later this year.










Also featured are the team’s newer members, Nicolas Torres (Wilmer Valderrama), Kasie Hines (Diona Reasonover), Jessica Knight (Katrina Law) and Alden Parker (Gary Cole).

This seems to confirm the show’s current cast will all be returning for season 20, but not Gibbs.

@brandy.ramsey pleaded: “Gibbs needs to come back for a few episodes.”

While IG user @thomasoutdoors88 also demanded: “Bring Gibbs or Tony back.”




There have also been calls for Michael Weatherly to reprise his role as agent Tony DiNozzo as the star’s new series, Bull, is coming to an end with its sixth season.

However, fans are mostly concerned about Gibbs’ potential return following his unexpected departure at the end of last year.

Having remained a key member of the main cast for over 18 seasons, Gibbs’ role in the series was reduced when he was suspended by Director Vance.

He then apparently left the series for good in the fourth episode of season 19, Great Wide Open, in which he decided to relocate to Alaska.
