Mark Harmon has left his role on NCIS – but that doesn’t mean viewers won’t see his character again. In the fourth episode of season 19, Leroy Jethro Gibbs decided to stay in Alaska and not to return to his NCIS job. But, “as an executive producer and dear friend, Mark continues to be an integral part of the fabric of the show,” said executive producer and showrunner Steven D. Binder. “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.”
