Tonight, on M6, the NCIS will let Agent Bishop go. The Season 18 finale will mark the last appearance of Emily Wickersham, who has decided to leave after 7 seasons of loyal service. She held 172 episodes in total and added her name to the team in 2013, to fill the void left by the abrupt departure of the main female character. A certain Ziva!
Mark Harmon leaves NCIS after only 4 episodes in season 19!
Cote de Pablo (left in 2013)

In fact, the actress had asked to be released from her contract, finding the shoot too taxing and wishing to do so. other things. We thus found Sasha Alexander, shortly after, headlining Rizzoli & Isles, and more recently in Shameless.
Mark Harmon (since 2021)
At 70, it’s been a while since the lead star and producer of NCIS would like to leave the series. Obliged to stay so that CBS renews the show and not to be, in fact, responsible for the unemployment of hundreds of technicians, it will have only held 4 episodes in season 19. How the drama to audiences in free fall for two years in USA, will he survive this final departure? Mark Harmon was indeed the soul of NCIS, in the role of Gibbs for more than 420 episodes and a certain JAG…
