“NCIS” fans are in an uproar over Mark Harmon’s exit and the replacement for Leroy Jethro Gibbs. They’re questioning how the show can go on without its iconic leader. One fan accused CBS of lying to viewers, sparking a response from the showrunner.

On ‘NCIS,’ CBS Insisted That Gary Cole’s Agent Parker Would Not Replace Mark Harmon’s Gibbs.

In early 2021, speculation swirled over Mark Harmon’s exit from ‘NCIS’. Sources suggested that the 70-year-old actor would leave before the end of season 18. However, CBS denied speculations and confirmed Harmon’s return for another season. Gary Cole, an Emmy-nominated actor, joined as a series regular and played FBI Agent Alden Parker. Insiders underlined that Cole’s function will not replace Harmon’s Gibbs.

In Season 19, Episode 5, ‘Face the Strange,’ Agent Parker Took the Place of Agent Gibbs.

Harmon returned for Season 19 but clues hinted at his departure. After just two episodes, it was clear CBS was replacing Gibbs with Parker. Harmon bid farewell as Cole took over, evident from Gibbs’ boat name, Rule 91, and Parker’s claim that coincidences happen all the time.

‘NCIS’ Supporters Accuse CBS of ‘Blatantly Lying To Us.’

NCIS fans accuse CBS of trickery after the new commander raises uproar. Cole faces a difficult challenge as the replacement for the long-time leader. Outraged that Agent Parker replaced McGee as team leader. Fans express dissatisfaction: ‘CBS outright lied!’ Gibbs’ heir apparent is sidelined. ‘Gibbs would never select Parker over McGee.’ Tension increases as devoted viewers express displeasure.

Steven D. Binder, The Show’s Creator, Reacts.

NCIS showrunner Steven D. Binder swiftly addressed a fan’s accusation regarding the show’s recent storyline. “I wouldn’t presume Gibbs chose Parker over McGee,” Binder clarified. “I envision Gibbs and McGee had ample opportunity to discuss the future, and what McGee conveyed to Torres during the stake-out… Gibbs was already aware. :)”

‘NCIS’ Fans Were Desperate for McGee To Take Over for Gibbs.

“NCIS” supporters are outraged by the decision to pass over McGee for Gibbs’ position. Despite Binder’s remarks and McGee’s hesitation in episode 5, people felt he deserved the role. Twitter users express disappointment, describing the text as inconsistent and a smack in the face to McGee. Many believe McGee, not Parker, should lead the club, igniting a debate about who genuinely deserves the coveted job.

  1. Gary COAL good actor but, MARK Harmon is the key and love of NCIS . GIBBS is the special character that is the personal tye to the Marines and Navy. And that’s very important that keeps the show from being just another cop show. Plus the struggle in Gibbs life and how his team grows with him. You can’t replace the perfect anchor of the show.It WON’T WORK. NCIS NEEDS MARK BACK

    • Yes! We definitely need Mark Harmon come back! He’s a greater actor.. I think Gary Coal need to go.. Because Mark Harmon have been on NCIS for long time. Very special character as Gibbs 👍

    • Mark ist der Leiter dieses TEAMS. Seht euch die ersten Folgen mit Gibbs an und dann die ersten Folgen mit Parker….wer den unterschied nicht sehen kann ignoriert den Charakter dieser Show:

  2. I agree with everyone else. McGee should of gotten Gibbs position. So that when it came time to bring Tony back there was a spot for him on the team. Parker has no business being a part of the team.

  3. They definitely should have given the spot to McGee. He deserves it so much more then an outsider. It will never be the same. It’s hard not seeing out team together.

  4. I love Gibbs and his time on earth is short now so my feelings are go Mark Harmon it’s your time with family. I wish you the best I miss you tho. As for Cole he is doing a great job not Gibbs but he will do. I don’t think McGee wanted the job and turned it down. He is team leader now thats what he chose. I do want to see Gibbs Zeva and Tony make a comeback tho. I miss Zeva and the flair she brought to the team.

  5. Parker brings a softer persona as the boss and interjects a sense of humor when needed. I think the team works well together and Parker is more of a hands on leader than Gibbs. I don’t miss Gibbs. It was apparent at the end of his run that he wasn’t fully committed to the show as he once was.

    • I totally quit watching the show all together! I think it sucks now! First they ditch Bishop who I grew to like after they got rid of Ziva. Then they get rid of Gibbs, and replace them with some ass bag that can’t act his way out of a parking ticket. And adding him instead of putting McGee in charge was a dumb move, but at least that would have made it a bit more tolerable. I’ll stick with the reruns the new show sucks.

  6. Gibbs was well past mandatory retirement age for federal agents. McGee should have had his own team a long time ago if it were real life.

  7. Gary cole plays a decent villain but not a good ncis character. I can understand Mark Harmon wanting to retire but they screwed up by putting Cole into the team

  8. Have seen Gary Cole in other shows. Good actor but he is no Gibbs! Used to watch NCIS regularly. Have not watched it since Gibbs left. Will NEVER watch it without Mark Harmon as Gibbs!

  9. I have seen Gary Cole in other shows he does fairly good. But Gibbs is by far better. The show has become less interesting. Just as soon not watch it.

  10. I understand all the furor over this but something needed to happen. If not now, when? I love Gibbs too but the guy is now 70 years old. These NCIS folks, realistic or not, hunt down, run down, fight and pursue super villains and terrorists all the time, sometimes globally. They have even said, in an episode featuring DiNizzo senior that NCIS has an age limit for agents, like 65. So, adios Gibbs seems realistic. He could come back as some kind of agent emeritus, ala Ducky, but that storyline would age quicker than Harmon himself. The best thing is to keep cranking out shows as long as the ratings allow and have NCIS fade into the sunset like other long running shows, ER comes to mind, have done. Viewers have had the pleasure of watching one of the greatest series of all time but, nothing lasts forever.
