With Gibbs’ retirement from NCIS, there remains a possibility for his return, given the various avenues and opportunities available. Despite missing Ducky’s burial, there are still ways for him to reappear. Firstly, he could potentially make an appearance in the franchise’s milestone 1000th episode, centered around Director Vance’s story.

This would serve as an ideal opportunity to honor the show’s past, present, and future by reuniting Gibbs with the current cast. Secondly, he is reportedly named as the executor of Ducky’s will, which presents a hurdle as he cannot fulfill this responsibility while being out of state.
