The departure of Mark Harmon as Leroy Jethro Gibbs after 18 seasons on NCIS continues to spark debate among fans. Despite initial denials from CBS, Gary Cole’s Agent Parker assumed the role in Season 19, leading to accusations of deception.

Some fans are displeased with the choice of Agent Parker as the new team leader, expressing disappointment that Tim McGee, Gibbs’ apparent heir, did not take on the role. Showrunner Steven D. Binder responded, suggesting that Gibbs and McGee may have discussed the future. However, fans remain unsatisfied, voicing their preference for McGee to step into Gibbs’ shoes.
