CBS has confirmed they’re sticking with NCIS for at least two more seasons (seasons 14 and 15). The dramatic series has been renewed for two more seasons and Mark Harmon has signed on for two more years as executive producer and star. NCIS is in its 13th season and has been averaging 20.4 million viewers, which is an increase over season 12, and CBS reports the series should once again finish out the season as the #1 drama on network television.
“It’s extraordinary that in its 13th season and with over 300 episodes to its credit, NCIS continues to excel at such a high level on a global scale,” stated Glenn Geller, President, CBS Entertainment. “It is testimony to an amazing cast, led on and off the screen by the exceptional Mark Harmon, for skillfully bringing this universally appealing team of heroes to life; and to Gary Glasberg and his writers for crafting compelling stories that feature NCIS‘s signature blend of mystery, quirk, drama and comedy every single week.”
NCIS stars Mark Harmon, Michael Weatherly, Sean Murray, Pauley Perrette, Rocky Carroll, Brian Dietzen, Emily Wickersham and David McCallum.
The Plot: Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs, a former Marine gunnery sergeant whose skills as an investigator are unmatched, leads this troupe of colorful personalities. Gibbs, a man of few words, only needs a look to explain it all. The team includes NCIS Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo, an ex-homicide detective whose instincts in the field are unparalleled and whose quick wit and humorous take on life make him a team favorite; NCIS Special Agent Timothy McGee, an MIT graduate with a brilliance for computers; and the newest member of the team, Probationary Agent Eleanor “Ellie” Bishop, a mysterious mixture of analytic brilliance, fierce determination and idealism who specializes in international threat assessment and global preparation.
Assisting the team is the youthful and energetic forensic specialist Abby Sciuto, a talented scientist whose sharp mind matches her unconventional style and eclectic tastes, medical examiner Dr. Donald “Ducky” Mallard, who knows it all because he’s seen it all – and he’s not afraid to let you know it – and Ducky’s protégé, Assistant Medical Examiner Jimmy Palmer. Overseeing the operations is NCIS Director Leon Vance, an intelligent, highly trained agent who can always be counted on to shake up the status quo. From murder and espionage to terrorism and stolen submarines, these special agents investigate all crimes with Navy or Marine Corps ties.
