Is Mark Harmon ‘Teasing a Return’ To NCIS?

By Movieguide® Contributor

Mark Harmon can’t make up his mind about returning to NCIS.

“Mark’s been teasing a return to the show, and everyone wanted him back,” an inside source shared with Yahoo

However, before any plans could be solidified, the actor shifted his focus to his new book, “Ghosts of Honolulu: A Japanese Spy, A Japanese American Spy Hunter, and the Untold Story of Pearl Harbor.” The book is inspired by a true story from the Office of Naval Intelligence. 

“Even through all of the fascinating storylines of NCIS over the last 20 years, Mark Harmon always knew that the most amazing stories in naval intelligence were the true accounts in decades past,” Matt Baugher, publisher of Harper Select, said in a statement about the book.

“He had long desired to tell those stories, and we are honored to help take this first book to the world. Together with his longtime collaborator, Leon Carroll, they have brought the past alive in a true story that reads like a novel but shows the great debt we owe to so many who paved the way for our freedom,” Baugher added.

The insider said Harmon is “still on the fence when it comes to going back to the grind,” adding, “People wish he would stop getting them excited only to let them down.”

Harmon might not be starring in NCIS anymore, but he’s still a big part of the show. 

“Mark is still very involved, and he still is an [executive producer],” NCIS actress Diona Reasonover shared. “He still comes up to set. He actually came up to tell me how much he loves the script, such a sweetie.”

Harmon has kept busy after leaving NCIS, but what about his character, Agent Leroy Gibbs? Movieguide® previously reported:

NCIS fans were sad to see Mark Harmon, who played the lead character Agent Leroy Gibbs, leave the crime show. However, Harmon recently posted an update on what his character has been up to since he left the team. 

“Plot-wise, this character has taken the path that it did,” he explained. “I thought it was honest and okay with [me].”

As far as what Gibbs has been doing in his retirement, Harmon has an answer. 

“The character is living in Alaska, as far as I know,” the actor revealed. That was how the show ended things for Gibbs, having him tell a member of his team that he wouldn’t be returning to work — instead, he would be fishing in Alaska.
