Crime procedural drama NCIS has become one of the longest-running television series to date with more than 400 episodes already produced. Alongside this, the show has also spawned two successful spin-off shows, which are currently airing. However, many fans will be concerned about whether the end is in sight for the series – here’s what’s been revealed about this.
How many seasons of NCIS will there be?
NCIS fans are enjoying the 18th season of the popular crime series as it airs on Tuesdays on CBS.
This still follows the criminal investigating team led by Agent Leroy Gibbs (played by Mark Harmon).
However, over 18 seasons, there have been lots of changes for the team as original cast members have come and gone.
Now many are worried about how much longer the show may continue to air on CBS.

“It’s gone through many iterations over the years it seems, and there have been times where people thought it wouldn’t be able to pull through [the departures of key characters] and it has, many times. So it’s interesting, you never know what’s going to happen.
“As long as they let us keep making this and we keep telling good stories, and it’s interesting and fun to do, I hope we get to do it for as long as it’s good.”
One major thing which could impact its future is if its leading actor leaves the role behind.
Mark Harmon has starred in the series since the pilot episode of the show.
Therefore, if he left the series, many fans may be concerned about how its future would look.
Thankfully, the star has revealed he doesn’t have any plans to exit yet.
He last addressed rumours in a 2019 interview with PEOPLE where he said: “I’ve always thought if there’s ever a time where the writers are walking into the room and going, ‘I don’t know what to do,’ then I think we all have to look at each other and call it a day.
