There are speculations that Mark Harmon health may be the reason why CBS is pulling the rug under NCIS Season 14. Although Season 15 for the hit TV series has already been confirmed by the network, there are still fears that this may be the last season for the show.
In the last episodes of NCIS, fans took to social media to share their thoughts about how Harmon, who plays Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs, has been looking rather thin. They are fearing for his health and believe the actor needs to take a rest. Since then, rumors that Harmon is leaving NCIS have spread.
The problem is, however, is that the show could not survive without Harmon’s character. Thus, it is important for fans to have a clear understanding of what is wrong with Mark Harmon health. His character, Gibbs, has always been a huge fan favorite and plays a major role in the show.
NCIS Doing Good in Ratings!
Fans, on the other hand, have been threatening to stop watching the show if Gibbs will be pulled out from it. We can’t really blame them since they were also surprised by Michael Weatherly’s (Anthony DiNozzo) decision to leave NCIS at the end of Season 13. After that, it has become noticeable that the show was struggling.
NCIS’ Season 14 is still doing good in the ratings game. However, there are fears that the ratings will not be able to survive the Mark Harmon health condition. To save the show, there have been rumors that Weatherly, who was part of NCIS from the beginning, will return.
Alex Quinn is a replacement?
Even the introduction of Alex Quinn (Jennifer Esposito) has been met with some conspiracy theories. Apparently, fans believe that the show’s production team is trying to replace the lost of Weatherly and the possible exit of Harmon with another “lovable” character.
It is possible that because of the Mark Harmon health issue, the actor will leave the show and Quinn will take over the leadership of NCIS for Season 15. Currently, the actress hasn’t received a warm reception, but that’s quite normal for a show that has been around for 14 years. We are sure that given the opportunity, Quinn will do well for NCIS.
