A new episode of NCIS airs on Monday night and it is going to be the first real installment of the show that doesn’t feature Mark Harmon as Leroy Jethro Gibbs.
On the last episode, we saw Gibbs and McGee travel to Alaska to finish one last case together. But Gibbs stayed in Alaska once the job was done, letting his long-time friend and co-worker know that he had finally found peace for the first time in a long time.
Former NCIS cast member Jamie Lee Curtis left Mark Harmon a really nice note on social media, where she shared a lot of the same words that many NCIS fans have said along the way.
Now, NCIS Season 19 is heading into new territory with Episode 5 for Fall 2021, so it is definitely going to be interesting to see how the writers handle everything. And it looks like that will include more of Gary Cole playing Alden Parker.

NCIS TV promo for Face the Strange
Below is the TV promo that NBC is currently running for the episode called Face the Strange. We see former FBI Agent Alden Parker as he presumably says goodbye to the NCIS team after working with them. But something keeps him from fully leaving.
As a reminder, for helping out Gibbs on the episode called Great Wide Open, Parker was fired by the FBI, so he no longer has a job. For now.
