Mark Harmon’s return to NCIS is again a hot topic.

Many NCIS fans have grown tired of the rumors, but those same fans would love to see Gibbs leading his team again.

The NCIS cast featured Mark as Leroy Jethro Gibbs in NCIS for nearly 19 years.

When he decided to leave the show, the writers had Gibbs move to Alaska to enjoy retirement.

Since his departure, rumors have surfaced about the show possibly bringing Gibbs back.

But as previously reported by Monsters and Critics, a Gibbs return depends entirely on what Mark wants to do.

Mark also has a new book debuting soon called Ghosts of Honolulu: A Japanese Spy, A Japanese American Spy Hunter, and The Untold Story of Pearl Harbor.

New rumors about Mark Harmon and a possible NCIS return

This past winter, NCIS executive producer Steven D. Binder spoke about Mark returning to NCIS, spurring a new slew of rumors.

Nothing came of those rumors, but it did underscore the fact that the show would want Mark back on set.

Now a new report from Radar Online suggests Mark is not close to returning. In an odd shift, Radar Online states that Mark is backtracking from rejoining the show.

The site also states that Mark is ticking off former castmates with his fickle attitude about the show. None of that information comes from a confirmed source, though.

So even while Mark is saying nothing publicly about the show, he is still popping up in online rumors.

You know whether Gibbs comes back or not I would not like to see Gary Cole lose his position on the show. I like the way he interacts with the team and they all get along well. If Gibbs does come back he should not be the group leader anymore. I think that ship has sailed. Gary Cole is great as the NCIS leader.
