NCIS alumni Emily Wickersham just posted a new photo of her baby bump. The actress, who played Special Agent Ellie Bishop, left the series after the season 18 finale. She announced her pregnancy in the summer.
“Howdy 2,” she wrote in the caption for her recent pic. The photo shows off the shadow of her silhouette.
“Great photo!!! You’re gonna be an awesome Mom!! Congratulations [party emojis] BUT!! You’ll definitely be missed on NCIS!” one fan wrote.
It’s true. Fans really do miss Agent Bishop. Like many characters who have joined the show late, some fans had a hard time adjusting to Bishop’s presence on the show. But now that she’s gone, you can frequently find comments on NCIS‘s social media posts asking the show to bring Bishop back.
However, it looks like Wickersham is going to be plenty busy in the upcoming years.
Wickersham Left ‘NCIS’ With a Sweet Message to the Cast and Crew
“Hangin this hat and jacket up. What a great ride it’s been. This cast, this crew, are top-notch. I can’t say enough kind words about this group that I’ve had the pleasure of working with for close to 8 years now and 172 episodes later,” she wrote in her announcement post. Wickersham thanked the NCIS cast and crew and noted how lucky she was to have a stable job as an actress but never explicitly mentioned why she was leaving.
“This business is finicky and weird and consistency is a rarity. I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of a show where I got to show up and act and laugh and learn with wonderful people. A moment in time I surely won’t forget,” she continued. Wickersham is amongst the many cast members on NCIS to leave the show recently. But it definitely doesn’t look like she’s leaving with any bad blood.
“Thank you CBS and NCIS for including me in a part of television history. Time goes fast. Eat it up but chew slowly,” she finished.
This year, they’ve brought in two new actors with Katrina Law coming in as a replacement for Emily Wickersham. While some fans have enjoyed the suspense of the recent season, others are having a hard time adjusting to more fresh faces. Mark Harmon is also only going to be on a select handful of episodes this season and has had a major part in the opening episodes of the season.
This means fans may not see a lot of him for the rest of the year after he’s done with his early-season episodes. Hopefully, fans will adjust to the new characters more as the series continues, because it looks like there’s plenty to look forward to otherwise.
