Saying Goodbye to ‘NCIS’

Special Agent Eleanor Bishop has not made an appearance on “NCIS” since the Season 18 finale. While some fans believe that Wickersham’s pregnancy has something to do with her leaving the show, nothing is confirmed. After posting a reflection on Instagram, it sounds like the actress wanted to pursue other projects.

“Hangin this hat and jacket up. What a great ride it’s been,” the caption begins. “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. 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.”
