‘NCIS’: Is a New Episode Airing Tonight?

by Anna Dunn

NCIS typically airs every Monday night, so is there a new episode coming on tonight? Fans are anticipating the 8th episode of season 19 of the hit show.

Unfortunately, there won’t be a new episode tonight. Both NCIS and the spinoff that usually airs right after it, NCIS: Hawai’i, are on a break. The upcoming 8th episode of the season, titled Peacekeeper, doesn’t just bring in a new case but gives fans more of an opportunity to learn about Kasie Hines.

Fans will have to wait until November 29th to catch the show, as well as NCIS: Hawai’i back on the air. In the meantime, fans are celebrating one of the main actor’s birthdays.

‘NCIS’ Fans Recently Wished McGee Actor Sean Murray a Happy Birthday

There may not be a new episode this week, but NCIS fans still got to celebrate a special occasion and wish Sean Murray, who plays McGee, a happy birthday. Murray has been on the show as McGee since its early days and is one of the only cast members left that was on the show back then.

In celebration of Sean Murray’s birthday, fans took to Twitter to talk about their favorite McGee Moments.

“Sean is the reason I started watching #NCIS. There are so many scenes I love, but I especially like when McGee faints upon hearing that Delilah is pregnant. Or McGee & Gibbs fishing scene from earlier this season, or when McGee ‘fired’ Gibbs,” one fan wrote.

There are certainly plenty of McGee moments to choose from. Fans were a bit disappointed when, following the exit of Gibbs, McGee didn’t take the Mantle as the new boss. But he saw the life that Agent Gibbs lead and didn’t want to go down that road.

For many fans, he’s a fascinating character whose shown incredible growth over the years, and people can’t wait to see what he does next.

This Is Who Took Over Instead of McGee:

Instead of McGee, Agent Alden Parker, played by Gary Cole, has taken over as the boss. Cole joined the series for season 19, and while fans typically struggle to accept new actors, Gary Cole has won over a ton of NCIS fans who were skeptical about the show continuing without Agent Gibbs.

Katrina Law has also joined the series. The actress made a brief appearance as Jesica Knight in season 18 and has joined the show as a regular following the departure of Agent Bishop Actress Emily Wickersham.

While it’s a bummer that the show is on Hiatus, there are 18 full seasons available for fans to re-watch in the meantime. You can also check out NCIS: Hawai’i. All episodes of the show are available on Hulu if you haven’t caught up. The show stars Vanessa Lachey and premiered earlier this year.
