The renewal was made as the series' front man, Mark Harmon signs up for another contract. However, fellow NCIS co-star, Cota de Pablo is said to be still under negotiation with the network.
Here's a brief statement from CBS President and CEO Les Moonves ---
“In a world gone niche, NCIS keeps getting bigger, and Mark Harmon continues to define the role of leading man on the No. 1 show on television. NCIS is the type of franchise every company wants in today’s global content ecosystem — high-quality storytelling that generates passionate viewers and drives revenue on every conceivable platform.”
