NCIS - Season 4


The fourth season of the police procedural drama NCIS was originally broadcast between September 19, 2006, and May 22, 2007. Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs left NCIS at the end of season three after a terrorist attack had been successful because his superiors did not heed his warnings in time. The team is now led by Anthony DiNozzo for a short time until Gibbs' eventual return. New characters introduced in this season are Michelle Lee, who was briefly on DiNozzo's team and was transferred to the legal department upon Gibbs' return, and (already in the final episodes of season 3) Gibbs' former boss and mentor Mike Franks, both as recurring characters. Also, albeit later in the season, Army CID Lieutenant Colonel Hollis Mann is introduced as another love interest for Gibbs.




NCIS - Season 4



No changes to the cast were made during this season although it should be noted that sometime during filming of NCIS Season 4, reports of a feud between NCIS creator/showrunner Donald P. Bellisario and Mark Harmon (Leroy Jethro Gibbs) began to emerge, the feud occurring due to Harmon having a disagreement with Bellisario's "chaotic management style" which had Harmon threatening to leave the NCIS show for good. Eventually, Bellisario stepped down while co-executive producer Chas Floyd Johnson and head writer Shane Brennan replaced Bellisario.


NCIS season 4 ran from fall 2006 to spring 2007 and starred Harmon, Michael Weatherly, Cote de Pablo, and Sean Murray as Gibbs, Tony DiNozzo, Mossad liaison Ziva David, and Tim McGee, respectively. While season 4, like the rest of NCIS, was full of tense moments, they were all fairly tame and followed standard network procedural beats.


It's hard to imagine anyone other than Gibbs heading up the team on NCIS, but there are a couple of episodes where he stepped away from his leadership role. The only episodes where Gibbs isn't in charge can be found at the start of season 4: "Shalom" and "Escaped." After the traumatic events of the terrorist attack in the season 3 finale, the senior field agent decides to retire and leave his career behind, which leads to DiNozzo taking on the role of team leader in his absence.


Despite the cliffhanger ending involving Gibbs' early retirement in season 3, there was never any real danger of actor Mark Harmon leaving the show. But that doesn't mean there wasn't any drama brewing behind-the-scenes during this period. In 2007, Harmon clashed with series creator Don Bellisario over the writer and producer's alleged "chaotic management style," according to a TV Guide report. Their dispute ultimately led to Bellisario being ousted from the show, while Harmon was promoted to executive producer.


Season Four of NCIS: Los Angeles premiered in the United States on September 25, 2012, in the 9:00-10:00 PM Eastern Standard Time slot on Tuesday evenings immediately following NCIS. The season concluded on May 14, 2013.


"NCIS" fans have not been quiet about their disappointment that the show's star, Mark Harmon, has left the drama. Harmon spent 18 seasons as the show's main character, Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs, but decided to say farewell during Season 19. "As an executive producer and dear friend, Mark continues to be an integral part of the fabric of the show. Our north star has always been staying true to our characters, and that truth has always guided the stories we tell and where those characters go," showrunner Steve Binder said (per Daily Mail). "So regarding the future of Gibbs, as long-time fans of the show may have noticed over the years ... never count Leroy Jethro Gibbs out."


But while Binder left the door open for Harmon to return to "NCIS" in a guest spot, longtime viewers were understandably dismayed. In fact, some have even said they think the show should just end after this current season! "I don't think the current cast could carry the show with Gibbs being in a small number of episodes," wrote one viewer (via Daily Express). "I don't ever want it to end, but it needs to. It needs to wrap it up before it's just a big joke," posted another fan, while someone else added, "I agree. Unless they have a stellar, amazing Season 19, it's time to cut it before it becomes a complete loss."


Mark Harmon came close to leaving "NCIS" during the show's fourth season because he reportedly didn't get along with its creator and original showrunner, Donald Bellisario. According to TV Guide, Harmon didn't appreciate Bellisario's "chaotic management style." "Mark's been working every single day, 16 hours a day," a source revealed. "Don tries to micro-manage everything. Script pages get faxed to the set at the last minute, and Mark is tired of dealing with the huge impact that makes on his life."


The year was 2007 and NCIS was in its fourth season. Tensions were running high between show creator and showrunner Donald Bellisario, and its star, Mark Harmon. Mark was exhausted from working 16-hour days while being constantly micromanaged by Donald. According to Mark, he had a chaotic management style that didn't work for the leading man.


This seasons-long mystery is solved in Mark Harmon's final episode as the star of NCIS, which finds Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs finding a little peace after decades of struggle. Are you ready to say goodbye with me?


One of the things that NCIS: New Orleans does better than any other edition of the franchise is coming up with great villains. We had that with Barlow and then Gossett in the finale, much like we had with Mayor Hamilton throughout the end of season 3. This was a great culmination to most of the season and an episode full of great drama.


Back in season four of the CBS drama, the mysterious cases were landing on Gibbs' (played by Mark Harmon) desk thick and fast. However, one of the biggest dramas came in episode eight, titled 'Once A Hero', in which a decorated Marine veteran fell to their death in rather suspect circumstances. However, one feature in the episode has left some NCIS fans scratching their heads.


Season 19 said goodbye to Maria Bello, Emily Wickersham, and Mark Harmon, while Gary Cole and Katrina Law, both introduced in that season, will reprise their roles as Alden Parker and Jessica Knight. Teri Polo also becomes a series regular as Vivian Kolchak.


May 11 is the beginning of the end with the wrapping up of Ghosts' second season, and then the dates roll out as shown below, with the season officially finishing on May 24 with a 3-hour Survivor finale. 041b061a72
