Finally, Mark Harmon (70) has broken his silence about his NCIS exit. According to ETOnline, he talks about leaving the series in an interview that can be seen on the Season 19 DVD. He reveals what happened to his role "Gibbs" and what the agent is doing now.

What happened to Mark Harmon's role "Gibbs"?
But what happened to Mark Harmon's role "Gibbs"? Is the NCIS agent okay and where is he? Mark Harmon has reassuring news for the series fans.
"I’m not retired… the character is living in Alaska as far as I know." That's how the series ended for "Gibbs"... He was fishing in Alaska when he told "McGee" he wasn't returning to work — indefinitely. Thus, "Gibbs" also joined the group of saddest NCIS exits.
So there was no serial death. There is therefore a possibility that "Gibbs" will come back at some point. If showrunner Steven D. Binder has his way, that's not unthinkable, as he announced in a statement to ET.
"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," said Binder.
"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," Binder continues.
