Fans of the TV show NCIS must cope with the definitive end of an era. Season 20 premiered in the US on September 19. It's the first season without "Gibbs". About a year after Mark Harmon's exit, he's now also absent from the new opening credits for season 20.

NCIS: Opening credits without Mark Harmon

Instead, Sean Murray (44), who plays "Timothy McGee", appears in the intro. Although Harmon only appeared in the first four episodes last season, he remained part of the opening credits. Kelly Kahl (55), president of CBS Entertainment, referred to season 19 as "a transition year" for the TV series.

Harmon reportedly wanted to leave the show after Season 18 but learned CBS might not renew the show after that. So he came back again for a few episodes in Season 19 Is this the final farewell to his character?
