It seems clear that Gibbs and his team aren’t ready to retire yet. CBS has renewed their venerable crime drama NCIS for a 13th season.
On NCIS, Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and his team of special agents continue to investigate crimes that involve the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. Co-stars this season are Emily Wickersham, Michael Weatherly, Sean Murray, David McCallum, Pauley Perrette, Rocky Carroll, and Brian Dietzen.
The ratings for season 12 have come down, averaging a 2.45 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 17.36 million viewers. That’s a season-to-season decline of 13% in the demo and about 6% in viewers.
Still, it’s one of the most-watched TV shows currently on television and so there’s no way that CBS would let it go to the television graveyard.
