Sean Murray Returning to NCIS; Cast Fully Intact

by at . Comments

After a protracted negotiation period in which the status of several key actors was unclear, the final holdout has re-signed, keeping the NCIS cast wholly intact for years to come.

According to TV Guide, Sean Murray has signed a new contract for the upcoming eighth season of the hit CBS procedural, which ranked as TV's top scripted drama in 2009-2010.

Many of the actors all hit free agency recently and Murray, who plays Special Agent Timothy McGee, was the last remaining series regular without a new contract for Season 8.

McGee and all his cohorts will be back this fall.

David McCallum, Rocky Carroll, Pauley Perrette and Michael Weatherly all agreed to terms this spring, while Mark Harmon and Cote de Pablo already had long-term deals in place.

As big fans of the show, we're happy that the cast and its terrific chemistry will not be altered. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts, all of which are pretty awesome.

It was welcoming news to hear that the NCIS crew will be back. There is vertually nothing to watch if not for NCIS; and, similar shows. It seems most of the shows are either making fun of certain gender, nationality, or humiliating each other. Coupled with the fact that most of the series are about minorities, e.g. the Lopez show: what Spanish family acts like that family? They certainly do not act like the Spanish families I know and have met in New Mexico, totally disfunctional family. What is worst is that people actually this is a comedy. Then there are the Black families who fall into similar shows. I wonder, are the big time owners and managers of Hollywood now using maniorities to make their money; and, who are the big time owners if now _ _ _ _. They sure know how to make a buck, all the way to the bank they laugh; and, all the minorities think they are great because there are minorities on the screene. How insulting to the Blacks and Spanish people.

NCIS is the best program on the TV (as far as I am concerned). The laughter, seriousness and story always keep me in awe. The relationship between Code de Pablo & Michael Weatherly is fabulous.
The energy and flow among all the cast is super. Pauley Perrett, David McCallum, are great! All together the cast is "Top Shelf".
When I come home from work I watch the re-runs and then on Tuesday night I watch the current one. The cast is the best, but whoever writes these stories should get an award (brillant mind).
Thank you so much for "thee" best show ever!!!

Is the contract just for season 8? Or is it multi-year?

NCIS Quotes

[voiceover] Anyone can achieve their fullest potential, who we are might be predetermined, but the path we follow is always of our own choosing. We should never allow our fears or the expectations of others to set the frontiers of our destiny. Your destiny can't be changed but, it can be challenged. Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one.
