NCIS Renewed For Season Nine

by at . Comments

Fresh off its record ratings night - 22.8 million people watched this week's episode - NCIS has been officially renewed by CBS. Season nine will commence in September.

TV's #1 drama will likely make it at least a decade, too. Mark Harmon signed a new, two-year contract with the network, keeping Gibbs at the helm through 2012-13.

Most of the cast also signed extensions at the end of last season, which should allow the hit procedural to continue its unprecedented success for years to come.

Cast of NCIS

"It's simply amazing that a show in its eighth season continues to perform at such an elite level," Nina Tassler, president of CBS Entertainment, said in a statement.

"This is a tribute to the hard work of its talented writers, producers and cast for bringing to life these compelling stories and characters with intrigue and humor."

No arguments here. Most shows wane after a few good years, but this one hasn't missed a beat. Congrats to the cast, crew and writers and keep up the good work!

Abby: McGee! There is no rule 70.
McGee: Well, I--
Abby: You just made up a rule. This McGibbs thing has really gone to your head. I don't even recognize you right now.

McGee: All right. Well you should probably know that Abby and I used to date?
Bishop: Ew. Like, each other?
McGee: Yeah.
Bishop: Wait - isn't that a violation of rule 12, never date a....
McGee: It was a long time ago. After we'd broken up, one night I went to her lab. Found a scribbled piece paper; a list. Potential boyfriends had to fulfill certain conditions by a pre-arranged date or else, goodbye.
Bishop: Such as.
McGee: Things started off relatively normal: opening the door for her, flowers, putting the seat down. Then around number 8, it gets uh...
Bishop: What?
McGee: Does she know you have these?
Bishop: Does she know you have these?
McGee: Yeah she wasn't happy when she found out.
Bishop: These are all very specific.
McGee: Yeah.
Bishop: These ideas apply to you?
McGee: No those rules weren't in place when we were together. At least I don't think so.
Bishop: What's with the two month cutoff? Abby's sabotaging herself. I've seen stuff like this before. We have to talk to her.
