Will Jamie Lee Curtis Return to NCIS?

by at . Comments

Jamie Lee Curtis' guest arc in NCIS Season 9 was as controversial as it was crucial, leaving fans polarized regarding Dr. Samantha Ryan and her relationship, professional and otherwise, with Leroy Jethro Gibbs.

What can we expect from her in the coming season?

Not a lot, if anything, according to the show's boss.

Gibbs With Ryan

Executive producer Gary Glasberg recently told TV Guide that the loss of Dr. Ryan isn't particularly hard on Gibbs, given everything else that transpired in the Season 9 finale and the fact that Ryan is alive.

"I really didn't want to treat this relationship as if she was dead," Glasberg said.

"The show has a history of doing that and that's not the case here. I'd like to believe that we approached it realistically, and that [she left because] there are priorities she has in her life."

As for whether we'll see Curtis' complex DOD PsyOps brain gramer on the show again, Glasberg says: "If they were able to reconnect down the road, I'd love to have Jamie Lee come back."

It certainly sounds like her story arc is over now, however. For more on what we can expect come September, follow this link for the NCIS Season 10 spoilers and teasers we know so far!

PLEASE, PLEASE don't bring back jlc. Her character and Gibbs had absolutely no chemistry. It seemed so forced. I have liked every other love interest of Gibbs'. I am a die hard fan of NCIS, but jlc makes me not even enjoy the show and makes me not want to watch. Leave her to doing the colon-cleansing yogurt commercials!

Please get rid of Jamie Lee Curtis. I didn't like her character at all. She was so secretive and seemed so smug. She and the person who played Col. Mann were not very feminine at all. Give Gibbs someone who fits well with his character.

I love Jamie Lee. The writers made her too hard and she and Jethro just did not fit. I had wished that it would work out because I am such a fan of her work. I hope they bring her back once in awhile. When they end this show they had better end with a love interest for Jethro or there will be hell to pay. lol.

Please get rid of jlc. I think she does not fit and her lines are not believable, and way above her pay grade. She needs to go so I can enjoy the show again. Besides,she is a terrible actress. Gibbs needs a softer and better looking woman. Smart and not sneaky would help.

Cannot stand the character Dr Ryan, hope JLC never returns to NCIS she was pushy, arrogant, secretive and not right at all for Gibbs

I never do this, but YES, I love JLC...absolutely loved seeing her on NCIS. No one would be better for Gibbs than a really strong and dominant woman. Besides, we were born on the same day 11/22. She's awesome! I think these others are just secretly fantasizing that they should be in the role. It's a show, not reality. If I had a say I'd say thumbs up to Jamie! WAY UP!

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.

McGee: Rule number 70 - keep digging till you hit bottom.
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.
