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!

I didn't like the Dr Ryan character either she didn't suit Gibbs at all. And he was always wondering if she was keeping something from him or not telling the truth. Im not sure whether I disliked the character or JLC playing it that way. I'd rather not see her back tbh and definitely not as a regular it would spoil it for me.

I do not want jlc back at all, she added nothing to the team, but was arrogrant, and smug and thought she knew everything. No i don't want to see her at all in season 10

@Michael- Gibbs had known Ziva for 4 years when all the Ari stuff showed up again at the end of season 6. There is a big difference in knowing someone for 4 years and knowing someone for 4 weeks. Gibbs actually trusts Ziva and doesn't have to look for a deeper meaning in everything that she says. Gibbs was always wondering if Ryan was telling him the truth. I do have a quesiton for you. What evidence do you have to support your claim of Ziva taking Tony's place on the team?

Please do not bring Ryan back, she was not a good fit for NCIS at all, an certainly not a good match for Gibbs. I like JLC to stay gone

Find someone beside Dr.Ryan for Gibbs. Really, you could do a whole lot better than that for Gibbs sake! It's like you all are trying to destory to show. Get back to dealing with the members of the TV show. It was more interesting. Besides why would Gibbs need Dr.Ryans premission to do anything.

But Gibbs could't trust Ziva and he not only allowed her back on the team but has now had her replace tony as her right hand agent

I didn't really have anything against her, but I don't want to see her back. Gibbs couldn't have a real relationship with her because he couldn't trust her. She withheld information from the team. It was nice to see Gibbs with someone in his age range. Ryan grabbed my interest when she was waiting for Ziva's friend Monique to come to D.C. The rest of the time she just acted like she was better than eveyone else. I like JLC, but I don't want to see her back as Ryan.

I hope not I don't like Ryan It nice Gibbs has some his own age to date but after the 2nd episode she was on I didn't like her and I started not trusting her.

Dr Samantha Ryan does not take any screen time away any more then Ziva mentor or Vance family

The character of Dr Samantha Ryan was just awful...if she comes back on a regular basis, it will make the show unwatchable for me. I'm not against a character that is the same age...but her know it all, smug attitude, just really put me off. I agree that she added nothing to the show and took away screen time from regulars that we don't get to see enough of. Please no more Dr Samantha Ryan!

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.
