NCIS is back for the remainder of Season 16 and it looks like we are in for another shocking twist. The series has teased that one member of the team might be getting the boot by the Season 16 finale – and fans are convinced Timothy McGee (Sean Murray) will be the next one to go.
Losing a character like McGee would be a major blow to the show, especially following Pauley Perrette’s exit in Season 15. McGee is one of a handful of original characters left and most fans never thought he would get killed off. But events in the second half of this season has fans worried about his future.

In the episode, “Toil and Trouble,” we found out that a tech firm has been courting McGee to join their company. McGee received a box of goodies from the company, which Kasie later discovered. McGee then told Kasie that the firm had offered him a bunch of money to leave NCIS, though he refused to say whether or not he accepted the job.
It is unclear if the show is writing off McGee or if this is just some misdirection to keep things interesting. If McGee’s story is over, Murray has not made any indication that his time on NCIS is coming to an end.
Apart from Murray’s character, there has been some speculation that Mark Harmon is planning on leaving the series after Season 16. Those rumors, however, were debunked after it was revealed that Harmon’s contract continues through Season 17. The actor also has a new show in the works on CBS, so his relationship with the network is still going strong.
