Tv Season Info

Mark Harmon returns to lead the Series 5 cast as Leroy Jethro Gibbs, head of the elite Naval Criminal Investigative Service. The fifth series marks the departure of series creator Donald P. Bellisario as showrunner, though he remains an executive producer for the show. The 2007-2008 labour strike by the Writers Guild of America resulted in a condensed series, with only 19 episodes being produced, and a nearly three month gap between the airing of episodes 11 ("Tribes") and 12 ("Stakeout"). This series was notably marked by the departure of two recurring characters, Lt. Col. Hollis Mann (Susanna Thompson), and Dr. Jeanne Benoit (Scottie Thompson), as well as the death of Director Jenny Shepard (portrayed by Lauren Holly).

Critic Reviews for NCIS Season 5

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (0)

Although the fifth season of "NCIS" was its first without creator Don Bellisario serving as show runner, the series certainly didn't suffer creatively as a result of the transition.

I didn't even notice the time go by, which is always a good sign.

May 29, 2019 | Full Review…

The acting was on par and the story, although slightly predictable, was gripping.

Thankfully, last week's Season Five premiere took a chainsaw to Four's ugly baggage, sending tacky souvenirs and dirty laundry flying everywhere.
