Why Is Emily Wickersham, AKA Ellie Bishop Leaving The Show?
Even though Ellie hasn’t been around as long as some of her other coworkers, she has a special place in our hearts; she has played the character for the better part of a decade and is in no way a forgettable character. She has been a part of the NCIS family since her debut in Season 11. After the season 18 finale, Ellie was sent on an undercover mission, which she had been preparing for.
This is not out of the ordinary as characters go undercover. But the actress went on Instagram to announce that Ellie Bishop won’t be returning from her mission. She added that she had a wonderful time working on NCIS, and now it’s time to hang up the role for good.

We know that the show has already been renewed for the 20th season. The show has been on top of ratings for well over a decade now, and we can expect several more seasons for the 20th season’s release date. If we look at the pattern in which the show has premiered in the latest seasons, you will notice that all of them were in September.
So, it is safe to assume that the 20th season is expected to release somewhere during September 2023. Quite possibly on the 25th of September 2023 as it’s a Monday.
Should You Watch It?
NCIS is an excellent show. Nonetheless, it’s very long. 380+ episodes over 19 seasons long. What’s more, the 20th season is right around the corner. The show has an excellent cast, and the story takes off after the first couple of seasons. Nineteen seasons might seem like a big commitment, but if you are ready to take the risk, I swear you will not regret your decision. The show has been in the Top 5 most rated shows in the country.
