The nineteenth season of the American police procedural television series NCIS premiered on September 20, 2021, on CBS, for the 2021-2022 television season.
The season is the first with Law and Cole following the departures of Maria Bello and Emily Wickersham during the previous season. Harmon departed the series as a regular after the fourth episode, “Great Wide Open” but still appears in the title sequence.
An FBI team led by Parker has a warrant for Gibbs’ arrest due to his actions in the case against LeMere, but find his house deserted with a large hole in the basement (finally answering the series-long question of how he gets his boats out). Gibbs and McGee travel to Naktok Bay, Alaska to take down Sonova’s proposed copper mine that would destroy the ecosystem. The rest of the team confirms that the mine is the motive behind the killings, with several of the victims being opponents to the mine’s construction and environmental impact. After compiling enough evidence to arrest Sonova’s CEO, Gibbs has McGee arrest him to keep his agent from being caught in red tape, but Parker has a change of heart and lets Gibbs go, leading to Parker being fired from the FBI. Gibbs decides to stay in Naktok Bay, feeling a sense of peace he hadn’t felt since before the deaths of his wife and daughter, and bids an emotional farewell to McGee.
