After more than 18 seasons Mark Harmon has left the show. Monday's episode, titled "Great Wide Open," served as his exit.

In it, Harmon as Gibbs is in Alaska with Special Agent Timothy McGee (played by Sean Murray) when Gibbs tells him "I'm not going back, Tim. I'm not going back home."

The show's executive producer and showrunner Steve Binder told Deadline that Mark will continue to be an "integral part of the fabric of the show."
