Five NCIS Stars Sign New Contracts for Season 12

NCIS fans don't have to worry about saying farewell to any other members of the team anytime soon.

Series stars Sean Murray (Timothy), Pauley Perrette (Abby), David McCallum (Ducky), and Rocky Carroll (Leon) have all signed new deals that will extend through Season 13 of the long-running procedural, reports. The last remaining unsigned actor, Michael Weatherly (Tony), is expected to close his deal very soon. 

The other cast members, Mark Harmon (Gibbs), Brian Dietzen (Jimmy), and Emily Wickersham (Ellie), were already signed on for the show's upcoming 12th season. NCIS was renewed in March.

The news comes less than a year after longtime cast member Cote de Pablo abruptly decided to leave TV's most-watched drama last summer. Her character, Ziva, was written off in the Oct. 1 episode and she was subsequently replaced by Wickersham, who joined the series this season as Ellie Bishop.

NCIS airs Tuesday nights at 8/7c on CBS. Watch the latest episode here.

(Full disclosure: is owned by CBS.)
