The crime procedural drama series NCIS returned to TV for its sixteenth season in 2019 with a tremendous plot-changing twist. And Sean Murray has been part of the show for a long time.

The show threw a curveball at its viewers in its latest episode, Toil and Trouble, implying that Special Agent Timothy McGee could be leaving the show this year.

Is Agent McGee, aka Sean Murray, Leaving NCIS?

At the end of the episode, we saw agent McGee being confronted by a co-worker, who tells him something about a unique tech that has been sent for free. Does that mean he is “headhunted” for a new job? It seems so! But, there have been no clues to support this theory.

On the other hand, Sean Murray, who portrays McGee, has not made any announcements, nor has he signed for any different roles. In addition, neither the network nor the producers have said anything related to that subject.
