Mark Harmon will remain on “NCIS.”
After Celebrity Insider posted a rumor Thursday that the CBS veteran would be departing the series due to “failing health,” Harmon’s rep told Page Six that the report “is completely false.”
CBS didn’t return our request for comment.
Harmon, 67, serves as an executive producer on “NCIS” and “NCIS: New Orleans.” He’s played the character Leroy Jethro Gibbs since the original series’ 2003 premiere.
He is also set to executive produce a new CBS series based on John Sanford’s “Prey” novels.
The last major departure from the long-running series was Pauley Perrette, who alluded to physical assaults on the set of the show only days after her departure. She had been on the series for 15 seasons. She later thanked the network for supporting her after she came forward with her allegations.
“I want to thank my studio and network CBS. They have always been so good to me and always had my back,” Perrette tweeted.
