Although the production of the drama has stated that Mark Harmon cameos in the future of NCIS are not ruled out, many fans are wondering if Leroy Gibbs will return before the end of the 19th season, and if there is a chance that he could return at least with a special appearance.
Keep in mind, Harmon continues as executive producer of NCIS. Perhaps the fact that he remains working behind the scenes for the CBS series could be a motivating element that maintains the hope of his eventual return in this installment that is about to end or in the one that has just been renewed.
