This is the place for season 8 news. There will be a separate topic for speculation.

Mind you, this has not been confirmed by either CBS or the people involved, BUT...

On the CBS message board, a fan reports that Mark Harmon (currently in Germany on a promotion) has said that the entire cast now has signed contracts for season 8. :rainbounce:

For once I'm actually glad for something that Ausiello says: "Still at the negotiating table: Michael Weatherly and Sean Murray. A well-placed source, however, assures me that both are close re-signing."

It's been noted that since PP is currently in Australia, the timing of the announcement of her contract signing is a little weird. Business here in the US, even in the electronic age, still largely requires real ink signatures.

One wonders if this news wasn't leaked at a chosen time.

I meant to mention the PP is out here doing the talk show circuit but I only found out where they announced her on my radio station. By then, she'd done most of her things. There are probably some clips on youtube.

Looks like she was on "The Circle" on channel 10 (the same channel that shows NCIS) 3rd June. I've never heard of the show. Oh and she did the 7pm project.

Here are some article links:
http://www.tv.com/pauley-perrette-on-th ... 23110.html
http://www.pauley-perrette.net/index.ph ... australia/
http://www.cbs.com/forum/posts/list/112128.page

The last link has a few articles and videos. I have something in common with her - I have been on the Kanimbla - and down Oxford street. It's OK by day...

Did anyone see PP on GNW? I might ask down in the Aussie thread. I wasn't going to watch because Americans on Aussie programs usually just look embarassingly bewildered but my husband found it while channel surfing and called me in for the last half hour. I think she said all of 10 words in that time, the rest of the time she looked like she had been hit by a truck.

Someone should have warned her about Aussie comics and GNW in general. This is a group of highly intelligent, well-informed people who speak at twice her speed. They don't put in pauses waiting for audience laughter, they just barrel on. They also insult Obama (well he did stand up our prime minister TWICE), nuns who open massage parlours etc. They even included lots of US news stories and she had heard on NONE of them. Made me appreciate how much effort Michael Weatherly put into his visit here. In one week he increased the NCIS ratings here by 30 percent (and they have never dropped) and two years later I read an article naming him as the benchmark for all visiting US entertainers. At least NCIS isn't shown on channel 9, "Hey, hey, it's Saturday" would have destroyed her.

Yeah, I didn't watch (mainly because I was in the car, but I wouldn't have anyway). Someone probably should have warned her.

Yeah, I watched it, like I said in the Aussie thread. I do think she looked like a fish out of water most of the time, I mean our humour is so different to American humour, someone should have warned her for what she was in for. I don't think she knew what she was getting into to be honest :P But then, with Aussie comedians, who does? :P lol

Yeah, I think our humour is closer to the British than it is to Americans; the former adapt quite quickly, but the latter seem to wear a "Bwah?" expression most of the time. :inquisitive:

Michael Weatherly has signed his new contract for NCIS, according to Ausiello.

That leaves just Sean Murray without a contract.

All reliable sources expect him to sign soon, but I know I won't relax until he has done so.

CBS Readies Video Games for "NCIS," "Next Top Model"

Ubisoft is on board with CBS Consumer Products to release two video games for TV franchises “NCIS” and “Next Top Model.”
The NCIS game will hit in 2011 and will be available on all major gaming platforms, as well as downloadable and online.

On the heels of the game release of America’s Next Top Model last week for Nintendo DS and Wii, CCP and Ubisoft plan to release Canadian and Australian versions later this year.

NCIS Stars' Contract Dispute--Update
June 16, 2010 07:35 AM EDT

The entertainment website http://www.tvsquad.com is reporting there have been some major movements lately in the previously reported contract talks involving several stars of CBS' mega-hit drama, 'NCIS'.

Back in April, just as sweeps were approaching, the news broke that four major players from the cast were still unsigned for the upcoming eighth season: Michael Weatherly (DiNozzo), Pauley Perrette (Abby), David McCallum (Ducky) and Sean Murray (McGee). About a week later, that report was updated to state that McCallum had indeed been signed to return for the eighth season.

TvSquad is now reporting that both Perrette and Weatherly have signed multi-season contracts for undisclosed amounts of money. It was thought the two were making under $100,000 per episode and had rejected prior low-ball offers from the network.

All that appears to remain is Sean Murray. In a previous article, I speculated that perhaps the show was preparing for another major cast shift. 'NCIS' had survived two previous major changes when Sasha Alexander left after season two and Lauren Holly left after season five. I was hung out to dry for my opinion that Murray's departure would be the least disturbing to the show, not because I dislike Murray or his character, but because I believed his to be the most expendable.

We didn't see any major movements in May's season finale, although it does appear Gibbs' father will be killed. I don't believe that means McGee is safe. Again, although I would hate to see him leave the show, the recent developments for Weatherly and Perrette leave him exposed.

We'll update this as developments break.


Soapbox time. If this doesn't get you posting anguished replies, nothing will.

I know it's cruel and wrong of me as a McGee fan but I can see this guy's point. McGee is no longer the Probie, Abby has all his computer skills and even Vance is a computer geek. So basically by 'progressing' McGee (SM words) they are depriving the character of a niche. There is almost nothing to distinguish him from Tony now. I suppose I'm still a little disappointed that the character had a geek-en-ectomy. I miss the ties, oversized suits and the stutter (and the adult geeks I know with stutters keep on stuttering their entire lives) and even little things like the tendency to carry around great wads of cash for emergencies. They took out all the little character traits and turned him from McGee the character into Sean Murray the person. Now they have to justify keeping him at all. They did a better job with Bud in JAG.

I'm sure he'll sign anyway, I'm just worried that he's become a logical choice for a shark-jump episode later on down the track.

On the plus side, if they do kill McGee off, we'll have turned away and missed the shows decline into mediocrity. :thinking: Small consolation. :P

What I really don't want, even if you're right, Oz, is for them to kill Tim off. They can have him transfer to another office, another team, or whatever, but if he goes, I don't want it to be because he's dead. Heck, when they killed off Michelle Lee and made her a villain, it was a shock to my system and I didn't even like her all that much.

Thanks Oz. I know. It hurts.

It's been on the forum in May, but here's once more the link as to why he "was hung out to dry for my opinion that Murray's departure would be the least disturbing to the show, not because I dislike Murray or his character, but because I believed his to be the most expendable."

http://www.gather.com/viewArticle.actio ... 4978246226

I must admit to having been a bit harsh on Tony in my reply... :embarassed: I was too much on a roll when protecting our Geek. You'll know which part I wrote... Some of you will have recognized my writing style by now.

BTW: 'progressing' McGee was not a bad thing. It was a realistic one. I saw it this way: a young probie improving and gaining more confidence for a job that is both demanding and dangerous.
Look on the bright side, Oz: he still has his endearing moments.

The last thing I want is seeing him being killed! :gah: I wouldn't want to see that episode.

I don't even want to think about this. :'(

Some of these "news" sites are just scaremongers. When there's real news, the professional sites -- like Ausiello on Entertainment Weekly -- will be the first to carry it.

I don't know why SM being the last sign is necessarily a bad omen anyway. After all, someone has to be last. We haven't heard anything about bad blood between the actors and the producers. We really haven't heard anything except that there is some sort of delay in signing (and is it really that much of a delay?) If the show were still going right now, would this even be news? I doubt it.

Good points, Teri. It isn't a bad omen. We were told when this came up a few months ago that all of this is routine, and signing might take as long as early July, just before the new season would start filming. We were also told that it was expected that everyone would be on board. There have been no indications that CBS wants to cut anyone from the roster of their #1 scripted show.

If we were to believe some of the rumors out there, they'd have us thinking that MH is on his way out because he's over the age-57 manadatory retirement age for special agents. (Points: They've never said how old Gibbs is. They may not care about the real-life manadatory retirement age. And Joe Spano (Fornell) is older than MH is.)

I'm glad everyone is on board, now wecan due some serious speculation.

Well, not everyone's on board yet. Sean Murray still doesn't have a contract -- or, at least, it hasn't been reported that he has one.

I wouldn't be worried if it weren't for the very unexpected shake-up at Criminal Minds. Now I'm not sure what to think. I can also understand his character being the most expendable. I think the average fan watches for Gibbs, TIVA, or Abby. For a lot of people, McGee is just kind of there.

I wasn't able to get to the gather.com website while I was at work, but now that I'm home I can.

Sure enough, the blog Ozgeek points out above is by the same person (Greg Stephens) who got us a little upset back in May for predicting that Tim would likely be killed off. You can find our discussion of it on page 41 of the Season 7 News! thread.

As far as I can recall--and I troll the web a lot--he's the only blogger I've seen who's been predicting doom and gloom for McGee. And he's just a blogger, with no apparent insider knowledge. So I wouldn't put a lot of weight into his statements on this.

I don't know if anyone has seen the E3 2010 interview with Sean and Brian.

http://e3.gamespot.com/video/6266237/

At the end, they talk about coming back for Season 8. To me, it sounds like Sean more and likely will be coming back. They were talking about coming back in about 3 weeks. They aren't for sure about things yet.

I was a little nervous with the shake up on CM and CSI - Miami....Eddie Cibrain isn't coming back.
I really don't think I could watch without McGee.

Hello and a good morning!

I was about to insert the link, too. Had it ready, copied and all... You beat me, Kelley. ;D

To me, it looked like they were really going to be there, both, for season 8. Sean appeared confident enough, or he was still high on the games... ;)

I'd find it hard, too, to watch NCIS minus Sean.

Can I add something here, you are all saying what if Sean doesn't return one day.........look at it from my point of view if Mark/Gibbs goes, I go to, I'm afraid. I mean NCIS is Gibbs. It started as Gibbs.............

My apologies, Pat. You're right. :embarassed:

It's just that these past months, all that passed the NCIS fora was about who had signed a contract and who hadn't... yet. On the CBS board, some Gibbs and Tony fans were a bit harsh in there opinions on the other characters. Of course we realize Gibbs IS and will always be the main character: as you said, it all started with him. And Tony and Ducky. This trio are the only ones left of the original cast from season 1, right? Gibbs IS a leader, too! The team depend on him.
Anyway: some kept hammering on the fact that McGee was expendable and even "hated" him! Expendable, that I can understand, but hate???
I like all the characters with McGee on the top of my list, I admit. But still: I love them all! Even Director Vance whom certain CBS-NCIS fans would rather see dead!

Mark Harmon/Gibbs has never been in danger of being left out from the show. Sean Murray/McGee, on the other hand, has been or still is. So I've never been worried for a second that Gibbs would leave: he's the anchor!

So, again, my sincere apologies, Pat, also for this wee rant of mine 'cause I couldn't explain it in one simple sentence. :hug2col:

Abby was in it from the beginning, too, Linda. Kate was in the first episode of the season (obviously, she's dead now), and Tim joined as recurring in the sixth (or seventh) episode of season 1.

Oops... Abby! She'll kill me, for sure! :gah:
Oh, I'm so dead now...

I didn't count Kate, because she's dead, as you say. Still miss her. And Jenny having pushed up daisies, too...
And I didn't include Tim, because he was only a recurring character, after all.

I agree with you. I didn't start watching the show until the end of season 2. McGee was what brought me into the show. I like all the characters but for me it would be hard to watch without McGee. I would try and watch it but I don't know how much longer I would. I am hoping SM signs so everyone will be back.

Oh Pat: don't worry. It's just that my heart is so full of Sean Murray - like yours is of Mark Harmon, I suppose. That's what these actors can do to us... ;D
Anyroad: when I watched Sean and Brian on that E3 Gamespot vid, he seemed so excited about the new season! I doubt he would willingly give that up. Besides, these days one should be happy to have a job.

Dr Bobby Caldwell??? You've kindled my curiosity! St Elsewhere...

The fans are getting restless. Someone has launched a "SeanMurrayPlzSign" Twitter page, here.

ATM, only the most recent tweets are available.

I'm in limbo... hoping, dreading, trusting... That's about it for now. :-/

He seemed pretty confident in that E3 Gamespot interview with Brian, but so many think he's not worth being on the show. Only wanted him for comic relief...

But, hey, don't mind me... The weather is dull and it reflects on me...

He has lots of fans. I've seen them in hordes on the net. ;D Don't worry about the naysayers.

I think he'll sign, and all will be fine. I do hate weekends in times like these; we're unlikely to hear of a signing on a Saturday or Sunday.
