NCIS Fan Predicts Heartbreaking Reason For Agent Knight Plot – And Fans Will Be Gutted


NCIS season 21 ended on a cliffhanger as Agent Jessica Knight was offered an opportunity she unexpectedly chose to take in the finale.

An NCIS fan has predicted the real reason behind Agent Knight’s new job which most will be very unhappy to hear.

At the end of season 21, Agent Jessica Knight (played by Katrina Law) had been offered the role as chief training officer at her old team which is stationed on the other side of the country.

Her and boyfriend Jimmy Palmer (Brian Dietzen) hadn’t been seeing eye-to-eye as of late and following a particularly scary mission, she chose to accept the offer.

Jimmy did initially tell her to take the job as he was just willing to let her go but soon changed his mind but it was too late by this point.

With the CBS and Disney+ police procedural returning in September 2024, some believe this storyline was introduced for an unpopular reason.

Taking to Reddit, a fan explained that they watch the drama with their mum who is “insisting” that NCIS is coming to an end.

She thought this as the show is “giving all the characters closure and wrapping up their stories”.

The user continued: “My mum and I just finished watching the NCIS season finale with Knight accepting the offer that Vance was asking of her. We both initially thought she was going to say no, but she said yes.


“My mum under her breath said ‘they’re setting up for the series to end’.

“But I’m just wondering if they’d actually end the series, while bringing on one, potentially two spin-off series in its place?”

The fan also brought up Agent Alden Parker’s (Gary Cole) storyline which saw him have a vision of a little girl on the ship, stating that the series was trying to “rush in his backstory”.

Understandably, this didn’t sit well with the majority of those who commented on the Reddit thread.

One stated: “Knight will be back next season, Katrina Law is still under contract.

“Her leaving is just setting up a few episodes of her making her way back to the team/ her and Jimmy dealing with their relationship.

“CBS will run NCIS until it stops bringing in viewers, both on live tv and streaming.”

Another agreed: “The OG NCIS show won’t end anytime soon because it’s CBS’ only flagship franchise. Hawaii only got canceled because of budget and not necessarily ratings which is the story the network is trying to push rn [right now].

“I only see OG getting canceled if Gary Cole, Sean [Murray] or Brian [Dietzen] ask for significant salary changes or if the network merges with another.”

NCIS was renewed for season 22 earlier this year and while no release date has been announced, it is expected to debut sometime in September.

There are two spin-offs also in the works, in the shape of Origins and Tony and Ziva.

The first will delve into the backstory of Agent Leroy Gibbs (Mark Harmon) when he first joined NCIS while the latter is going to see what Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) and Ziva David (Cote de Pablo) get up to in Paris.
