NCIS Season 18 may be about to air on CBS, but the show is about to see the main cast member leave as Maria Bello announces her exit from the show. The actress, who plays forensic psychologist (and regular Gibbs) Jacqueline « Jack » Sloane, announced in July that she would be partially leaving during the current season..
In some ways, her exit from NCIS was expected. When she signed up for Procedures, the Coyote Ugly Actor’s contract was for three years, and this year expired. So instead of leaving the show as Pauley Perrette did in 2017, she is simply not renewing her contract.
Twice Golden Globe Nominee (for A History of Violence and The Cooler) already has a new project working on it, which could also be a reason to end her time with Jack Sloan..
The actress is currently working in pre-production on The Woman King, an all-female military unit drama starring Viola Davis and director Gina Prince-Bethwood will be a follow-up to her hit Netflix movie The Old Guard. This will be Bello’s debut as a writer and producer of a movie.
Although Jack Sloane is leaving during NCIS Season 18, viewers don’t have to say goodbye to the character yet.. She is set to appear in eight episodes this season in order to continue the show until her exit.
In a recent TVLine preview for the following season, Stephen Bender and Frank Cardia, modeling NCIS, gave fans a first glimpse of how Bello got out of the series.. The first said, “One of the things we always ask when we try to figure out how to get out of a character is,” What does this character deserve? “Sloan is a very strong character, she’s emotional, and we’re going to make her gain attention for that. I will say that.
He also added that they would not be in a hurry to find a replacement for the actor, saying, “There is a core team, and I think it is Maria’s job that we were able to find a lot to give her to do.. If it’s not Maria, I don’t know if we necessarily need to fill it in right away.
Meanwhile, Cardia promised that before Bello left the show he would deal with « the constant questioning of what is happening between her and Gibbs. ».
