NCIS Boss Weighs In on Season 10 Contract Talks for Unsigned Trio

Get More: Contract Talks

Heading into May sweeps, CBS’ NCIS — aka TV’s most-watched drama — had four series regulars unsigned for Season 10. As of Tuesday, David McCallum had inked a new deal to stick around as Ducky. But what of Michael Weatherly, Pauley Perrette and Sean Murray?

While speaking with show runner Gary Glasberg about the procedural’s season finale airing May 15, the conversation of course turned to the in-flux status of those three fan favorites, who portray Tony, Abby and McGee.

Noting that CBS Television Studios handles the nitty-gritty of contract talks “while I and the writers handle the creative side of things,” Glasberg nonetheless expressed, “I have no doubt that it will all work out.”

Series front man Mark Harmon, along with Cote de Pablo, re-upped with the hit show a year ago, as their respective deals drew to a close. The last time Weatherly, Perrette and Murray were in play — spring of 2010 — the talks dragged into the summer, at which point they each inked two-year extensions.

“I’ve got the best cast in the world, and people are excited about Season 10 and what’s to come,” Glasberg added. “I couldn’t be happier to work with these actors.”
