Maria Bello, a 53-year-old actress, and singer have played Dr. Jackeline Sloane since season 15 of “NCIS,” a CBS series that premiered in September 2013; however, it has been revealed that after three years she will abandon the fiction created by Donald P. Bellisario and Don McGill.
According to Deadline, the interpreter known for her roles in films such as “Coyote Ugly”, “Meeting Jane Austen”, “Permanent Midnight”, “A History of Violence”, “Payback” and “The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor” As well as for his role in the series “ER”, he will leave the show in which he shared roles with Mark Harmon in its 18th season.
In the aforementioned medium, he points out that Maria Bello will only participate in eight episodes of the next installment of ” NCIS “, to give closure to the story of the forensic psychologist ‘Jack’ Sloane. This has not yet been confirmed by the chain or the actress herself.
WHY WILL MARIA BELLO LEAVE “NCIS”?
For now, it is known that Bello joined the cast of this criminal series in its fifteenth season with a three-year contract, the same one that expires in the next installment of NBC’s long-running fiction.
Season 18 of ” NCIS ” will continue with Mark Harmon and his team from the Naval Criminal Investigation Service after the previous installment was interrupted, the same as other productions, by the coronavirus pandemic.
That’s why episode 20, with guest star Christopher Lloyd, served as an impromptu season finale. Showrunner Frank Cardea told TVLine that that pending episode will “probably be what we’ll shoot first [once production resumes].”
“We have a lot of flexibility to air the first five or six episodes [of season 18] in any order we want,” added Cardea, “but we will still shoot 400 as the second and air it as the second.”
