There are a lot of things to be excited about in regards to NCIS season 17, but the 400th episode has to be high up on the list. How can it not be? This is a chance for the cast and crew to deliver something that is a real celebration of both the show and these characters that we’ve come to love for such a long period of time.

To date, though, the show’s producers have been fairly coy on what will be in said episode. Frank Cardea and Steve Binder jokes to us at the start of the fall that they had an idea bin laid out for various suggestions, and in a new interview with People Now this week, Wilmer Valderrama joked that there could be pregnancies, death, or a number of other subjects. In general, though, he noted that “they are definitely planning something big,” meaning that everyone involved is aware of the significance that comes with an episode at this point in a show’s run.
As for another subject, Valderrama firmly believes at this point that it’s up to the fans as to how long NCIS lasts. This is, after all, a series that is still seemingly going strong and has viewers all over the world. We do think a season 18 feels almost like a given — whenever the show does end, it will likely happen with some announcement long in advance. Given how important NCIS is to the history of CBS, the powers-that-be would be foolish to get rid of it without some sort of proper commemoration of what the show is and what it brings to the table.
For now, we’re just happy that there are some cool things coming soon — including the return of Cote de Pablo as Ziva come December 17.
