"NCIS" fans are going to be excited to see Mark Harmon and the rest of the gang hit the TV when the show returns to the CBS lineup in September. While waiting for the stars to pick up their characters on the military crime series might be grueling, there is big news from the set of the show in Southern California. According to CBS News on Tuesday, the cast and crew got together to celebrate the 250th show and share a moment while working on the upcoming 12th season of the hit series.

As fans reflect on why the show has developed from a little crime drama into a big hit series, there has been some serious excitement on how the show will continue and a reflection of the past. From the spin-off series like “NCIS: Los Angeles” and the new “NCIS: New Orleans” to losing popular cast members like Cote de Pablo when she left the series, the fans have been there all along the way.

The show also has reason to celebrate the latest DVD. While the 11th season just wrapped up, the DVD of the entire season was released on Tuesday. According to USA Today on Tuesday, this DVD is one that viewers might want to pick up and watch before season 12 begins. Not only will it offer a moment to appreciate all the tight corners these characters face, but also remind everyone why the show is so loved.

So realistically how many more seasons can the cast of "NCIS" hang together and keep the number one spot in prime time? Well, for as long as the show seems relevant and offers a perspective of the job that Navy investigators seems to have in real life. There have been a few questionable decisions on the show (like the newest cast member who clearly doesn't fit,) but overall the fans have grown to love the show and will support it no matter what.

“NCIS” celebrating 250 shows is a big deal for the viewers and everyone hopes to see 250 more! Which would be another 10 plus seasons of quality stories where the cast solves crimes.
