"We want to thank CBS and all of you guys, the amazing fans who watched every week and made us number one in our time slot. We can't wait to bring you more action-packed episodes from the beautiful island of Hawai'i."

The news comes after Gibbs actor Mark announced his dramatic exit from the franchise's main series, NCIS. On Monday night's episode, the actor ended his 18-year run as the CBS drama's lead, with his character deciding to retire from law enforcement.

While viewers were relieved that the character hadn't been killed off, many were left completely devastated by the surprise announcement nonetheless.

Another echoed this, tweeting: "I don't think you understand just how much I'm SOBBING right now! Gibbs has made an impact on so many people, and it shatters my heart to see him go."

However, a third added: "I'm gonna miss Gibbs too but you got to realize Mark has been doing NCIS 18 or 19 years and he's 70. He's getting old, he probably wants to spend time with his family. You gotta respect that, especially if you're fans of the show."
