NCIS isn't going anywhere. CBS announced it's renewed the long-running drama for two more seasons, guaranteeing seasons 14 and 15, after star Mark Harmon signed a new two-year deal. Please tell your dads.

NCIS is currently the No. 1 drama in the US and worldwide.

"It's extraordinary that in its 13th season and with over 300 episodes to its credit, NCIS continues to excel at such a high level on a global scale," Glenn Geller, president of CBS Entertainment, said in a statement. "It is testimony to an amazing cast, led on and off the screen by the exceptional Mark Harmon, for skillfully bringing this universally appealing team of heroes to life; and to Gary Glasberg and his writers for crafting compelling stories that feature NCIS's signature blend of mystery, quirk, drama and comedy every single week."

The series currently averages 20.5 million viewers, up 4 percent from last year and on pace to be the No. 1 drama (in total viewers) for a seventh consecutive season. News of NCIS's renewal comes on the heels of Michael Weatherly's announced exit. Weatherly will depart at the end of season 13. NCIS also stars Pauley Perrette, Sean Murray, Rocky Carroll, Brian Dietzen, Emily Wickersham and David McCallum.

Harmon is also an executive producer on NCIS: New Orleans.

NCIS airs Tuesdays, 8 p.m. on CBS.
