NCIS Fans Agree This Was The Best Season With Torres And Bishop

"NCIS" on CBS has been on the air for over 18 years, currently airing its 19th season. With so many episodes, it shouldn't be a surprise that many different cast members have come and gone over the years, with three of the main cast members — Michael Weatherly, Cote de Pablo, and Pauley Perrette — leaving sometime within the past five or so years. Although their departures have been tough for fans to take, "NCIS" has offset this by constantly bringing in new characters to fill the space, many of whom have become fan-favorites over the years. 

A few major characters who have joined "NCIS" in later years are Special Agent Eleanor Bishop, played by Emily Wickersham, and Special Agent Nicholas Torres, played by Wilmer Valderrama. The former joined the show in Season 11, while Torres was added to the lineup in Season 14 of "NCIS." Many fans really love Bishop and Torres as main members of the team, and one "NCIS" viewer created a poll to find out exactly which season with these two characters fans think is the best. 

Season 16 was voted Bishop and Torres's best season

Unfortunately for fans of Bishop and Torres on "NCIS," their time together has come to an end — at least for now — as Wickersham left the show after Season 18, but the two characters clearly left a mark on fans. One fan on Reddit with the username TakenAccountName37 posed the question to fellow "NCIS" viewers as to "What's your favorite season with the complete team of Gibbs, Bishop, McGee and Torres?" The poll options were Season 16, 17, or 18, and Season 16 came out as the clear winner. While fans who voted for the winning season didn't explain their reasoning, those who picked 17, which came in second, shared that they "picked season 17 because [of] Ziva," while a follow up comment declared that she "saves" Season 17. 

By Season 16, both Bishop and Torres have become comfortable as members of the "NCIS" team, working alongside others like Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and McGee (Sean Murray). This season also puts a bigger focus on the two's developing relationship with each other, hinting that it has the potential to become more. By the end of the season, it's made obvious that Torres has romantic feelings for Bishop, but he hasn't told her yet. Overall, there are a lot of super sweet and honest moments between the two, as well as the entire team, in Season 16, so it's really no wonder that fans picked this specific season as the best.
