This can’t be happening. Cote de Pablo is reportedly leaving CBS’ NCIS, and breaking viewers’ hearts everywhere. For eight of the show’s 10 seasons, the Chilean-born actress has played special agent Ziva David, a former agent for Israel's Mossad.
According to USA Today, De Pablo will return in the fall to conclude her beloved character’s story on the drama. NCIS begins shooting its 11th season next week.
In a statement, the 33-year-old actress said she’s “had eight great years with NCIS and Ziva David.” She also gave shout-outs to the show’s executive producer Gary Glasberg, Harmon and her fellow cast mates.
