Recently, TV Shows Ace revealed that Cote de Pablo would reprise her role as Ziva David for several NCIS Season 17 episodes. She was in the first two episodes, and she is now back to film more! When will NCIS fans see Ziva David return?

Ziva Is Back On NCIS For At Least Two More Episodes

Before NCIS Season 17 premiered, TV Shows Ace reported that Ziva David would appear in the first two episodes. Those were the episodes “Out of the Darkness,” and “Into The Light.” She was then slated to return for two additional episodes that would air sometime in the late fall or early winter.  So, Cote is back to continue Ziva’s journey to Tali, and presumably Tony (Michael Weatherly).

Cote de Pablo On Set Again!

Brian Dietzen (Jimmy Palmer) shared a photo of him and Cote hugging on Instagram. He captioned the photo with “Man, I do love that I get to work with such good friends. Fun day on set today.” And he listed the photo credit as costar Diona Reasonover.

Diona, whose forensic scientist character, Kasey Hines,  replaced Pauley Perrette’s Abby Sciuto, added a bit of humor by commenting, “These photo credits are gonna be GREAT for my iPhone photography business.”

This photo seems to indicate that Ziva will be spending some quality time with Jimmy and Kasey. Sounds like Ziva has a dead body and may need the two experts to determine a strange cause of death. This should be a lot of fun! Ziva already knows the emotional Jimmy, so that could provide an opportunity for Ziva to open up.

But what about Kasey and Ziva? We don’t totally know what Kasey feels about Ziva. Kasey may not get all fan girl with Ziva and that could lead to an interesting storyline. She was pretty hard on Torres (Wilmer Valderrama), Bishop (Emily Wickersham) and McGee (Sean Murray) for keeping Ziva’s return a secret from Vance (Rocky Carroll). She may not be open to keeping any Ziva secrets or be ok with some of Ziva’s clandestine contacts.


NCIS and Ziva David fans, are you excited about the return of Cote de Pablo? Do you think she needs to return back to Tali or Tony? Be sure to check back with TV Shows Ace for the latest on NCIS. NCIS airs Tuesday nights on CBS.
