Cote de Pablo to Exit 'NCIS' in Season 11

After playing Ziva David for 10 seasons on NCIS, Cote de Pablo has decided to leave the long-running procedural that ultimately made her a household name. Rumors about the 33-year-old actress' departure  first circulated when her character got injured in a car crash and subsequently resigned from the agency last season. Speculations were further fueled when her contract expired at the end of season 10, making her the only cast member without a deal. 

 

In a joint statement, CBS and producer CBS TV Studios confirmed the news: "We respect Cote's decision, thank her for being an important part of the NCIS team, and for eight terrific years playing Ziva David. Cote and CBS share a great respect for the NCIS audience, and we look forward to working with her and the producers on appropriate closure in this chapter of Ziva's story." 

 

Since joining the cast of NCIS in season 3, Cote de Pablo has won an Imagen Award for Best Supporting Actress in Television in 2006 and an ALMA Award for Favorite Television Actress in 2011. She was also nominated for an Imagen Award in 2008, 2009 and 2011, as well as an ALMA Award in 2008 and 2009.

"I've had eight great years with NCIS and Ziva David," the actress said in a statement. "I have huge respect and affection for Mark, Gary, Michael, David, Rocky, Pauley, Brian, Sean, all of the team and CBS. I look forward to finishing Ziva's story." 

Cote de Pablo is expected to grace the beginning of season 11, which will kick off production next week and is set to premiere on September 24.

    Cote is fantastic for the series but if there is something else she wants to do, whether acting or just being home, more power to her. I hope that she could be retired ALIVE and not just killed off. You know that people do change careers without dying. Good luck Cote in what ever you do and everyone of NCIS fans wish you the best in what ever you do.

    I think her departure from NCIS saddens me because for me her character balances the character of Michael as Tony. Also I love the character of Ziva, a very strong personality with an attitude of "One of the Guys" and when needed a very sexy and glamorous woman. I hope she can be in NCIS for a couple of episodes before they totally end her character "Ziva David". Ziva will be greatly missed.

    I am saddened to hear of the departure of a wonderful character on the NCIS program as she has been a wonderful team member. However, I wish the best to Cote de Pablo as she explores other acting opportunities.
