NCIS spoilers present some interesting cast news. Cote de Pablo is going to return (again) as Ziva David during some future episodes of the show. That’s great news, especially after fans got teased at the beginning of Season 17.
Ziva reappeared during the final moments of the Season 16 finale and then had an important role within the NCIS team for the first two episodes of Season 17. Then she vanished again. But fear not, as she is already on set again.
The photo below was posted to Instagram by actor Brian Dietzen, who plays Medical Examiner Jimmy Palmer on the NCIS cast. Diona Reasonover, who plays Forensic Scientist Kasie Hines, was the person who took the image on her iPhone.
As you can see, it is a new set photo where Kasie, Jimmy, and Ziva are sharing the screen. This will actually be the first time that Kasie and Ziva have been in the same scene together on NCIS, as they missed each other earlier in Season 17.
Exactly why is she back? We will all have to wait and see, but it will surely be dramatic and could likely involve the midseason finale before the show goes on its winter hiatus.
Sorry NCIS fans, despite the hopes that a return by Michael Weatherly as Anthony DiNozzo would run in conjunction with another appearance by Ziva David, that still doesn’t seem to be in the cards. Weatherly is pretty busy working on Bull Season 4 for CBS.
