NCIS – Cote de Pablo Not Returning for Michael Weatherly’s Exit

In previewing original cast member Weatherly’s farewell storyline/final episode (airing May 17), NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg has only ever indicated that former team member Ziva David would merit a mention. “You can’t have Tony leave the show and not get into that in some respect,” he told TVLine last month, “so plan on it being discussed and handled, even if it’s in background.”

Elsewhere in the discussion, de Pablo said she remains “very close” with Weatherly, adding: “One of the greatest things about my job is that every once in a while you meet people and say, ‘They’re going to be in my life forever,’ and I think he’s one of them.”
