NCIS season 17 : Ziva returning, Cote de Pablo explains why
Just a few weeks after his last appearance on the screen, Cote de Pablo – the interpreter of Ziva, is already back on the film sets of the season, 17 of NCIS. Attention spoilers.
At the end of the summer, Frank Cardeña and Steven D. Binder – the show runners of NCIS, informed TVLine that the return of Ziva David in the first two episodes was only the beginning of a longer appearance : “
Cote de Pablo will appear in at least two other episodes, which are expected to be released a little later in the season“. Cote de Pablo on the trays
And while that was expected, logically, to review Ziva next may to launch a new cliffhanger for teaser-the-future season 18, it would appear finally that the writers don’t want to wait that long. This is Brian Dietzen – the incomparable interpreter of Palmer, who revealed the info on Instagram : Cote de Pablo is already back on the trays.
In addition to a photo fun for marking the complicity found between the two actors (see below), Brian Dietzen revealed : “
guys, I really love having the opportunity to work with such good friends. Day very fun on the board today. Photo by Diona Reasonover“. What is the return for Ziva ?
At the present time, we do not know what to prepare writers about it (a reunion with Tony as supposed by the last reply between her and Gibbs ?). Nevertheless, we can already expect some new features compared to the start of the year.
And for good reason, this photo is taken in the lab, Kasie (Diona Reasonover), which makes us understand that Ziva will share finally one or more scene(s) with them, which was not the case in September. And most importantly, Ziva did not seem to be fleeing this time, suggesting a mental state more calm and therefore a plot more relaxed.
