Sorry, 'NCIS' Fans, but Ziva Will Only Appear in a Handful of Season 17 Episodes

By

When Cote de Pablo first appeared on screen in the Season 17 premiere of NCIS, it felt like an old friend had finally returned home after a long absence. 

The actress originally left the show in 2013 after her beloved character, Ziva David, supposedly died in a mortar attack. But as fans saw in the Season 16 finale last May, the special agent is still very much alive… and in grave danger.

What happened to Ziva on NCIS?

In the first two episodes of Season 17, pieces of the puzzle pertaining to Ziva’s whereabouts over the past six years began to fall into place. The Israeli citizen revealed that she had faked her own death in order to protect her family after the targeted explosion at her father’s farmhouse.
