NCIS fans will recall how important Abby Sciuto was to the team, but where has actor Pauley Perrette gone..?
NCIS fans adored Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette), who starred in the hit procedural for 15 seasons before departing in 2018. Some fans may be wondering what the actor has been up to since and where they can catch her next – here’s everything you need to know.
Where is Pauley Perrette, the star of Abby Sciuto, these days?
Abby was one of the original team members in the long-running CBS show NCIS, having first appeared in the JAG pilots for the show.
For her bright demeanor on the team, the quirky and gothic forensic scientist was a fan favorite.
Her relationships with her surrogate father figure Leroy Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and her squabbling sibling vibe with Tony DiNozzo were also popular with viewers (Michael Weatherly).
As a result, when she announced her departure from the show in season 15, fans were devastated.

Abby made her final appearance in the season 15 episodes One Step Forward and Two Steps Back, where she was involved in a brutal storyline.
This followed the d3ath of MI6 agent Clayton Reeves (Duane Henry) while protecting Abby from a hitman hired to murd3r her.
She was severely injured as well, and she resigned from NCIS to travel to England with Reeves’ body and establish a charity in his honor.
Perrette announced her departure from the show on Twitter in 2017 to her fans.
“I hope everyone will love and enjoy EVERYTHING ABBY, not only for the rest of this season, but for everything she has given all of us for the past 16 years,” she wrote.
“All the love, laughter, and inspiration…”I adore her just as much as you do.”
Some fans have been wondering what the actor has been up to since her last appearance on the show.
Perette had a number of roles outside of NCIS while she was on the show.
This included characters such as Nickleby in Fantasy Hospital and Robin in When We Rise. Her first acting role after NCIS was in the new CBS sitcom Broke, which premiered in early 2020.
In the show, she played Jackie, a single suburban mother whose life is turned upside down when her sister shows up on her doorstep.
Unfortunately, the show was canceled after only one season and will not be renewed.
In response to the cancellation, Perrette tweeted: “About the ‘limited series’ #BROKE many new episodes are airing.”
“This show re-established my faith in people and in this industry.” I’m so grateful to have worked with this cast and crew.
“These are the best people I’ve ever worked with.” I was healed. It influenced me. Completed me. So fortunate.”
Perrette co-owns Donna Bell’s Bake Shop in Manhattan, New York City, in addition to acting.
She has also had a successful singing career as the lead singer of the all-female band Lo-Ball.
