NCIS SYDNEY is the next drama in the works, but will Ziva David actress Cote de Pablo travel halfway around the world to star..?
Just months after NCIS Hawaii debuted on CBS, the NCIS universe will expand once more. This time, the police procedural format will leave America for the first time and travel to sunny Sydney, Australia. One detail that fans are eager to learn is who will star in this latest spin-off.
Agent Ziva David Will Be Return on NCIS Sydney..?
NCIS Hawaii made its debut in September 2021, bringing a new investigative team to the island state.
The creators chose Vanessa Lachey, star of Love is Blind, to play Agent Jane Tennant this time around.
Tennant is not only a well-known face in the franchise, but she is also the first woman to serve as a team leader.
With NCIS Sydney on the horizon, there may be room for another recognizable lead, this time in the form of Agent Ziva David (Cote de Pablo).
Ziva joined the cast of NCIS in the third season after Agent Kate Todd (Sasha Alexander) d1ed, but she is regarded as an original member of the team.
She left at the end of Series 11 when Ziva chose to travel to Israel rather than stay in Washington, leaving behind her flirtatious colleague Agent Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly).
In 2016, actress de Pablo stated that she left NCIS because she admired her character.
During a Q&A, she stated, “Unfortunately, due to political issues and scripts that were not good enough, I chose not to [return to NCIS].”
She has, however, never ruled out a comeback, stating that she would be waiting for someone to write “something really fantastic for her.”
After it was thought she had d1ed in a mortar att4ck a few years ago, fans finally got their wish with a sh0ck1ng comeback in the final moments of season 16.
Fortunately, this was just a ruse to protect her family, Tony and their daughter Tali, whom he had taken to Paris to begin a new life.
Ziva left Agent Leroy Gibbs’ (Mark Harmon) side in season 17 to be reunited with them, and as far as viewers are concerned, they are living happily ever after.
However, this does not rule out the possibility of Ziva returning to the field in the future.
The actress de Pablo has already shown that she is eager to return to the franchise, and NCIS Sydney could be the new opportunity she is looking for.
However, no information on who will star in the Australia spin-off has been released as of yet.
It is set to premiere in 2023, but any information about the cast is being kept under wraps for the time being.
For the time being, fans can look forward to the return of NCIS season 19.
The CBS series hasn’t aired since last month due to the Winter Olympics in Beijing, but the regular television schedule will resume soon.
