Another One Of NCIS’ Main Females Is Officially Leaving The Show, New Details
According to a new report from the folks over at TV Line, there has been official confirmation that one of the main females from CBS’s hit action/drama series “NCIS” has decided to quit! The announcement was just made today.
This person is none other than Forensic specialist Abby Sciuto portrayer Pauley Perrette (above right). It’s reported that she will stay on board for the rest of the current season 15 but after that, it will be lights out for her Abby role. Pauley hit up her official Twitter account earlier today, October 4,2017 to confirm this news with a lengthy letter to her fans.
In her letter, she revealed that she actually made the decision to leave last year. She also debunked rumors that have been going around claiming she has a skin care line. Apparently, there were also claims that NCIS and CBS was mad at her. She debunked those as well.
Here’s what she said in her official Twitter photo letter: “So, it is true that I am leaving NCIS after this season. There have been all kinds of false stories as to why. No, I don’t have a skin care line. No, my network and show are not mad at me!
It was a decision made last year.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 16 years. All the love, all the laughter, all the inspiration. I love her as much as you do.”
She also added a caption to her photo letter. It reads like this: “So it is true that I am leaving NCIS. There have been all kinds of false rumors as to why (NO I DON’T HAVE A SKIN CARE LINE.” You guys can view Pauley’s official Twitter post by Clicking Here.
Pauley has been a part of the NCIS TV show ever since it first started way back in September 2003. So, it’s been quite a long run for her. She never really gave a specific reason for why she’s quitting the show. So, I guess that will remain a mystery for now. Maybe one day she’ll reveal it.
Pauley’s departure will join other prominent characters that have left the show. They are Cote de Pablo aka Ziva David who left at the start of season 11. Michael Weatherly aka Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo who left to star in his own TV series for CBS called, “Bull.”It appears to be doing quite well. It landed a second full season with the network after it’s first season run.
Then just recently, Jennifer Esposito aka Special Agent Alexandra Quinn decided to depart after being on for just one season. We’re not sure what went down with that, but it was definitely a quick run.
TV Line pointed out that Pauley is one of only three of the remaining original castmembers. Will you guys miss Pauley aka Abby on the show? Let us know in the comments.
In related news, the new episode 3 of the current season 15 is next on the NCIS schedule. It’s entitled, “Exit Strategy.” We’ll be posting a preview for it in the next couple of days.
