For the past 8 seasons of NCIS, Cote De Pablo has played Ziva David, but Ziva's story is coming to an end and will be leaving the show soon.

As TV's most-watched drama, NCIS will be a little different without Ziva sassing DiNozzo constantly and going undercover for cases.

De Pablo announced that she will remain on the show until Ziva's story is finished. Her contract expired after the most recent season and she has chosen not to renew it.

The only other cast member with a contract expiring this year was Mark Harmon, but he renewed it in February, guaranteeing his presence on the show in the future.

We wish Cote De Pablo the best of luck with her future and will miss her greatly on NCIS!

Season 11 of NCIS will premiere on September 24 on CBS.
