We still have to wait a couple of weeks to see the new episodes of NCIS season 17, but we are already very excited about seeing "Ziva" (Cote de Pablo) on screen again! The CBS crime procedural show surprised us in May after teasing a possible return of the iconic character, which was finally confirmed a couple of days ago!

While the upcoming episodes will revolve around the relationship between friends and colleagues "Ziva" and "Leroy" (Mark Harmon), we can't stop thinking about the possibility of seeing "Ziva" and "Tony" (Michael Weatherly) together again!

The actress responds to rumours about "Tony's" possible return

Cote de Pablo recently opened up about the rumours regarding "Tony's" possible return to the show. "He's shooting a procedural" she said, before adding: "I don't think 'Ziva' and 'Tony' have seen each other or communicated in a long time." On the other hand Cote de Pablo's co-star Mark Harmon said that "Michael is a little busy at the moment."

Michael Weatherly left the show after "Ziva's" death, as of today we are still not sure about Weatherly reprising his role in one of the fan-favorite shows of all time, but in the meantime CBS showrunners recently teased fans will get all the details soon. NCIS season 17 is set to premiere on September 24.
