Fans started a petition to get Cote back to NCIS. GO HERE TO THE PETITION

For 8 years, Cote de Pablo has been an intrinsically important part of the CBS smash hit that is NCIS. Voted TV’s Sexiest Law Enforcement Officer, and even one of the US’s all time favorite celebrities, Cote has delighted us with her presence on the show as her beautiful yet deadly character Ziva David.

Now after an 8 season run with her on board, the 22 million average viewers of NCIS are forced to look at the bleak future of a program without her, and that is something that has shocked and devastated a large amount of people.

Ziva is a character that has inspired many girls and women to become the people they are today: to not give up through hardship, fight for their own happiness and find your family. She has taught values such as strength, resilience and courage. I know she has been a huge role model to me personally and it absolutely devastates me to see her character written off like this after such a long time.

So this is why I am making this petition today: please bring Cote back! NCIS isn’t NCIS without Cote de Pablo, and this is on behalf of all viewers out there who feel the same.

Cote is one of the main reason I watch NCIS if she’s not on it I’m going to stop watch it been a die hard since it 1st came out


link 11th July 2013 at 5:16 pm

Please keep Ziva on the show, why take away a grt asset from the show, they obviously want the show to flop, so as per usual they remove a popular character why? costs too high ? Bring her back pls and do not remove any more characters ty


link 11th July 2013 at 5:17 pm

They need to bring her back she helps in what makes the show I watch it for all of them but more for her


link 11th July 2013 at 5:21 pm

Please keep her and all the cast that is what makes NCIS…. besides her & Tony HAVE to get married & have a kid that would make the show


link 11th July 2013 at 5:23 pm

Dont let her go. This would be the last season of NCIS. She replaced Kate and in my opinion Kates character was good but Zivasi GREAT character. Her not coming back for a whole season makes me not even want to watch. Because her character wi just be killed off. I no longer watch Two and a half men because it is no longer the same. Work something out with Cote she is an assest to NCIS.


link 11th July 2013 at 5:24 pm

Please Cote stay with us ! Please , you couldn’t leave NCIS :'(


link 11th July 2013 at 5:29 pm

As much as I’d like to believe that this is a personal decision, I’m getting that Torri Higginson/Stargate Atlantis situation vibe. Absolutely fuming. I think I will be boycotting the show from this point on. Watched too many shows go down the drain due to situations like this. Can’t put up with it.


link 11th July 2013 at 5:30 pm

Noooo! Can’t get rid of Ziva!

Please keep Ziva David!!!! Awesome person as well as character.

link 11th July 2013 at 5:33 pm

I feel like NCIS will be missing a very important asset when Cote De Pablo will not return. Don’t know the back story, but I wish that could be a better resolution. The resolution is Ziva is on hiatus and will return.


link 11th July 2013 at 5:36 pm

Ziva is such an amazing and strong asset to the show! It will be hard to replace her. Please, Ziva must stay!!!! Who will keep Tony in line if she’s gone? ;-)


link 11th July 2013 at 5:38 pm

She’s such an amazing woman to me personaly. She’s everything. Please don’t let her go. Please. I beg to you. Please bring her back :'(


link 11th July 2013 at 5:38 pm

I will miss Ziva, but if Cote has something better lined up…You go girl! I will watch you in anything you star in. :) I’m a big fan!


link 11th July 2013 at 5:41 pm

Please don’t let her go. The show will not stand up well without her! Please don’t let her go. You need her in the show! You need to keep the whole family together. Please don’t let her go! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! We need her in the show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cote de Pablo’s Ziva David is fundamental to NCIS …. like Gibbs, Abby, et al …. PLEASE DON’T GO!!


link 11th July 2013 at 5:52 pm

Wait… if you’ve been a die hard fan “since the beginning” (presumably means TWO YEARS before she was ever even ON the show) why would you leave just because she’s gone? If you love the show “for everything” why would you leave because she’s leaving… none of that makes any sense.
Besides, if it’s HER decision to go, why would even start this petition? She wants to move on to other things. She’s been saying that a LOT over the last year. The show will still be great without her. It survived the loss of Kate, it can survive the loss of Ziva. The ENTIRE cast and crew work hard to make this show, let’s try respecting THAT.

Whilst Cote isnt the only member of the cast i enjoy watching in the show, i feel that allowing Cote to leave would ruin the mix. The mix in the show is just right and just wouldnt be the same if any of the cast members left. I feel that if you do allow Cote to leave it will ruin the show !!!!

link 11th July 2013 at 9:08 pm

You have to bring Ziva back! All the actors/actress characters important to the show! Ziva is just as important as Gibbs, Abby, Ducky, McGee, and Leon. Taking away any of these characters destroys the show. When Kate died I cried because that character was killed off. Taking away any of the N.C.I.S characters away destroys the love and attraction.

Please bring “Zeva” back. She is such a talented actress and big part of the show. It won’t be as good without her!! When she replaced the previous actress I loved her from the start. Her character is so witty, strong and smart. A great roll model for girls of all ages. I think the chemistry will die without her. I’m sure I won’t watch it without her because it won’t he as enjoyable! Please. Please bring her back for all the viewers of NCIS.
Thanks Annmarie Lindon

Por favor, não tirem a Ziva. Gostamos muito dela aqui no Brasil também.


link 12th July 2013 at 12:17 am

Please don’t let Cote leave. I love the chemistry that she brings to her character Ziva and may you not forget about “Tiva”? How is this gonna affect Tony as well as everyone else especially Abby, since every major character that has left has been a female lead? At least don’t kill her so she has the opportunity to come back later if she wants.

I absolutely LOVE the actress Cote De Pablo and The Character ZIVA she is my favorite on NCIS the show would be sooooooooooo sad without her I will cry!!! I love the writing with Tony and Ziva SOOOOO much it would devastate me to see her off the show no matter how they get her off! PLEASE don’t do it!!!
p.s. at the end of this season I didn’t really seem to me that was something to happen?

Catherine Young

link 12th July 2013 at 1:58 am

Please do not let her go! Do you realize that you will lose so many fans? Please, think about the long run here, she is one of the biggest, if not the biggest thing to happen to that show in awhile. That is my favorite show, but if the main character leaves, I don’t know how it will be then.

Dennis Moll

link 12th July 2013 at 2:31 am

You CAN’T let her leave. She is the perfect foil for Tony. The show would not be the same without her. Do what you have to do pay what you have to pay but don’t let her go.

Ive been a HUGE NCIS fan since the begining. When Kate was killed by Arri I was upset. Now my man crush Ziva is leaving the show as well. Whats going on with this? Her choice? Upsetting the network? What? The show has been this sucessful because of the cast and chemistry between them. I was always told why kick a running dog in the ass? They are shooting themselves in the foot by getting rid of Cote. Love ya.. You are super sexy.


link 12th July 2013 at 4:16 am

If Cote leaves so do I… done with NCIS!


link 12th July 2013 at 6:33 am

i will miss her she is a great actress that i’ve seen in awhile when she first came onto the show that is when i started to watch it it is sad that she is leaving ihope she comes back i bet the show will lose alot of people who wach it please don’t let her go and if she leaves that she will be welcomed back with open arms she was everything that the show needed

Please guys make sure those who are commenting that you realize you’re only commenting on this site but this isn’t the petition. The link to it is right under where the admin wrote her piece about why we want Cote/Ziva to stay. (I could not have said it better myself, btw, admin. Absolutely try to the core of how devastated I feel by this news and why.) But please make sure you all comment your feelings on the ACTUAL petition.


link 12th July 2013 at 3:11 pm

I think that Ziva is the most engaging female on the show…. the chemistry between her and Tony is so thick and luring…. It shows that opposites do attract and when they do they form a bond no-one can tear apart. She has taught me that no matter how bad things get I would always have someone that would love, protect, and help me.

THE MAJOR QUESTION…..why is de pablo leaving? does anyone know?!!!
she shouldn’t leave ..i think the shows ratings will go down real bad!

Cote de Pablo is a BIG reason why NCIS is starting their 11th season. If the reason for Cote leaving the show is about her salary, and she is not receiving equal pay then WAKE UP CBS. Cote is not only deserves equal pay, she deserves much, much more!! How can you not see that! I’m a HUGE fan of NCIS, or I should say I was until this. Now I’m FURIOUS. If we loose Cote, than NCIS has lost me as a viewer. Watch the show go down hill and down hill fast. I just can’t believe it!!! I will be sure though to follow Cote’s career wherever she goes. Thanks for a job well done Cote. We love ya!


link 14th July 2013 at 7:06 pm

Please don’t let Cote leave she’s been one of the best characters on the show and my inspiration. Bring her back for season 11

@Regina Akins: i agree with what you said. NCIS is incomplete with Ziva. :(

Paige Betterton

link 15th July 2013 at 2:37 pm

Please pay her what she wants. I know the show is not going to make it without her. It won’t be the same and she is the glue that holds those boys together. You will be disappointed in the drop in ratings you will find if you let her go over something as stupid as money. The show will be incomplete without her.


link 15th July 2013 at 5:37 pm

Every time I ask someone if they watch NCIS. The first thing they say is “Is that the show with Cote De Pablo on it.” Ziva has been there for 8 years. There’s not many ways to end a character on the show. And death is a popular choice as with Sasha Alexander. Sasha was there for 2 years and her death was tragic. Imagine Ziva after 8 years. Her and Tony’s love hate relationship will just end after 1-2 episodes. She is one of Ncis’s ladies and will always be one. PLEASE KEEP HER HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


link 17th July 2013 at 11:22 pm

All females across the globe who watch NCIS see Ziva David as someone they admire & look up to, because she isnt fake,she is who she is and knows how to stand up for herself… I myself love & admire Ziva for those traits. Ziva reminds me of my baby sister which I lost to a car wreck in 2001. As Tony himself said out of his own mouth, Ziva’s NOT REPLACEABLE!!!


link 18th July 2013 at 8:11 pm

Please don’t let Ziva and/or Cote leave NCIS. It’s a wonderfully oiled group of people, whose camaraderie among them creates a suspenseful, comedic, family show!!! Please, Cote, please don’t leave. Please.

link 21st July 2013 at 7:17 am

I can’t believe that you would break up the cast that makes NCIS the most watched show on tv to save a few bucks. Ziva is someone that teaches girls that no matter what you get hit with in life, you can get past it and move on. Cote does an awesome job playing Ziva and I don’t see that the show can continue at the level that it has been without her. I love her and she needs to stay. Bring her back!

Cheryl Frisby

link 8th August 2013 at 11:14 pm

Not only has Cote de Pablo developed this character on NCIS for the last eight years, she is also a great role model for women. Personally, I’m tried of CBS killing off the women on this show…Sasha Alexander(Special Agent Caitlin Todd ), Lauren Holly (Director Shepard), Paula Newsome (Jackie Vance), Liza Lapira (Special Agent Michelle Lee). It was a good thing Jamie Lee Curtis got out when she did (she really was running for her life!!!!!) I can guarantee I won’t be watching the show anymore if Ziva is killed off. I also think I’m not the only woman who feels this way. CBS you need to come up with another solution. Keep Cote on the show!!!

link 15th August 2013 at 6:18 am

I can’t understand CBS! The 2nd most watch actress on TV. What’s to understand. CBS understands she is the bond. NCIS could lose Tony he has over grown his charactor (AGED) and still survie, but not Ziva. My husband loves to watch NCIS Ziva is his hero. Not like a sex image, but a daughter, he respects and admires. That says so much, since He thinks TV is a wast of time. EXCEPT FOR NCIS AND 1 OTHER SHOW! But,even more then we love her, she is glue. You can’t live with out Gibs. The shows has prime charactors that are the chemisty that hold it together.
OR is CBS following politicly correct distanceing form Isreal.
The line of bull that you offer her more money. When my husband left over problems with his Co. after 25 yr with they told all his men (over 100) that he had a better offor. BIG LIE! Did you offer her more? 1st it cam out of CBS! 2nd it came from CBS! CBS you r loseing a lot of vewers is it really worth. IMHO d sham


link 27th August 2013 at 1:34 pm

Cote de Pablo (as Ziva David) is NOT, I repeat NOT a replaceable character in NCIS. She is totally irreplaceable. Ziva David has taught teens and young adults throughout the world to remain vigilant in the face of terror and advance through pain and emotional heartache whilst still maintaining a soft side. If this is over money, CBS should consider the loss of profit that is inevitable should she leave.


link 2nd October 2013 at 9:27 pm

I couldn’t be more disappointed with Cote leaving! I just hate it she is just perfect with the whole team!

Jo Ann Wise

link 18th October 2013 at 1:14 am

I agree with every one and feel the same. Cote is irreplaceable, we love her. Pay her what she is worth. She is worth every much as Tony and Gibbs. We won’t be watching any more if she isn’t there. Please, Do the best thing for the viewers and CBS


link 28th December 2013 at 6:00 pm

Ziva David, simply MUST come back to NCIS. She is an essential part of the show, she provides, sexiness, seriousness(aside from GIBBS and the Director) and she
represents an integrated,interracial element,without her the show is just all white AMERICAN ( besides Vance of course).We still have a relationship with Israel and she makes Israel look REAL GOOD. And Denozzo / David is 1,000x better than Luke and Laura

link 5th February 2014 at 3:25 am

I’m done with NCIS! I have bought all 10 seasons and watch them frequently. Gibbs and Ziva are my favorite characters. This NSA girl is unbearable!!! Please bring Ziva back!!! We won’t be watching until she is back at her desk! Those who bless Israel will be blessed and those that curse Israel will be cursed! If you have made your decision, watch out!
