It's been six years since Cote de Pablo left the long-running CBS' series NCIS. Loyal fans still miss her existence as Special Agent Ziva David, who pulls DiNozzo's leg and mocks Tony with McGee.

Cote de Pablo left NCIS because she felt the scripts failed to treat her character in a respectful manner. However, Ziva David's on-screen death was truly heart-breaking.

For the past six years, the CBS network tried to make fans believe in an official death of Special Agent Ziva David. But, it's all in the past! Cote de Pablo is returning to NCIS.

It's been confirmed that Zida David is alive and will be starring in season 17. In a teaser, the agent says to Gibbs:

Hello, Gibbs. No time for pleasantries — you're in danger. Well, aren't you going to say something? 

Actually, this return wasn't even written in scripts, so it's been a surprise for everyone. The executive producers told, "it's just a beginning."

We are thrilled to share that Cote de Pablo will guest star in the NCIS season 17 premiere this fall as Ziva's warning to Gibbs unfolds.

Fans were exceptionally delighted. See their reactions below!

Life would be really wonderful if Michael Weatherly comes back as well so DiNozzo and David will reunite and bring their on-screen daughter up.
