Cote de Pablo and Michael Weatherly return to the NCIS-verse with new spinoff

The NCIS franchise is expanding once again - with some very familiar faces from the past.

Cote de Pablo and Michael Weatherly are set to star in an untitled spin-off of the series, set in Paris, with their roles as Ziva David and Tony DiNozzo, respectively.

The order for the series comes after Weatherly returned to the flagship CBS series last week when NCIS paid tribute to David McCallum.



De Pablo left NCIS in 2013 and Weatherly left two years later. In the series' story, Tony left the service to raise his and Ziva's daughter after her supposed death. When she was discovered to be alive years later (de Pablo made several cameo appearances in season 17), she completed one final mission and was reunited with Tony and their daughter in Paris.

The new series will pick up from there. Per the show’s logline, “When Tony’s security company is attacked, they must go on the run across Europe, try to figure out who is after them and maybe even learn to trust each other again so that they can finally have their unconventional happily ever after.”

“We’ve been talking about this story for many years, and now with John McNamara at the helm, we are ready,” Weatherly and de Pablo said in a statement. “The world of Tony and Ziva (and daughter Tali) promises to be an action-packed roller coaster fueled by love, danger, tears and laughter. We also want to acknowledge and thank the fans from around the world who supported the ‘TIVA’ movement for years. To this day, they say hello in grocery stores and on the street to tell us how much these characters mean to them and ask what Tony and Ziva are up to now. This is for you.”

As with all shows in the NCIS franchise, the spinoff will be produced by CBS Studios. John McNamara wrote the premiere episode and will serve as showrunner, executive producing with the two stars, Laurie Lieser, Christina Strain and Shelley Meals.

“I’m incredibly excited to step into the NCIS universe with Cote and Michael and thrilled to explore it from a few new angles,” said McNamara. “Given that the franchise is such a global sensation, I think it’s phenomenal that CBS Studios and Paramount+ have given us the green light to shoot in Europe. As to the title of this series, if I told you what it is, I’d be violating the Espionage Act.”

Paramount+'s untitled series will be the first NCIS series to air on streaming. The original series is in its 21st season on CBS, where it transitions into NCIS: Hawaii on Monday nights. NCIS: Los Angeles and NCIS: New Orleans have both had long lives on CBS, and the series' first international edition, NCIS: Sydney, premiered in Australia and the US last fall. The five series have aired a combined 993 episodes to date.
