Michael Weatherly and Cote de Pablo are bringing back their iconic characters in a new spinoff aptly titled, NCIS: Tony & Ziva.

The series was announced by Paramount+ in February 2024, with confirmation that they would be bringing back Weatherly and de Pablo. Weatherly starred on the military drama as Tony DiNozzo from seasons 1 to 13, while de Pablo joined the cast as Ziva David in season 3 and departed in season 11.

On NCIS, Ziva was presumed to be dead following de Pablo’s season 11 exit. Two seasons later, Tony decided to resign from the agency to focus on raising the pair’s daughter, Tali. However, in season 16, it was revealed that Ziva was alive and de Pablo reprised her role. After coming back from the dead, both de Pablo and Weatherly have returned to NCIS for brief appearances.

“We’ve been talking about this story for many years, and now with [executive producer] John McNamara at the helm, we are ready,” the duo said in a February statement about their new adventure. “The world of Tony and Ziva (and daughter Tali) promises to be an action-packed roller coaster fueled by love, danger, tears and laughter.”
