Pauley Perrette Returning To NCIS: Murray, Weatherly Still Negotiating

Pauley Perrette will be back in the lab sipping “Caf-Pow” for NCIS’ eighth season.

The 41-year-old bombshell, who plays forensic scientist Abbey Sciuto in television’s most watched scripted show, has signed a multi-year contract to remain part of the NCIS team.

She joins Rocky Carroll (Leon Vance) and David McCallum (Dr. Ducky Mallard) as actors who have recently inked new deals.

Mark Harmon (Leroy Jethro Gibbs) and the scrumptious Cote de Pablo (Ziva David) are already under contract.

As of right now, the only two cast members without a contract for next season are Sean Murray and Michael Weatherly.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the actors who play Special Agents Timothy McGee and Tony DiNozzo, respectively, are still in negotiations. According to Land of Punt sources, their lack of contracts is a mere formality.

Perrette, along with Harmon, Weatherly, and McCallum, has been with the show since its inception.

NCIS’ spinoff, NCIS: Los Angeles was renewed for a second season by CBS way back in January.
