Winter TV Preview: NCIS

Returns Tuesday January 8 at 8/7c

Since her introduction in season three, Coté de Pablo has made quite an impression as Ziva David on CBS’ police procedural NCIS. From her laugh-inducing issues with American idioms to her flirty relationship with Senior Special Agent Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly), the Chilean-born actress’ portrayal has won her legions of fans. And she’ll be getting more screen time this winter. "Ziva will reconnect with her dad (Mossad Director Eli David / played by Michael Nouri)," showrunner Gary Glasberg tells TV Line. His arrival will lead to "a big sort of turn for Ziva that will happen in the latter part of the season," one that "affects her, affects her relationship with Tony and adds a whole other layer to the puzzle."
