Ziva is out. Her successor is in.
While NCIS fans are still reeling from the shocking news that Cote de Pablo won't return, the show is prepping to introduce a new character in Bishop.
The twentysomething newcomer is being described as "bright, educated, athletic, attractive, fresh-faced, focused and somewhat socially awkward."
"She has a mysterious mixture of analytic brilliance, fierce determination and idealism. She's traveled extensively, but only feels comfortable at home."
Viewers will most likely meet Bishop later in NCIS Season 11, most likely January or February, after the show gives de Pablo's character, Ziva, a proper goodbye.
The fan favorite will be written out of TV's top-rated series immediately when it returns for its 11th season premiere Tuesday, September 24 on CBS.
