Cote de Pablo‘s character of Ziva David returns in the NCIS Season 17 premiere “Out of the Darkness,” picking up where last season’s finale cliffhanger left off. CBS has released a trailer to promote the episode, which airs on September 24, which may offer some hints on why Ziva has come back. First, here’s how CBS describes it:
Ziva surprises Gibbs with a cryptic warning, prompting him to question why she remained underground for years while being presumed dead by family and friends, and what led to her return, on the 17th season premiere of NCIS, Tuesday, Sept. 24 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
You can see the trailer below; underneath, we have some official photos that CBS has released to promote the episode. The trailer is full of a lot of Ziva, and it shows off how some characters are reacting to her return. Where has Ziva been all this time? Perhaps we will get some answers within.
