Pauley Perrette Signs New Contract, Returning to NCIS

at . Comments

Any fears that the NCIS gang may be disbanding after seven seasons together are slowly being assuaged. Late last week, Pauley Perrette signed a new contract to stay with the show.

The NCIS cast has been embroiled in an ongoing re-negotiation saga, as many stars' deals were set to expire after the just-completed Season 7. Now, only two remain unsigned.

With the news that Pauley Perrette signed a new, multi-year contract to keep her on NCIS for the foreseeable future, Michael Weatherly and Sean Murray are the only holdouts.

What Abby wants, Abby gets ... in this case, a new contract!

Perrette, Rocky Carroll, and David McCallum reached new contracts to return in recent months, whereas Mark Harmon and Cote de Pablo already had deals in place for next season.

As for Weatherly and Murray, they remain at the bargaining table, though they've indicated no real desire to leave, and EW cites a source saying that "both are close re-signing."

Cross your fingers that they do ...

I hope they both get a contract they are ok with! I can't imagine this show without this group of people.

Give Sean Murray and Michael Weatherly what they want. The show cannot survive without them. The show now has a perfect team, and it does not need to be disbanded. I just wish we could bring back Lauren Holly.

NCIS Quotes

[voiceover] Anyone can achieve their fullest potential, who we are might be predetermined, but the path we follow is always of our own choosing. We should never allow our fears or the expectations of others to set the frontiers of our destiny. Your destiny can't be changed but, it can be challenged. Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one.
