Pauley Perrette Signs New Contract, Returning to NCIS

by 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

McGee: All right. Well you should probably know that Abby and I used to date?
Bishop: Ew. Like, each other?
McGee: Yeah.
Bishop: Wait - isn't that a violation of rule 12, never date a....
McGee: It was a long time ago. After we'd broken up, one night I went to her lab. Found a scribbled piece paper; a list. Potential boyfriends had to fulfill certain conditions by a pre-arranged date or else, goodbye.
Bishop: Such as.
McGee: Things started off relatively normal: opening the door for her, flowers, putting the seat down. Then around number 8, it gets uh...
Bishop: What?
McGee: Does she know you have these?
Bishop: Does she know you have these?
McGee: Yeah she wasn't happy when she found out.
Bishop: These are all very specific.
McGee: Yeah.
Bishop: These ideas apply to you?
McGee: No those rules weren't in place when we were together. At least I don't think so.
Bishop: What's with the two month cutoff? Abby's sabotaging herself. I've seen stuff like this before. We have to talk to her.

McGee: You know something I don't? Working tonight and tomorrow night?
Tony: No, Tim. It's just that Zoe's parents are in town and they want to have dinner. I'm not ready for that.
Abby: So you deceived her.
Tony: I was put on the spot. I was not prepared.
McGee: Whoa. Hey. What are you afraid of?
Tony: I don't know.
Abby: They're probably really nice.
Tony: I'm sure they are. I've just never had dinner with the parents of a woman I'm seriously involved with.
McGee: That's not true. What about Jon Benois?
Tony: No, technically that wasn't me because I was undercover as Tony DiNardo, professor of film studies. I wasn't myself back then. Meeting the parents for dinner could trigger a whole chain of events.
Abby: It's just dinner, Tony.
Tony: You have dinner yet with Ranger Burt's parents? I didn't think so. Then put down the gavel, take off the robe and stop judging, both of you.
Abby: Okay.
