NCIS to Serve Up Major Abby Storyline

at . Comments

NCIS fans can look forward to some McGee family history this season, as well as the return of Robert Wagner and Ralph Waite as the fathers of Gibbs and DiNozzo, respectively. But what about the much-anticipated Abby story we've heard whispers about?

Given that Pauley Perrette was recently named the most popular star in all of primetime, it's no surprise longtime fans have been excited for this for some time.

Well, it turns out we won't be waiting much longer.

Abby in Action

Executive producer Gary Glasberg tells TV Guide:

"We're going to actually get into a story line that's going to reveal something about Abby's past and her family that people aren't going to see coming. It's a revelation that she makes on her part... and it's going to tee up a mini-arc."

Any theories about what that might entail?

Yes! Its about time Abby got a bit more back story :)


I"m glad Abby is getting a good episode but I'm also very glad to see McGee get some. He hasn't had a really great episode in a couple of years and it was starting to hack me off. I like 'em all but I was beginning to feel like even Palmer was getting more story than McGee! He's turned into a seasoned agent and they should use him for something more than what any good computer person could do for them. It's high time we got to find out more about Abby and McGee's family tree!!!


I can't wait! I love Abby! I love NCIS!!


should be a good one


Great love Abby happy she gets an episode it looks like everyone gets an episode this year. we get McGee's grandmother, Ziva's mother, see more of Gibbs father, and we see Tony SR work with Tony again.


More Daddy Gibbs says ... "fantastic"!!


As long as Ziva on the show that not going to happen

Uncle jackass

Not that I mind more Gibbs or Senior character stories but the other characters need some serious back story.


I always though Mandy Patinkin should play either her dad or Uncle


YAH!ABBY This should be really good because Abby is fantastic on NCIS. She should have more scenes with the Team. Am so looking forward to this - and of course the Dads and the Grandma for Timmy. Sounds like a nice year for Season 9.

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.

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.
