Diane Neal Returning to NCIS This Fall

at . Comments

Diane Neal, who plays U.S. Coast Guard investigator Abigail Borin on NCIS, from time to time, will be playing her at least one more time this coming year. TV Line confirmed she will return in Season 10.

The Law & Order: SVU veteran, who can also be seen this summer on USA's Suits, first appeared in Season 7 of the CBS procedural as Leroy Jethro Gibbs' redheaded CGIS counterpart.

She's made several appearances since.

Gibbs, Borin and Abby

Neal's last visit came early in NCIS Season 9, when she assisted on a case - and in the team's hunt for a perfect match for Gibbs (the team and more than a few fans feel Borin herself would qualify).

“It is the most fun place to work,” Neal said of the show, listing Pauley Perrette, Cote de Pablo and Michael Weatherly as friends and calling leading man Mark Harmon “the nicest man in TV."

Also, "I get to have a gun! It’s also really fun because I play the female Mark Harmon.”

Hard to argue with that logic - and we're glad she'll do it again before long.
