Sasha Alexander Reunites With Dinozzo & Ziva Actors Ahead Of Their NCIS Spinoff In New Photos


Ahead of their NCIS spinoff, Michael Weatherly and Cote de Pablo reunite with an original franchise actor, Sasha Alexander. After more than two decades on the air, NCIS is showing no signs of slowing down. Aside from the controversial cancellation of NCIS: Hawai’i, the universe as a whole is still going strong, with a couple of spinoffs on the way. That includes a reunion project with Michael Weatherly and Cote de Pablo as they reprise their roles as Tony DiNozzo and Ziva David and NCIS: Tony & Ziva offshoot, which will stream on Paramount+ instead of airing on CBS.

Before their small screen return, however, Weatherly and de Pablo host an NCIS rewatch podcast, which recently guest-starred Alexander. Check out their adorable reunion images from Alexander’s Instagram below:

The photos were taken during Alexander’s recent appearance on the newly-launched NCIS rewatch podcast. Titled Off Duty: An NCIS Rewatch on Spotify, the new endeavor sees Weatherly and de Pablo talk to various people who were once or are still involved in the franchise.

Can Alexander’s Kate Todd Still Appear In The NCIS Universe?

Todd Was Killed By Ziva David’s Half-Brother

It has been almost two decades since Kate Todd was unexpectedly killed in the NCIS season 2 finale. The events of the CBS police procedural were kicked off by her arrival at the agency. She was expected to stay with the Major Case Response Team for a while, so it was truly shocking when she was brutally murdered. Her death was recently re-examined during NCIS’ 1000th episode. Despite hopes that Alexander would return to film new scenes despite her character’s death, the show only used archival footage. That said, it doesn’t mean that a comeback is off the table.


NCIS has already set a precedent in terms of bringing her back after Kate’s death.

NCIS has already set a precedent in terms of bringing her back after Kate’s death. On the heels of Ari’s brutal murder of her 19 years ago, Alexander returned for the first two episodes of season 3 as the team grappled with the unexpected loss of her. Instead of flashbacks, her scenes were projections of her. This was major proof of her drama-less exit from the police procedural, which hasn’t always been the case in terms of these long-running shows. Beyond that, Alexander can reprise Kate as a hallucination in case NCIS season 22 attempts to bring her back.

Besides reprising Kate in the show, NCIS can also tap Alexander to be involved in other ways. For starters, she could helm one of the upcoming episodes of NCIS: Tony & Ziva. Alexander previously directed an episode of Weatherly’s Bull, and she clearly has a great relationship with de Pablo, so it shouldn’t be an issue to pull this off.
