EDIT: I already send one book to CBS and everybody else but keep on writing your messages and send us your e-mails, posts and other creative work and we will make another book and mail it to CBS to let them know that we still want Cote back on NCIS and let them know how we feel about her. If you would like to see a pdf version of what was sent, check it out here!

After the surprising and shocking news that Cote won’t return as a series regular in season 11 on NCIS, we think it’s time to show your support for Cote!

We created a new fan-project where people can submit their letters, fan-art drawings etc. and we will print all of your submissions and send them to Cote and CBS to let them know that we love Cote and her work on NCIS and that she’s a vital part of the show.

Send your ideas and letters to the following e-mail address: support-project@cote-de-pablo.net

We want to print the book pretty soon so you’ve got about a week to get your entries in. Printing all your work will take some time and we’re sorry that the deadline is so soon but if we want to change something and let them know that we care, we believe it’s vital to submit the letters as soon as possible.
We will also include all the doodles we got so far ( if you want to add yours to the gallery click here), all the posts we got for the failed contract negotiations this year and your submissions we got back in 2011 when Cote’s contract was running out and we didn’t know if she would resign.

If you want to send Cote and the producers a letter on your own here are the addresses:

Cote de Pablo
c/o NCIS
26030 Avenue Hall
Box 4
Valencia, CA 91355

CBS Headquarters
51 W. 52nd Street
New York, NY 10019-6188
1-212-975-4321

And then there’s an email address for Nina Tassler, CBS’s Executive Vice President, because she was at the party for the 200th episode of NCIS and seems to have more of a connection to the show: Nina.Tassler@CBS.Com

Let them all know why we love Cote and/or Ziva and what an impact they have on your life. I know some people think that it’s a waste of time but I don’t think so because we will let them know that we care and that we won’t stand on the side-line. So get creative and submit your mail to support-project@cote-de-pablo.net

BUT PLEASE: Don’t send any hate-mail and insult people. That’s more than counterproductive and will result in the exact opposite. So please, show them your love!

Thanks.

    Dear Cote, or Ziva, as best I have to call you, I started watching NCIS since the first series and a bit 'at a time you have become like family to me, says Abby are my Musketeers, when he died, Mike c' I was also embraced at the elevator with four of you …. I shared with you joy, sorrow, anger.

    I heard about “your” decision to leave the series NCIS, so there is a choice of production, but “your”, certainly will not be these few lines (or the thousands of other letters that you will receive) to change your mind, but I'd like you at least understand what it means to me, but I think for many other NCIS.

    For us normal people, we have a life where the trials are much more satisfactions, always taken from 1000 issues, children, work, home, health, money, one of the few good things we have left is to dream and to live with you your adventures, where you manage to make justice triumph, where friends are loyal and faithful, where there …is always the irony even before the bad things in life.

    I am no longer a little girl are a forty year old, always running: elderly and sick parents, husband, young son, and volunteer work, but when there is no NCIS for anyone, for the duration of the episode exist only you, I do not miss a beat, and often more than once I see the same scene through your stories make me live what I will never do and dream ….

    You can not even imagine what it means for us fans your story with Tony, we wrote hundreds of short stories fiction to get to where the authors have never wanted to get, we put video on you tube with our favorite scenes in eight years there has escaped a look, a caress, a word …… and so now all of a sudden you take from us the most beautiful thing that we can have hope …. that one day Tony and Ziva to get together.

    In the words of Tony Ziva there is no other, it would be easier to find another Michael Jackson, and raise the world to get you back, do not give us this disappointment we already have so many every day from life, think you're making the biggest mistake of your life! We have followed, loved and forgiven also not betray us, stay for us.

    Semper Fidelis

    Dear Maria Giulia, Your letter to Cote made me cry! I feel so much the same way that you do. I truly understand! 🙂

    I remain hopeful that the producers / showrunners will offer Ms. de Pablo whatever is needed, to keep her on the show. Because, she deserves to be paid as well as everyone else, and I will miss the character of Ziva David so greatly!

    Good wishes to Ms. de Pablo, and to all her fans, who want to keep seeing her beautiful face on NCIS each week!

    #SaveCote!

    Kindest regards,

    When I learned that Cote leave NCIS, it was like losing the ground, it was like losing the air, I can’t explain, it was a horrible feeling, escapes all understanding. In these years we’ve been following the series, I realized slowly how each character was important to me, each of them became special, but Ziva stood out, she’s a exceptional actress, the way she captivated me was extremely inexplicable . And now, to know that Ziva will leave NCIS, my heart feel increasingly tight. I can’t understand why that, I had so much hope that she continued to make me laugh. I loved seeing her in scenes with Tony, were beautiful moments, and funny. No character struck me as much as you, I really can’t believe what is happening, I can’t imagine how the series will be going forward without his presence. I have a immense affection for Cote, I learned to love it, and I’ll not get used to their absence, it is as if something missing. I’m sure not only me, but all fans of Cote feel very lack thereof. NCIS will never be the same without you. I love you, I need you to stay, not for myself, but for all his fans. Forgive me if I missed a word, I’m Brazilian, so my English isn’t very good. I couldn’t say everything I really wish you knew, but I think the principal has already been said. Love you with all my strength, thank you for all the joy you gave me during these years, you’re awesome, and I’ll always be your fan, wherever you are, wherever you go, you will always have the me, even distantly. You’re always in my thoughts and in my heart. Always love you. Thanks for everything.

    It is a great sorrow to have any lead and much loved character leave a show. Cote is a rock in her role as Ziva. At some point reality will rear it’s ugly head and the entire NCIS show and cast will unfortunately be gone…hopefully not for a long time though.

    Cote is a gifted actress and singer so I doubt she will be out of work for long. She may want to have a child and raise a family. Working a series can be difficult for any woman trying to plan a pregnancy around a shooting schedule.

    Hopefully the “powers that be” at CBS will find a credible actress/agent to become part of the team in the NCIS squad room. I don’t want to say replaced because Cote/Ziva cannot be replaced. The new agent will assume Ziva’s desk and with time hopefully will become a character we can learn to love and trust just as we did with Cote/Ziva.

    In closing, I just hope that when the series picks up in September,there has been 4 months that have passed since the agents turned in their badges into Vance, perhaps Ziva fell in love. Her character is to well loved and to strong to have her meet with a fatality, as with what happened with Kate and Jenny. I just hope the show’s writers and producers have enough respect for the character than killing her off

    Dear All,

    I visited Change.org just now (9:20pm EDT), and the petition for Cote de Pablo has reached over 10,000 signatures!

    If you haven’t already, you can see the petition at:
    http://www.change.org/en-AU/petitions/cbs-television-studios-bring-cote-de-pablo-back-to-ncis

    I hope that this tremendous show of support means a lot to both Ms. de Pablo, and all of the people at NCIS / CBS. Maybe it’s not too late to keep her on the show for the full season?? (I will keep hoping!)

    Kindest regards,

    NCIS non è solo Gibbs, ma anche Tony e Ziva hanno contribuito notevolmente al successo del programma.
    Ziva David fa parte ormai della loro famiglia e non è sostituibile, perchè unica.

Stop talking about it and help Ms. de Pablo now! Show real support by sending in the letters and signing the petitions. If they still don’t bring her back then we boycott the CBS network. There is strength in numbers.

    Dear Ziva, please don’t go, producers please I will make sure more DVD and t shirts and hats are sold so you can give her what ever contract she wants. If you don’t then the show will perish not just in USA but around the world as well. Please keep Ziva.

    I have never missed an episode of this show but if she leaves my life won’t be the same. Please please please keep her.

    We will all miss Cote as the unbelievable Ziva. She is a stunningly beautiful woman and very talented. My husband and I are great NCIS fans and she will be missed from the show. We only wish she would have stayed on because Ziva’s mispronunciation of some of our colloquialisms gave the show a light side in a show that at times is exceedingly gruesome. She will be missed very much.

    it is a very sad day after learning Ziva is leaving NCIS! she has been such a great part of the team. not to take away from the other actors, but Cote’s protrayal of Ziva has brought such a intense character to the show that will never be replaced! i have always said if i could be anyone else it would be Ziva. she gives women the feeling of strength that most do not have in the real world. i know nothing will change her mind about leaving, but one can only hope she will leave the door open to return. i dont think the show will last long after this departure. these actors just work off each other so well. it is indeed a very sad day!

    Dear Cote,
    My name is Stephanie.I heard about your decision on not returning to NCIS in season 11.I have seen every episode from the very first to the last of season 10.When I heard your were appearing on the show my grandma and I were wondering what the character was going to be like.I think you are the best ever and I will miss seeing your beautiful smile and awsome fierceness.The show will not be the smae without you.I never met an actress I look upi to and want to be like in my life and when I heard that us fans were saying goodbye to your character I thought “well that sucks she’s so cool”.Then that night and since then I have been having dreams of meeting you and getting an autograph picture of you while I even got to get a picture with you and cried.Hope all is very well and I will miss you on the show.
    Sincerly Your Fan,

    Cote you can not believe the shock in my heart about you leaving. I started watching NCIS at the very beginning and was immediately drawn into it with the perfect cast. The scripts are always so well written and executed by the cast. I and my husband are DEVOTED fans of NCIS. We have seen every episode many times and still will not change the channel. Each member of the team brings hope,joy, happiness and sadness sometimes. When Kate left suddenly, it was a total shock! Then when Cote aka Ziva was introduced into the show, it was an immediate YES, she is PERFECT for the cast. Her wit, humor and beauty, not to mention sex appeal, is so apparent that the show will NEVER be the same again without you.

    Please don’t get me wrong, every charater is perfect, I can’t choose a favorite over anyone else when each person is so unique with the writers doing their job so well.

    I do wish you would reconsider leaving the show. CBS needs to keep each cast member as is.
    I do understand if family is your reason, if not,
    CBS needs to make you an offer worthy of your style.

    I have laughed and cried over so many shows,
    that NCIS and this cast can NEVER be replaced.

    When a show that has so many devoted fans, I can’t imagine that you or anyone else would want to leave. The stories that NCIS has done teach us
    so much and Gibbs devotion to the Marines is best. My husband is a Vietnam Veteran and it does his heart pride at every Semper FI. Tony’s street sense, McGee’s tech. knowledge, Ziva’s toughness and playful personally. Abby is the BEST in forensics and style always. Ducky does a spot on job as a medical examinater, always very thorough and with his own style. Palmer is always learning from him as we do about a crime. If any person is replaced the show would NOT have the same meaning.
    Now, as for Gibbs, he IS the leader and his values are an inspiration to us. Family, as Gibbs says, is what this show means to us. Please don’t change a thing and give Everyone a well deserved pay raise! I mean it, the writers do a great job of writing and the actors execute it so well.

    I sincerely hope that ‘nothing’ changes for as long as everyone is happy, we will be also.

    Signed, Hopeful…

    I have recently found out that she is no longer going to be on NCIS. I am SO upset! She is (apart from Gibbs)part of the fabric that keeps them together. I wish she weren’t leaving! She’s so beautiful, and kind in her own way, and she.. she’s part of the NCIS family. This was the family tree:

    Ducky–brother–Gibbs–wife–Jenny
    \ /
    Abby Tony McGee Ziva Kate

    Palmer doesn’t really fit in, but otherwise, everyone would love and miss Ziva. I love seeing her, because she’s just wonderful, and she provides some originality other than Abby. She’s cute and smart, and everyone adores her. I sure hope she doesn’t die. That would be terrible. Abby would have a mental breakdown and curl up and sit in a ball for days (theoreticallly). Ziva’s brave, good in bad situations, sexy, sincere, everything you would ever want in anyone and more. That’s why the people love her. Gibbs thinks of her as a child. “You’re never lonely when you have kids” She means so much to Gibbs. He favors her, but without going overboard. She means so much to Abby. She’s her best friend, and is always there for her, even if it’s not needed. She means a lot to Tony, because she is so much more to him than just a one-night stand. She’s untouchable…. or so he thinks. Ducky loves her, he would miss her so much. McGee is like a brother to her. She would be missed so much. I hope she doesn’t leave forever.

    What would be great was if she and Tony got in a relationship and because of rule #12 she could no longer stay in that unit. Cote could still make appearances sometimes, like if they married or if she came and visited one day or if she got pregnant. 🙂 I really think she shouldn’t leave. If Abby or Gibbs leaves, that’s it for me for NCIS. Totally it.

    It is said “THINGS” can be replaced, however this is not true of people and that is what you mean and have meant to so many of us who enjoy your ability to have brought alive a character we have all grown to love. Surely those of us on the outside do not know how or why you came to your decision, what ever it is or was I wish the best for you always and hope to see you again if not in this role then some other of your choosing. You will be missed but know you will always be loved, QueeniesPlace!!!
