Pauley Perrette may return to CBS next season. The NCIS actress has taken a role in the network's comedy pilot Broke, opposite Jane the Virgin's Jaime Camil, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Perrette left NCIS in 2017 after 15 years playing the character Abby Sciuto on the procedural drama. She revealed last spring that she left the show after suffering "multiple physical assaults." At the time of her exit, CBS Studios said that Perrette had approached them with a "workplace problem" that they helped her resolve. The production company is also behind this new comedy, which is executive-produced by Jane creator Jennie Snyder Urman.
