Pauley Perrette’s fans apparently want every possible interaction with her that they can get before she signs off for good from “NCIS.”

The actress, who recently announced that the CBS procedural’s currently airing 15th season will be her last, did not tweet at all during this week’s new episode, and some viewers took to Twitter to express their disappointment. Perrette, a typically frequent Twitter user, had tweeted in the evening on Oct. 16 but posted nothing on Oct. 17, when the episode aired.

“Woke up looking forward to all my @PauleyP tweets from last night’s #NCIS but there aren’t any,” one fan wrote.

Fret not, “NCIS” fanatics: Perrette’s social media absence proved to be short-lived, and she tweeted on the evening of Oct. 18 to divulge her whereabouts.

“Hey! Just been on set a lot! Didn’t even get to see our last night’s #NCIS until like 11pm!!!” the actress wrote.

Perrette, who has played Forensic Specialist Abby Sciuto since the show’s Sept. 2003 premiere, broke the news earlier this month that she is leaving at the end of Season 15.

Tuesday’s episode introduced new series regular Maria Bello as Jack Sloane, who got to know Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and the team.

Perrette’s message is below.

“NCIS” airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on CBS.
