“NCIS” fans have a lot to say after Pauley Perrette’s recent hint about the upcoming episode.

Perrette, who is exiting the show at the end of Season 15, tweeted on Monday that this week’s installment of the popular CBS procedural is not to be missed.

“Excited about tomorrow’s new #NCIS !!!” the actress wrote. “It’s absolutely a ‘Do Not Miss It’ episode!!!!”

Given that fans still have not been given any inkling as to how “NCIS” will write out Perrette’s character, forensic scientist Abby Sciuto, many devotees responded to the actress’ tweet with pleas that she rethink her decision to exit the series.

“Pauley Perrette, please, please, please, don’t leave NCIS, it won’t be the [same] without you,” one fan replied. “Perhaps I won’t see ‘NCIS’ again. You are needed there. Reconsider your exit. We all love you.”

“I am so sad you are leaving,” another viewer wrote. “It’s like breaking up with an old friend.”

A third supporter tweeted, “Please don’t go!”

Perrette announced in September that the show’s currently airing season will be her last, but she has played it coy regarding her reason for leaving. She tweeted last week about “lies” that she said had been spreading about what is motivating her to walk away.

An array of tweets are below.



“NCIS” airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on CBS.
