Pauley Perrette: What the Former NCIS Star Is Doing Now

Pauley Perrette shattered hearts when she announced that she would be leaving NCIS. Thankfully, fans now have something to look forward to with the newest reports about the actress.


Late 2018, Pauley Perrette ended her 15-year run as Abby Sciuto on the famous American crime series. It was a devastating update for the NCIS’ massive fan following back then as many had become attached to smart and capable Abby.


While they will continue to miss Abby on the show, they will now be able to watch the actress star in another CBS series. Titled “Broke,” the show will revolve around Miguel, a character played by famous “Jane the Virgin” star, Jaime Camil. According to The Wrap, he is a “wealthy trust fund baby” whose father suddenly cuts off his finances.

The show promises to be so much fun with Camil’s character, Miguel resorting, to living with Jackie, played by Perrette, who is his wife’s “estranged” sister. The unsettling move lets the two women, despite their low finances, bond once again as feisty Jackie realizes just how much she loves her sister.


Perrette’s Jackie manages a bar and is described as “feisty, not easily cowed, sometimes hot-headed, the kind of woman who knows her way around a toolbox and an acetylene torch.” It will be rather thrilling to watch her melt as she spends time with her “snobby rich” sister and husband even growing to appreciate their presence in her life.

Alex Herschlag writes the show, and the executive producers include “Jane” creator Jennie Snyder Urman, Jaime Camil, Joanna Klein of Urman’s Sutton Street banner, Ben Silverman of Propagate Content and a few others. With a long of A-listers like these, the show promises to be an excellent one.


Playing Jackie seems to be just the right thing for Perrette. Following her longtime run playing tough and smart Abby, playing Jackie should come quickly to the beautiful actress. Perrette's lead role in “Broke” is her very first recurring TV job since she left NCIS in October 2018.

At the time, her somewhat unexpected departure became controversial after she disclosed that she raised a "workplace concern" while on the show.


To douse the rising tensions amongst netizens, Perrette came forward to defend CBS. Via Twitter, she said:

“I want to thank my studio and network CBS. They have always been so good to me and always had my back."

Her new Jackie role is a more than welcome update which has fans waiting with bated breaths for it to premiere.
