Pauley Perrette, who played Abby on “NCIS” for 15 seasons, left the CBS drama in 2018. What shows have Perrette starred in since leaving?

She starred in “Broke,” a CBS sitcom where she played Jackie Dixon, a single mom supporting her son by working as a bartender. Sadly for Perrette and the other show’s stars, the network canceled “Broke” after one season.

Perrette, though, has appeared in other TV series before her stint on “NCIS.” They include “Moloney,” “Murder One,” “Early Edition,” “Frasier,” “The Drew Carey Show,” “Time of Your Life,” “Dawson’s Creek,” and “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.”

Perrette also appeared in two episodes of the “NCIS” spinoff “NCIS: New Orleans” as well as in the “Los Angeles” offshoot of the original show.

‘NCIS’ Finishes 18th Season With Lots Of Questions Awaiting Answers

Speaking of “NCIS,” the show finished up its 18th season with a lot of unanswered questions.

Some NSA files were leaked. Who did it? Bishop and Torres kissed (finally). What does it mean?

About those National Security Agency files, we turn to Timothy McGee. McGee, played by Sean Murray, found them in a bag of guns at an abandoned house. Who planted the files? Turns out that Bishop, played by the now-departed Emily Wickersham, did. She tried to cover her trail by saying Odette, played by Elayn Taylor, planted the files. Um, no. Bishop is headed to work undercover, a sweet reason to give for Wickersham leaving.

“NCIS” fans know the heat’s been rising between Bishop and Torres, played by Wilmer Valderrama. People wanted to know when something would happen between them. With Bishop out of the picture, what does that kiss mean? Will we have Bishop make some type of return down the road?

By the way, those “NCIS” fans are curious about Gibbs’ boat blowing up. Gibbs, played by Mark Harmon, managed to swim away after his “Rule 91” sailboat went up in flames. Again, where are the answers for this happening? “NCIS” has a lot of explaining to do, but it’ll have to wait until its 19th season comes around in the fall.

The season finale did quite well last Tuesday night.

“NCIS” reached 8.5 million viewers in the ratings, easily beating any other shows. By now, this has become pretty standard fare as the crime drama usually does well in the Nielsen numbers.
