  • Emily Wickersham hasn't even made her debut on NCIS yet and she's already gotten a promotion.
    Originally cast in a multi-episode recurring role, Wickersham - whom fans have assumed is the replacement for Cote De Pablo's departed Ziva David - has been upped to a series regular, CBS announced Monday.
    NCIS boss on Ziva's exit, what's next for Tony and the team
    She'll play Eleanor "Ellie" Bishop, an NSA analyst who specializes in international threat assessment and global preparation. Her character will be introduced in the Nov. 19 episode, when Bishop is brought in to assist with the investigation after Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and co. learn that the Secretary of the Navy was bugged during a confidential briefing.
    "Emily Wickersham's Ellie Bishop is proving to perfectly complement the NCIS team," showrunner Gary Glasberg said in a statement. "Her energy and enthusiasm is contagious. Great things are planned for Bishop and we couldn't be more thrilled to have her on board."
    Are you looking forward to meeting Bishop?
    NCIS airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on CBS.
