NCIS producers look back on Pauley Perrette's exit, candidly explaining why the Abby actor left the long-running procedural. In the role of Abby Sciuto, Perrette has been with NCIS before it was even a show. She appeared in two episodes of JAG, which served as a backdoor pilot for what would eventually become the spinoff NCIS, remaining a main cast member from its debut in 2003 until her surprise exit in 2018 and remains one of the franchise's most popular characters.
