Many fans do not want to see the actress leave the show. In turn, some have been signing a petition to keep her character around. The petition was created by an Aussie fan named Tegan Kain and is titled 'CBS Television Studios: Bring Cote de Pablo back to NCIS!' Kain writes:

Ziva is a character that has inspired many girls and women to become the people they are today: to not give up through hardship, fight for their own happiness and find your family. She has taught values such as strength, resilience and courage. I know she has been a huge role model to me personally and it absolutely devastates me to see her character written off like this after such a long time.
