NCIS Season 12 is expected to begin filming in July, which means fans could get more spoilers in the next couple of weeks. Meanwhile, Emily Wickersham recently shared her insights on possibly having a scene with Cote de Pablo's Ziva David.

"We have to ask Gary [Glasberg] about that," Emily told Digital Spy, when she was asked about the possibility of Cote de Pablo returning to NCIS as Ziva David. Asked whether she would be fine working with Cote in NCIS Season 12, Wickersham said, "it would be fun."

Wickersham first appeared on NCIS Season 11, Episode 9 ("Gut Check"). Her character Emily Bishop is revealed to have applied for an agent post around the time Ziva David (Cote de Pablo) was hired. She comes back in NCIS Season 12 with more stories about her personal life.

Cote de Pablo was last seen in NCIS Season 11, Episode 2 ("Past, Present, and Future"). The actress cited personal reasons for leaving, as network bosses emphasised money was not the issue. Since then, Tiva (Tony and Ziva) fans have been hoping for a reunion and a proper closure.

Emily was recently at the 54th Monte Carlo TV Festival, promoting NCIS Season 12. The actress said she hopes the viewers could meet Ellie Bishop's husband in the show's new season.

It has been earlier reported that Michael Weatherly, who plays Ziva's love interest Tony DiNozzo, has signed on for two more years with NCIS on CBS. Mark Harmon and the rest of the cast are all coming back, too, for NCIS Season 12.

Meanwhile, "NCIS: New Orleans" has been given a formal green light by the CBS Network, Digital Spy reported. Also launching on CBS in the same 2014-2015 television calendar is another crime drama, "Battle Creek," from Vince Gilligan ("Breaking Bad").

Avid viewers of NCIS are hoping there could be a 3-way episode featuring the characters of NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, and NCIS New Orleans in the near future.

The NCIS Season 12 premiere date on CBS is expected to be around late September 2015.
