How Tony and Ziva’s Daughter Will Impact the NCIS Spin-Off

By Movieguide® Contributor

As NCIS fans prepare for the new Tony and Ziva spin-off, more details about the show have been released.

Michael Weatherly revealed that the new show will include a special character: Tony and Ziva’s daughter, Tali.

The actor shared, “Every choice that Tony and Ziva have to make in their adventure, their child is first and foremost in the front of their mind. When we were on the NCIS the mothership, we didn’t have children.”

He continued, “When you have a child, you have to navigate what is best for them. Then maybe you have a co-parent that you have a tumultuous relationship with… and oh, wait, we also have to save the world.”

More cameos?

In addition to Tali, other past characters are hoping to make an appearance on the new series.

Wilmer Valderrama is one who hopes to show up as his character Nick Torres.

At the Monte Carlo TV Festival, he shared “I’ve explored so much, I have got to do a lot of good things. But I’d like to maybe have my character be undercover somewhere in Europe, to leave Washington DC and have my character embedded in Italy, France or London.”

Brian Dietzen who plays Dr. Jimmy Palmer also expressed his desire to appear on the show.

“I’m so happy for Michael and Cote and think John McNamara is going to do a fantastic job for them. It sounds very atypical for NCIS as far as the storytelling because it won’t be a case-of-the week type of show,” he said. That said, if they say: ‘Hey we need Jimmy Palmer on a plasma screen’ at any point… yes, that’d be fun, I’d do that in a heartbeat.”

Movieguide previously reported: “The series, set to stream on Paramount+, focuses on their NCIS characters, Tony DiNozzo and Ziva David, after they have left the agency, and are bringing up their daughter, Tali, in Paris,” Variety reported. “When Tony’s security company is attacked, they must go on the run across Europe, try to figure out who is after them and maybe even learn to trust each other again so that they can finally have their unconventional happily ever after.”
