While fans ponder the fate of Ziva David in her last two episodes of NCIS, it's confirmed that the character won't be killed off in season 11.

"It's not what this character deserves," the show's Executive Producer, Gary Glasberg, told TV Line in a Wednesday report. "Also, [we killed off] Sasha Alexander's Kate character [back in season 2] and I like the idea of doing this one a little different and respecting who [Ziva] is."

Glasberg also offered a bit more insight into what fans can expect of Ziva's last appearance on the show. He told the website that the second episode of season 11 will reveal why Ziva is going to make a particular and important decision. 

"We put a lot into that storyline, so I hope it works for people," he said of Ziva's situation.

Cote de Pablo, who plays Ziva on the show, opened up about her departure from NCIS in the latest issue of Latina magazine.

"It was not an easy decision, not one taken lightly. I feel like I am leaving my family," she said in the September 2013 issue. "What I want to say most of all is thank you to the fans and to the people who have been so supportive of me and of the show, who have made the show the great success that it is."

She announced that she was leaving the show after eight seasons in early July.

"I've had eight great years with NCIS and Ziva David," she said in the statement, in which she also spoke positively about her co-stars. "I look forward to finishing Ziva's story."

While rumors swirled that perhaps the network was to blame for de Pablo's decision, Leslie Roy Moonves, the CEO of CBS assured fans this was not the case. He also said that the network offered de Pablo a significant amount of money to convince her to stay. 

"We really didn't want to lose her. We love her; we think she was terrific," Moonves said during the Television Critics Association fall TV previews, according to FOX

NCIS is television's most popular series with a viewership of 22.7 million. Season 11 premieres on Sept. 24.
