It's Official -- NCIS' Pauley Perrette Is Returning to CBS in a Comedy

Welcome back to CBS, Pauley!

Megan Vick

NCISfan favorite Pauley Perrette is officially returning to CBS. Perrette's comedy Broke has been picked up to series for the next TV season, TV Guide has learned. This is Perrette's first series regular role since leaving NCIS last spring. The actress played forensic investigator Abby Sciuto for over 15 years on the popular procedural.

Broke also stars Jane the Virgin's Jaime Camil as a trust fund-dependent man who gets cut off by his father and must move his family in with his estranged sister-in-law (Perrette). Natasha Leggero and Izzy Diaz round out the cast.

Jane creator Jennie Snyder Urman serves as executive producer on the series alongside Will & Grace EP Alex Herschlag, who is also writing.

The pick-up comes after Urman's Jane the Virgin spin-off Jane the Novela was passed over at The CW. That series was going to be an anthology that spent each season exploring a new novel written by Jane Villanueva (Gina Rodriguez).

More details about Broke and when it will air will be announced next week during CBS's Upfronts presentation in New York.
