Fans of the television series “NCIS” shouldn’t expect to see Pauley Perrette reprise her role as forensic specialist Abby Sciuto.
In a series of bombshell social media posts this week, the actress accused former costar Mark Harmon of physically assaulting her on the set of the hit CBS drama, as reported by the New York Post.
“NO I AM NOT COMING BACK!” Perrette tweeted. “EVER! (Please stop asking?)”
She went on to assert that she is “terrified of Harmon and him attacking me,” adding that she still suffers from nightmares of the incident.
Instead of fans tuning in to “NCIS” to see her on the small screen, Perrette used the opportunity to plug her new series.
“I have a new show that is SAFE AND HAPPY!” she wrote. “You’ll love it!#HappyPlace Love y’all!”
She followed the initial post with one providing a more details account of her allegations against Harmon.
A popular series regular, Perrette created headlines last year when she announced her departure from the show.
At that time, she tweeted that she had been attacked “multiple” times and attempted to prevent similar abuse to other cast members.
“Trying to remain calm,” she wrote last year. “He did it.”
CBS responded to those claims, writing that Perrette brought a “workplace concern” to the attention of the network.
“We took the matter seriously and worked with her to find a resolution,” the statement continued. “We are committed to a safe work environment on all our shows.”
As of the latest reports available, Harmon has not responded to the latest allegations against him.
