Pauley Perrette took time to reflect on her "difficult years" following her departure from "NCIS" and thanked fans for supporting her as her new CBS show "Broke" gets closer to the premiere date.
"I want to thank all y’all that supported me through a few devastatingly difficult years," the star said on social media. "I’m so happy and healthy now and having a blast."
Perrette explained that she is "SO FREAKIN HAPPY" while shooting her new show and ended her tweet with a loving message.
"THANK YOU positive people for helping me and being kind Love y’all!" Pauley wrote.
She did not explain what she means by "difficult years," but many fans are speculating that she is referring to the drama surrounding her leave from "NCIS."
Around the time of her departure, she accused the show's lead actor, Mark Harmon, of abuse. Perrette claimed that she suffered physical assaults on set and that she was afraid of Harmon in a series of tweets that have been taken down.
She also filed official complaints with CBS that were eventually resolved and the relationship with the network seems to be very positive now, considering she is starring in a new sitcom.
Looking To The Future
The new sitcom, "Broke" features Pauley as a bartender who takes in her formerly rich sister, her sister's husband, and their kids.
This will reportedly be Perrette's first TV appearance after leaving her 15 season-long role as Abby Sciuto on "NCIS."
The show was picked up in May and is scheduled to air in 2020.
