This is certainly quite a surprise…
Actress Pauley Perrette took to Twitter on Friday to reveal that she’s not ever planning on returning to the hit TV show NCIS — and it’s all because, according to her, she’s afraid of being attacked by the show’s star, actor Mark Harmon.

Perrette made the big reveal in the early morning hours yesterday, sharing her thoughts on Twitter, as you can see (below):
NO I AM NOT COMING BACK! EVER! (Please stop asking?) I am terrified of Harmon and him attacking me. I have nightmares about it. I have a new show that is SAFE AND HAPPY! You’ll love it!#HappyPlace Love y’all!

Hours later, she followed it up with allegations about an apparent assault on set, including pics of what appears to be a person’s eye area with stitches; Perrette identified the alleged victim as a crew member on set.
Here’s the series of pics (below):
Wow. Definitely some VERY serious allegations.
Of course, this is not the first time Perrette has sounded the alarm about assault allegations surrounding the production of NCIS; back in May of 2018, she publicly suggested that her exit from the show had something to do with the alleged culture of violence over there — and the accusations received quite a bit of media coverage at the time.
Still, this most recent outcry represents a very different — and much more pointed — set of allegations, especially considering the fact that she called out Harmon by name openly in the tweet.

As Deadline and TMZ have reported recently, there was an incident back in 2016 where a crew member on set was allegedly bitten by Harmon’s dog. It’s unclear is Perrette’s tweeted pictures reflect that incident, or an altogether different one entirely.
And as for the head brass over at CBS in charge of producing the TV show, execs have referred the media back to their previous statement from 2018, which followed Perrette’s original assault claims.
The statement reads (below):
“Pauley Perrette had a terrific run on NCIS and we are all going to miss her. Over a year ago, Pauley came to us with a workplace concern. We took the matter seriously and worked with her to find a resolution. We are committed to a safe work environment on all our shows.”
We’ll see what — if anything — comes of the new accusations levied this time around.
