Actress Pauley Perrette will leave the CBS series ‘NCIS’ after 15 seasons.

Perrette has played forensic specialist Abby Sciuto on the show since its debut in 2003.

She announced the news on Twitter Wednesday.

The actress said there have been all kinds of false rumors as to why she left.

“No my network and show are not mad at me!” Perrette tweeted in all caps.

While it’s no Criminal Minds, NCIS is no stranger to occasional cast changes. In more recent years, Cote de Pablo parted ways with the show at the start of Season 11, Michael Weatherly left to star in Bull after Season 13, and Jennifer Esposito didn’t return for the current season, after a one-year run.

When Perrette departs the series, only two original cast members will remain.

NCIS airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on CBS.
