In the 13th episode of the 16th season (aptly called "She"), we got to see a glimpse of "Ziva". Since then, NCIS fans have been sure that "Ziva" is still alive. She lives in Washington DC and is still working an old case.

He also makes it clear that Coté de Pablo might not come back physically, but as somewhat of a 'ghost', as she did in the episode "She": "I don't want to say ‘the sky’s the limit,’ but given that she’s been gone for years, there’s a lot that could have happened that could be fodder for us," Binder said, "even if she’s not necessarily present."
