The ‘NCIS’ Showrunner Provides an Update on Michael Weatherly’s Possible Return

NCIS fans have been clamoring for some of their favorite actors to return, and Michael Weatherly is unquestionably one of them. He played Tony DiNozzo for the first 13 seasons of the show before leaving. He would go on to star in another CBS series, Bull, as Jason Bull.

He’s finished with that show, which concluded its run in the spring. Fans would love to see him return and work with the current cast. What on earth is going on here? NCIS showrunner Steven D. Binder provided an update on the possibility of Weatherly returning in Season 20.

“Wouldn’t that be fantastic?” Binder told TV Line in an interview. “When [Michael] left NCIS, he told me, ‘I will never do network television again.’ He’d just had some children, and the hours are so long… But then this Bull thing landed in his lap, and he started working like a fiend all over again.

So, putting Tony DiNozzo aside for a moment, I believe Michael Weatherly is on vacation. I’ve known him for a while, and I believe he needs to relax and visit somewhere tropical. I haven’t asked him about it, but we’ve talked about it over the years, so that’s my guess.”

Could Cote de Pablo Be Next If Michael Weatherly Returns to ‘NCIS’?

Weatherly reportedly left the show in order to expand his TV roles. In addition, actress Cote de Pablo had left NCIS, and they had been an on-screen couple. According to the plot, Special Agent Ziva David, played by de Pablo, was linked to DiNozzo.

They’d be distracted from their work. Both actors are no longer involved with the show on a regular basis. If Weatherly returned, could de Pablo make an appearance as well? Everything is feasible. One would think that any problems between de Pablo and the show would be resolved.

On his follow-up series, Weatherly portrayed Jason Bull. That character was inspired by Dr. Phil McGraw, who also served as an executive producer for the show. If you’re familiar with McGraw’s story, he once assisted Oprah Winfrey in a courtroom during a trial.

If you’ve seen Bull, you’ll know that the main character is “the founder of a successful trial consulting firm, where he and his team of experts use various tactics to help their clients win in court,” according to CBS. Meanwhile, Pauley Perrette has been spotted recently as well. She portrayed Abby Scuito on the show and is said to have retired from acting. Still, it would be fantastic if she considered returning.
