Michael Weatherly In Talks For Potential NCIS Return

Former NCIS star Michael Weatherly is reportedly in talks with the show about his return to the long-running CBS show.

The actor, who played Tony DiNozzo from 2003 to 2016, is negotiating with the drama’s executives about his potential comeback, according to RadarOnline.

According to the report, the show’s producers are eager for Michael to return, but they are “balking” over his demands that they also bring back his co-star Cote de Pablo, who played his on-screen father Robert Wagner and Ziva David, his TV love interest.

Michael has dropped major hints about his potential return and a reunion with Cote over recent months, leaving fans convinced that he will reprise his role sometime soon.

What has Michael Weatherly said about returning to NCIS?

In a Twitter comment on a reflective post from New Year’s Day earlier this year, Michael alluded to a potential reunion for Tony and Ziva. The tweet read: “Happy New Year! It’s time to look at time and enjoy the moment!”

In the comments, one fan wrote: “We all would rather look at you and Ziva reuniting and enjoying that moment,” prompting Michael to write the reply: “Stay tuned… for this might be an interesting year for such ‘moments’!“

Back in May last year, he also hinted at his return to the drama. Taking to his Twitter account, the 54-year-old shared a TV Insider article that asked: “NCIS: Will Michael Weatherly return for a guest spot with ‘Bull’ ending?”. He captioned the post: “End of @BullCBS tonight, I’m reflecting on 22 years of TV. From Dark Angel & @NCIS_CBS it’s been a fantastic experience; worked w/ thousands of actors & hundreds of directors. I’m taking some time to look back on it all. And always the question: @tvinsider.”


What’s more, there has also been speculation about a possible spin-off series starring both Michael and Cote following the cancelation of NCIS: Los Angeles.

CBS has yet to make an announcement regarding Michael’s comeback, but we’ll keep you posted.

Is Mark Harmon returning to NCIS?

Another actor NCIS fans would love to see return to the show is former leading man Mark Harmon, who played Agent Leroy Gibbs for 19 seasons.

In a recent interview with TV Insider, Mark’s friend and co-star Rocky Carroll discussed the prospect of a comeback. He said, “We might run into Gibbs again.” “I believe that as long as this program is on the air, there will always be a small hint that Gibbs might pop up at some point.

Showrunner Steven D. Binder also expressed his desire for Mark’s return, telling TV Insider: “I don’t see how we don’t see him one more time at one point.”
