Could Michael Weatherly Return To NCIS?

By Movieguide® Contributor

Actor Michael Weatherly recently teased his return to NCIS!

The actor, who played Tony DiNozzo on the show, left NCIS during Season 13. But fans who anxiously awaited his return could be in for a treat.

In a tweet, Weatherly shared a story about a server asking him what’s next.

“I said a podcast and maybe an indie movie, another round of DiNozzo at some point,” the actor shared, before the server clarified that they meant what item on the menu he wanted to try next. 

His post added fuel to the fire — some fans have theorized that a throwback post from NCIS star Sean Murray was actually a clue for an upcoming reunion. 

Movieguide® previously reported on Weatherly’s potential return to NCIS:

After Michael Weatherly announced his departure from BULL, and subsequently the show’s final season, rumors began to swirl that the actor would return to NCIS.

Weatherly was a series regular for the procedural as Agent Tony DiNozzo for 13 seasons. Fans are eager to see him return, especially after Mark Harmon left the show earlier this season.

“I hope this means you might return to NCIS,” one fan tweeted.

Another commented on Weatherly’s tweet about his departure: “This is only acceptable if it means you’re gonna go back to @NCIS_CBS.”

So what does Weatherly have to say about returning to his old show?

While he hasn’t said anything recently, Weatherly’s previous comments about a potential return to NCIS keep fans hopeful.

In his 2016 statement announcing his departure, the actor said, “[DiNozzo] will live on in the hearts and minds of the viewers and is embedded in the show… I would absolutely be open to anything and everything including things that no one’s even thought of yet.”

In 2018, Weatherly tweeted: “I will always be ready to play DiNozzo when the time is right.”
