After the Cancelation of ‘Bull’, NCIS Fans Hope That the Show Will Bring Back DiNozzo

Michael Weatherly has been a fixture on CBS’s evening drama lineup for quite some time. The veteran actor is best known for his portrayal of Tony DiNozzo on the hit procedural drama series NCIS. However, NCIS fans were undoubtedly disappointed when Michael Weatherly’s character left the show during the 13th season.

However, there would be no shortage of Weatherly on the popular television network. The former NCIS star quickly took on the role of Dr. Jason Bull in the courtroom drama Bull. Bull, however, is coming to an end after six seasons on the air. However, this could be good news for NCIS fans, as some are hoping for a return of Michael Weatherly’s DiNozzo character on NCIS.
NCIS fans are wondering if the cancellation of Bull means Tony DiNozzo will make a comeback.

NCIS fans speculated on Reddit recently about whether the cancellation of Bull would result in Michael Weatherly’s return to the show. However, it appears that many fans only see this as a guest appearance.

“[I’m] sure someone has said this,” one NCIS fan wrote on Reddit recently. “But do you think they’ll bring Tony back now that Bull has been [cancelled]?”

“Perhaps a cameo/guest role,” one NCIS fan speculates.

“They’ve mentioned him,” adds the Redditor. “It would be interesting to see a video call with them.”

Perhaps Tony DiNozzo’s return to NCIS will be a nostalgic nod to the past.

While Weatherly and his character are beloved on the show, bringing back old storylines can become tiresome, according to one NCIS fan. However, the Redditor believes that guest appearances here and there could be a fun throwback.



“Right now, the series is like a breath of fresh air,” the fan says.

“You don’t get that from long-standing characters whose stories have been told,” the Redditor continues. However, a commenter suggests that some nostalgic guest-starring moments would be welcome.

“However, I would welcome him back as a guest star as much as he wanted,” the NCIS fan says.

“And if they could get de Pablo (Ziva) in on it too,” they say of Michael Weatherly’s possible return to NCIS. “Nostalgia is a hell of a drug, and they’ve done it well before.”
Some fans believe Michael Weatherly’s DiNozzo will not return to the team.

Other series fans, on the other hand, believe Tony DiNozzo has reached a point in his life where he would never return to this line of work. One NCIS fan speculates that Tony would not “want the career that would jeopardize his daughter’s father’s life.”

And, as this fan points out, not only would Ziva likely oppose DiNozzo returning to the States to rejoin the team, but he also wouldn’t return now that his pal, Mark Harmon’s Leroy Jethro Gibbs, has left the series.

“As others have already stated, the only way I think it works at this point is in a guest star role,” another Redditor says.

“Perhaps for a short arc,” the fan adds, proposing an arc idea.

“They could have Tony working out of the [Marseille] field office,” the post continues. “And a case could force the team to work the case with that office.”
