• THIS actor left 'NCIS'
  • Now he wants a comeback
  • That's what he has to say

Michael Weatherly (53), who starred on 'NCIS' until 2016, hinted in a recent interaction with fans on X that the story of his character "Tony DiNozzo" is not yet fully told. After an absence of around eight years, Weatherly seems to be ready for a return - at least if he has his way. 

Why Michael Weatherly wants to return to 'NCIS'

On X, Weatherly wrote: "There will be more DiNozzo someday because he is the one character that felt unfinished... that's my plan! We shall see..." 

The character "DiNozzo", known for his relationship with "Ziva David" (Cote de Pablo), was the center of attention until "Ziva" was seemingly killed by the season's villain. "DiNozzo" learned that their child "Tali" was also his own, and decided to leave the team to focus on his role as a father. 

Cote de Pablo briefly returned to the series a few years ago and there has been speculation about a comeback for "Tony" ever since. Apparently, the actor now just has to convince the scriptwriters and producers of his plans.
