'NCIS' Fans Are Dying to Know Whether Michael Weatherly Will Return With Cote de Pablo

By

Fans of NCIS were thrilled when CBS announced in April that the police procedural will return for a 17th season this fall. But the series looks a lot different than it did back in the mid-2000s.

After the departures of Cote de Pablo (Ziva David) in Season 11 and Michael Weatherly (Anthony “Tony” DiNozzo) in Season 13, the producers brought in new talent to fill the void, but it always felt like something was missing.

So when Ziva returned at the end of Season 16 much to Gibbs’ (Mark Harmon) surprise, and ours, viewers couldn’t help but hope that Tony will also make an appearance after finding out that the mother of his daughter is alive. 

Here’s what we know about Michael’s exit from the show three years ago and whether he has plans to return.
