NCIS rumors about Michael Weatherly coming back have surfaced again.

Following the end of his show, Bull, Weatherly has teased a return to NCIS.

Many social media posts have indicated he is interested in playing Agent Anthony DiNozzo on the NCIS cast again.

The character left the team at the end of Season 13 after appearing in 306 episodes.

Now, a gossip site states that they have inside information about demands Weatherly has made of the production team.

It would certainly create some buzz for the show if Weatherly returned, but the gossip site is also not revealing its sources.

What does Michael Weatherly demand to return to NCIS?

According to Radar Online, Weatherly insisted that Cote de Pablo and Robert Wagner return to the show with him.

Wagner played DiNozzo’s dad and brought a lot of humor to the episodes he was featured in.

And de Pablo played Agent Ziva David, who ended up being the primary lover interest for DiNozzo.

Having the trio back on the show could be a lot of fun, but Radar Online claims that the show is balking at bringing everyone back.

Whether or not Weatherly’s return would be for one episode or as a main character, it could add some drama to the show.

If they bring back Weatherly and David, I don’t think I will continue to watch NCIS.
I really like the show and the story, but dealing with those two is way too much. Yes bring back Mark Harmon, but Gary Cole is doing a great job along with the people on the show at this time.

I think the show is doing a wonderful job just the way it is. Don’t change it I like the characters and how the show has progressed forward.

I’m just not interested any more. I really liked it when Tony and Ziva were on the show and I could tolerate Mark Harmony’s overacting. But I haven’t watched at all this year. It’s boring and the characters lack flair. Sean Murray’s character was heartwarming for his neediness. The new folks-blah. I would watch again if they brought Tony, et al back.
