Michael Weatherly will be departing the long-running series NCIS at season’s end, and CBS Entertainment President Glenn Geller today answered reporter questions on how he will be leaving the show.
“They are working on how Michael’s character is going to be written out, and Gary and the producers are working on that right now,” Geller said. “I will definitely miss, as I’m sure the fans will, too, and my mother, very special agent Tony DiNozzo, and his decision was his. It was a creative one. He had been in the role for 13 years, and I completely understand that and wish him well.”
And will Cote de Pablo return to NCIS to see him out?
Geller says there are not currently any plans.
NCIS airs Tuesdays on CBS.
