Michael Weatherly Signs Deal to Return to NCIS

by at . Comments

After a protracted and somewhat contentious negotiation period, Michael Weatherly has finally signed a new, multi-year deal to return to NCIS for its eighth season.

Entertainment Weekly confirms that Weatherly, who plays wise-cracking Tony DiNozzo, will be back for Season 8 and beyond, keeping the cast almost wholly intact.

Sean Murray is the only cast member without a new contract. Pauley Perrette, Rocky Carroll, and David McCallum all reached new deals to return in recent months.

Mark Harmon and Cote de Pablo already had deals in place for Season 8. Harmon, Weatherly, Perrette and McCallum have appeared on all 162 episodes of the show.

Once Murray signs a new contract, which he is expected to, the complete NCIS cast will be signed for multiple seasons, great news for fans of TV's best-rated drama.

NCIS! Federal Agent!

A free agent no more, Michael Weatherly will star on NCIS for the foreseeable future.

I am so excited that Michael Weatherly has decided to return! If there were no Anthony DiNozzo, the show might as well lock the doors.

[voiceover] Anyone can achieve their fullest potential, who we are might be predetermined, but the path we follow is always of our own choosing. We should never allow our fears or the expectations of others to set the frontiers of our destiny. Your destiny can't be changed but, it can be challenged. Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one.
