I delivered your inquiry, shared my many, to showrunner Steven D. Binder, and his first response was, “Wouldn’t that be great?” But from there, he turned skeptical. “When [Michael] left NCIS, he said to me, ‘I am never going to do network television again,'” Binder related. “He had just had some kids, and the hours are so long… but then this Bull thing landed in his lap, and again he was working like a fiend. So I suspect — forgetting Tony DiNozzo for a minute — that Michael Weatherly is on vacation. I’ve known him for a while and I think he needs to chillax and go someplace tropical. I haven’t spoken to him about that but we’ve talked over the years, and that’s my guess.”
