They might’ve been denied their happy ending on NCIS – but have we really seen the last of Ziva David and Tony DiNozzo?
Speaking to Digital Spy to promote his new series Bull, Michael Weatherly said he’d “never say never” to returning to NCIS, or an on-screen reunion with Cote de Pablo.
“I absolutely see worlds where DiNozzo and other characters could pop up [again],” he said. “It is something I’m very keen to explore when the time is right.”
De Pablo left NCIS in 2013, with Weatherly following her out the door last year. In DiNozzo’s final episode, he learnt that Ziva (de Pablo) had apparently been killed, and resigned from his position to care for their young child.
But fans are still eager to see the popular pairing back together – with some speculating that Ziva character could still be alive, since the character’s body was never recovered.
“I would never say!” Weatherly teased, when we asked if the fan theories could be true. But he added: “Whether or not it’s in Bull or in some other iteration of an NCIS, I would say there’s always the chance of [me reuniting with Cote].
“She’s one of my favourite people. For eight years, we got to have a lot of fun. Certainly, in terms of chemistry, I’ve never had anyone like that rattle my brain!”
