After his unexpected comeback as Tony DiNozzo in NCIS Season 21, Episode 2, Michael Weatherly has finally broken his silence on social media.

Weatherly, who portrayed the iconic “Very Special Agent,” made his return nearly a decade after departing the CBS police procedural. His reprisal of the beloved character came as a surprise to fans in the recent tribute episode dedicated to David McCallum’s character, Dr. Mallard. While speculation surrounded the potential return of Mark Harmon’s Leroy Jethro Gibbs due to his close ties with Dr. Mallard, it was DiNozzo who graced the screen once more.

The return of DiNozzo in NCIS Season 21 brought joy to fans, a sentiment Weatherly acknowledged with a new social media post. In the post, he was pictured alongside director and NCIS: LA actor Daniela Ruah, who is set to direct several NCIS episodes this season. Weatherly also commended Brian Dietzen, who portrays Jimmy Palmer, for co-writing the heartfelt Ducky tribute episode alongside Scott Williams.

The post garnered excitement from fans and served as a reminder of Weatherly’s enduring connection to the NCIS family.
