TV Line reported that two former characters of the CBS series are reprising their role in the imminent “NCIS” Season 15. The news outlet confirmed that Robert Wagner Jr. and Joe Spano, who play the roles of Anthony DiNozzo Sr. and Tobias Fornell, respectively, are going to appear in the next season.
Series showrunner Frank Cardea revealed that the two characters are set to return in the fifteenth installment to complete their corresponding missions.However, it remains to be seen if DiNozzo Sr. and Fornell would appear together in one episode or not.
Since Robert Wagner Jr. and Joe Spano were confirmed returning in “NCIS” , a number of fans are also hopeful that Michael Weatherly would also decide to make a return. It can be recalled that the 49-year-old “JAG” star broke the hearts of many after he decided to depart from the show in January 2016.
“He is a valued part of the CBS family, and the immense charm and talent he brings to the screen as ‘Very’ Special Agent Tony DiNozzo has helped make NCIS what it is today — the No. 1 drama in the world,” CBS stated in a statement.Initially, viewers are still clueless as to what could be the reason behind the actor’s shocking exit. However, it was later learned that Michael Weatherly landed a lead role in another CBS series titled “Bull.”
While some fans think that Weatherly’s return is needed to save the show’s plummeting ratings, there are also rumors claiming that Tony DiNozzo Jr. has to reunite with the rest of the cast since “NCIS” is the show’s final installment, People Choice reported.While these reports could possibly be true, it should be noted that nothing is confirmed until now. Hence, fans of the upcoming “NCIS” should take these speculations with a grain of salt.
