NCIS star Michael Weatherly played fan-favorite agent Tony DiNozzo in the popular police series for 13 years, leaving the show in 2016.

But what exactly was the actor's reason for bowing out of the drama and will he be returning anytime soon? Find out here…

Shortly after his exit was announced back in 2016, Michael revealed that he had started to consider departing the programme after his co-star and on-screen love interest Cote de Pablo, who played Ziva, left.

He then went on to star in legal drama, Bull, which ran for six seasons before its end in May earlier this year.

"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."

While Steven doesn't sound too hopeful, Michael hasn't explicitly said that he will never return to the show.

Back in May, Michael shared a TV Insider article that asked: "NCIS: Will Michael Weatherly return for a guest spot with 'Bull' ending?". He captioned the tweet: "End of @BullCBS tonight, I'm reflecting on 22 years of TV. From Dark Angel & @NCIS_CBS it’s been a fantastic experience; worked w/ thousands of actors & hundreds of directors. I'm taking some time to look back on it all. And always the question: @tvinsider."
