While DiNozzo may no longer be in NCIS, the show must go on with another series on the horizon.
The drama was renewed for season 20 earlier this year, with spin-offs NCIS Los Angeles and NCIS Hawaii granted a series 14 and second season, respectively.
Weatherly left his role on CBS legal drama Bull earlier this year after six seasons which has prompted some fans to believe he would return to NCIS but as of yet, there has been no talk of a comeback.
NCIS season 20 premieres on Monday, September 19, on CBS in America. A UK release date hasn’t been revealed.
