‘NCIS’ season 12: Michael Weatherly on missing Cote de Pablo, another ‘New Orleans’ crossover

NCIS -What’s better than a Q&A from Michael Weatherly? Seeing the “NCIS” star do one on Twitter at four in the morning! The actor prepares for the day at an insane hour, and found some time in there to touch on some questions that other night owls (or just people from other parts of the world) had.

One thing that should make “Tiva” fans happy? That Michael misses working with Cote de Pablo “every day,” but he is happy that “she is doing wonderful things.” Clearly, Michael would have no problem seeing Cote return to the show, and maybe it will happen at some point. She does have another CBS project coming in the “Dovekeepers” miniseries. We feel like if he or other producers on the show had no interest in ever bringing her back, they just wouldn’t talk about it. A good example of this? Every time someone suggests to Shonda Rhimes a Katherine Heigl return to “Grey’s Anatomy,” she quickly shuts it down.

As for some other interest news from this Q&A, Weatherly confirmed that he would be spending some time with “NCIS: New Orleans” star Scott Bakula on the set today. This means that another crossover episode is on the way, and we definitely cannot blame the shows for doing this. It benefits the new series to get as many crossover viewers as possible, and for the most part, some of these characters are already in the “NCIS” world anyway thanks to “Crescent City” from last season.

The “NCIS” premiere airs on September 23, and Weatherly described that episode in one word as “eclectic.” If you want to get more news on that and so much more right now, head over to the link here!
