It’s been clear from the get-go with Bull that there are a contingent of Cote de Pablo fans eager to see her appear on the show. Yet, to date it hasn’t quite happened. There were some hopes that she could be brought on to play his ex-wife and Benny’s sister; personally, it was nice to see that role go to Yara Martinez instead, since the fun of seeing her would be seeing her in a completely different sort of relationship to Bull than what Ziva had to Tony on NCIS.
While nothing is confirmed at present when it comes to Cote on Bull season 2, signs point to a reunion being a possibility. Speaking per TheWrap, Weatherly noted that there are talks to potentially bring Cote over to his new show for a role. He also expressed that there are also hopes that the second season ends up becoming even more successful than the first:
“I think ‘Bull’ Season 2 is going to be ripe to be re-reviewed. I think it’s a show that has won many fans but I think it’s going to win many more.”
There does certainly seem to be a wide array of characters Cote could play, as Eliza Dushku as J.P. Nunnelly proved at the end of this season that there is room for strong, challenging recurring characters who can alter Bull’s way of thinking in some fairly dramatic ways. Personally, we’ve always liked the idea of her being a formidable opponent — there’s a piece on the cite already advocating for her to be the Moriarty to his Sherlock Holmes, so to speak. Having her be an enemy of Bull’s in some ways would be infinitely fun.
Is there an interest on the show’s part in making this happen? Probably, since it’d attract a ton of viewers and give the show even more life. Meanwhile, Weatherly certainly seems to be down for her coming on board. If the role is right and there’s room in her schedule, you have to assume that she would also consider it. Time will tell if it happens, but consider this something to remember over the course of the summer.
