Michael Weatherly Is Leaving 'NCIS' After 13 Seasons

Michael Weatherly has announced that he is leaving his longtime hit series NCIS after 13 seasons as Special Agent Tony DiNozzo.

“DiNozzo is a wonderful, quixotic character and I couldn’t have had more fun playing him over the past 13 seasons,” the 47-year-old actor wrote on Twitter. “Les Moonves and CBS gave me the opportunity of a lifetime. I will miss the amazing crew and cast, who are like family to me, and to the fans all over the world — THANK YOU, it’s been a fantastic ride!”

CBS confirmed to TVLine that Michael will be leaving at the end of the season.

“After 13 years on NCIS, Michael Weatherly is leaving the show at the end of this season,” the network said in a statement. “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.”
