Gone but never forgotten! NCIS star Michael Weatherly jumped on Twitter as the show’s Season 13 finale aired on Tuesday, May 17, to send love to his legions of fans and pay tribute to his now former costars.

The hit show will return next season without Weatherly, who is leaving to take a role in Bull, another CBS show, in which he’ll play a jury consultant.

As fans dashed to social media to mourn the departure of the much-loved special agent, Weatherly and his costars got involved too, making sure DiNozzo got the send off he deserved.

“I love you all …” Weatherly wrote.

Exec Producer Gary Glasberg, who took over the show’s social feed, reassured fans that Weatherly’s departure had been taken very seriously.

“We’ve been discussing Tony’s departure for months an have taken these decisions very seriously. We truly recognize and appreciate everything this character has brought to our show.”

Pauley Perrette shared a picture of Weatherley’s empty parking space on the CBS lot and a few funny pictures of her attempts to keep her costar in the show!
