'NCIS' Season 10: Michael Weatherly, Pauley Perrette and Sean Murray all returning
The three actors, whose contracts were up at the end of last season, have all signed new two-year deals to remain on the CBS hit, Deadline reports. Their signings means the show's cast will remain intact for next season -- and could impact the resolution to May's cliffhanger finale.
When the finale aired -- the episode ended with a bomb going off at the NCIS office -- Weatherly, Murray and Perrette were all unsigned ( David McCallum's contract was also up, but he negotiated a new deal in April). The new contracts likely mean that everyone will survive the bombing -- though the aftermath might take a little while to resolve.
Mark Harmon, Cote de Pablo, Rocky Carroll and Brian Dietzen all have deals in place for next season as well.
"NCIS" is scheduled to begin its 10th season on Tuesday, Sept. 25.
