Taking to Instagram this week, Sasha Alexander – who played special agent Caitlin Todd in the CBS drama – shared a behind-the-scenes snap of herself and Anthony DiNizzo actor Michael on set. However, the photo wasn’t a throwback post but was actually taken recently as the two TV stars have reunited on the set of legal drama Bull.

Sadly though, Sasha will not be joining Michael on-screen as she is actually stepping behind the camera to direct an episode in the show’s final season.
Still, NCIS fans were delighted to see the former co-stars back together and quickly rushed to the comment section to share their reactions. One wrote: “I loved you guys on NCIS, how t****ic you’re working together again!”

“NOT ME WAITING FOR THIS MOMENT FOR 10 YEARS,” another excited fan added, followed by a string of crying face emojis, while a third simply said: “Tony and Kate reunited!!!!”
As fans will recall, Michael bowed out of the long-running naval drama back in 2016 after 13 seasons on the show, while fellow original star Sasha left many years before. She decided to call it a day after just two seasons as she found the gruelling filming schedule too much.
Her character, who had something of a love-hate relationship with DiNozzo, was assassinated in the season two finale. Speaking about her exit in 2005, Michael revealed that he did not know his co-star was being permanently written out of the show until he “saw the special-effects guy attaching a blood pack to her hair” and realised that she was being k****d off.
Both were part of the original NCIS line up
Since her exit, Sasha has continued to be a regular face on television but has also made a move into directing, having helmed episodes of Netflix thriller You and Rizzoli & Isles.

Meanwhile, the same year of his departure, Michael landed the lead role in Bull, which is loosely based on the early career of TV’s Dr Phil.
However, in recent months the actor has repeatedly sent NCIS fans into a tailspin by sharing to his own social media throwback photos of his time on the show alongside cryptic captions, sparking hope that he is keen to return after leaving his role as Jason Bull concludes later this year.
