Michael Weatherly announced via Twitter that his CBS legal drama inspired by Dr. Phil McGraw's early career will end after the currently airing Season 6. CBS confirmed the cancelation. "Hello all! It’s been my privilege to play Dr Jason Bull but after 6 Seasons of incredible storylines, I’ve decided it’s time to pursue new creative challenges and bring his story to a close," Weatherly tweeted. "It has been an honor to work with this talented cast, crew and writing/producing team who helped reinvent the legal drama. Stay tuned for a big series finish…Thanks to all the fans from the bottom of my heart. You will always be a part of our Bull family!" Bull infamously made headlines in 2018 after The New York Times revealed CBS paid Bull guest-star Eliza Dushku $9.5 million over her allegations that Weatherly sexually harassed her on set. “For six seasons, Bull has established itself as a ratings winner with its fresh take on the judicial process never before seen on television,” CBS said in a statement. As Variety notes, Bull ending will mark the first time in nearly two decades that Weatherly won't be on the network's primetime lineup. Weatherly began starring in Bull in 2016 after starring on NCIS from 2003 to 2016.
