Actress Geneva Carr, who plays Marissa Morgan, has been a constant supporter of Dr. Jason Bull on Bull. Is she leaving the CBS drama?

We’ll take a look at this with some help from Distractify.

Obviously, Michael Weatherly plays Bull on the show. Here’s the short answer: No, she’s not leaving. Yet let’s look at the bigger picture.

Morgan has been there next to Dr. Bull in each decision.

Executive producer Kathryn Price, in an interview with TV Insider, said Geneva’s character will be re-evaluating her role on Bull.

We hope Dr. Bull will support Morgan. She developed the algorithm that lets Jason predict jury reactions. Without it, he’d be helpless.

‘Bull’ Actress Said Her Character Is ‘In Every Way Dr. Bull’s Equal’

In an interview with Regard Magazine, Carr said, “Bull measures juries by their emotions and Marissa does it by their stats. She is smart and driven and in every way Dr. Bull’s equal.”

Carr said she used herself as a template to create Marissa, who is a “smarter me, with a better wardrobe and faster comebacks, but me.”

She said the writers are “always challenging me and tapping into things about myself I didn’t know that anyone knew or noticed, and then, they let me fly.”

Carr started acting late. The Bull actress attended Mount Holyoke College. She majored in French and English.

She moved to France to go to business school. While chatting with Theater Mania, Geneva said, “I thought I would live in France forever.” She traveled to New York City and everything changed.

Carr saw Appointment With a High-Wire Lady, starring Victor Slezak, Suzanne Shepherd, and Frances Conroy. She said, “I’d seen so little theater in my life. [There were] maybe 10 people in the audience [and] three people onstage. It was so astounding and moving and I thought, ‘That’s what I want to do.'”

Bull airs on Thursdays at 10 p.m. Eastern, 9 p.m. Central, on CBS.

Weatherly Believes His CBS Drama Is A ‘Great Lens on Society’

Weatherly truly believes that the series reflects parts of how society does operate.

Bull is this great lens on society and we’ve gone away from the screens and all the technology and the deep dives of Twitter and Facebook and social media aspect,” Weatherly says.

The former NCIS star said the show’s in the first season was on the technology aspect. Then, it turned to focus on social themes.

“Now it’s much more about these social themes,” he said. “I think the show will keep changing, I don’t think it’ll stay there. I think as we go through it is reflecting how turbulent everything is.”

The show remains one of CBS’s solid dramas. As long as Weatherly wants to be on the show, it’ll keep ongoing.
