Is NCIS new tonight on CBS?

NCIS Season 21 is not coming in 2023

“Danger, Intrigue, A Damsel in Distress… 

I’m actually looking forward to it.”

So are we Ducky, so are we.

Is NCIS new tonight? Unfortunately no. NCIS will not be joining us on the CBS network channel this Monday, the next, or the Monday after. In fact, it will be quite a few Mondays before we see NCIS on our screens again.

With a two-decade-long run of investigations, crimes, mysteries, and action-packed scenes, NCIS Season 20 bagged the title of the most-watched scripted TV season with a viewership of 9.86 million. With this success in mind, NCIS Season 21 was officially renewed on 21st February 2023 ahead of the NCIS Season 20 finale (Black Spy), which aired on 22nd May 2023.

So the most pressing question remains now that the renewal for Season 21 is official: Will NCIS be back in the fall of 2023?

We have updated information regarding the same, so keep reading to find out!

Will NCIS be back for Season 21?

As stated above, a renewal for Season 21 was confirmed by the official CBS network as well as the NCIS’s official Twitter handle on 21st February 2023, along with several other series returning to the CBS network channel for an additional season like NCIS: Hawai’i, CSI: Vegas, 60 Minutes, The Amazing Race, and Survivor among others.

However, that’s all for the official announcements, and as you can see, there has not been any official announcement regarding its release date.

Here is what we know.

NCIS Season 21: Release Updates

CBS has released its fall 2023-24 series, and we are delighted to inform you that NCIS is a part of it. NCIS has bagged the Monday 9-10 pm slot on a weekly basis.

However, it is imperative to know that the writing for the script for Season 21 has NOT BEGUN YET! So it is befuddling to comprehend how a fall release will follow. Technically, for a fall release, the writing should be wrapped up by summer and in post-production before fall.

However, we are entering the third month of the WGA strike, and there is no telling when this will end. If the writers are not free, we do not have a script for NCIS Season 21. Hence practically, we cannot expect NCIS Season 2 Episode 1 to air this fall.

At this rate, we can only hope for an early or mid-2024 release.

NCIS Season 21: Cast

Since the writing for Season 21 is on a hiatus, we have not received any official announcements on additions or deductions to the cast.

One thing we know for sure. Mark Harmon will not be returning for Season 21. In addition to this, there are some rumors saying they will be bringing back Michael Weatherly in Season 21, as was done before in Seasons 16 and 17. Another rumored addition is that of Cote de Pablo.

According to TV Fanatic,

“Bosses are tearing their hair out over their terms.” This is in tune with the demands the actors are placing for their return to the show. So we will need to wait and watch over the developments that take place in this context. Other than that, this is the cast list of who we can expect to watch in NCIS Season 21:

  • Sean Murray as Timothy McGee
  • Wilmer Valderrama as Nick Torres
  • Katrina Law as Jessica Knight
  • Brian Dietzen as Dr. Jimmy Palmer
  • Diona Reasonover as Kasie Hines
  • David McCallum as Dr. Donald “Ducky” Mallard
  • Rocky Carroll as Leon Vance
  • Gary Cole as Alden Parker

The creation of the series can be attributed to Donald P. Bellisario. NCIS is produced by Bellisarius Productions in association with CBS Studios. Steven D. Binder, Chas. Floyd Johnson, Mark Horowitz, Mark Harmon, Scott Williams, David North, and Bellisario serve as executive producers.
