The flagship NCIS series, like law enforcement agents, has a companion in the shape of NCIS: Hawai’i. That collaboration is slated to continue during the 2023-2024 television season, with NCIS season 21 and NCIS: Hawai’i season 3 airing back-to-back on CBS.
NCIS: Hawai’i, the fourth NCIS franchise to air, is the only other version of the popular NCIS franchise presently running, after NCIS: Los Angeles ended its run in spring 2023. So, what can viewers anticipate as the spinoff programme enters a new season, other than fascinating crimes set against the stunning background of Hawai’i?
NCIS: Hawai’i Season 3: Is it delayed?
As we all know, NCIS: Hawai’i is a spin-off of the NCIS franchise. CBS announced the formation on April 23, 2021, and it finally happened on October 11, 2021. Following the popularity of the first two seasons, the fanbase became infatuated with the series, allowing for a second season! Finally, the second season was renewed in March 2022, with the first episode airing on September 19, 2022. The current season’s conclusion will now air on May 22, 2023, leaving us behind. The third season has been renewed till February 21, 2023.
Although our original assumption was that the series would be released sometime in September, given the ongoing writers’ strike, there might be another delay in the premier of the series. However, nothing can be known with certainty until a teaser or trailer is published. Let us wait and watch what happens to Jane and her crew. Since all we can do is wait for the third season and speculate on what may happen!
What to expect from NCIS: Hawai’i Season 3?
Because NCIS: Hawai’i is a procedural, episodes typically lack connective tissue, opting for a case-of-the-week approach, yet there are a few major plotlines that occur throughout the season. We don’t know what those are yet, but the NCIS: Hawai’i season 2 finale did hint at one fascinating element. Sam Hanna, LL Cool J’s NCIS: Los Angeles character, made a surprise appearance, which will apparently set him up to appear again occasionally in NCIS: Hawai’i season 3.
Aside from that, below is the core narrative of NCIS: Hawai’i for your convenience:
“Jane Tennant is the first female Special Agent in Charge of NCIS Pearl Harbor. She and her team balance duty to family and country, investigating high-stakes crimes involving military personnel, national security and the mysteries of the island itself. This NCIS: Hawai’i team is a skilled mix of mainland transplants who’ve relocated to the tranquility of the Pacific and wizened locals who know their mahalo from kapu.”
Who might be cast for NCIS: Hawai’i Season 3
NCIS: Hawai’i is a criminal drama television series developed by Christopher Silber, Jan Nash, and Matt Bosack. The fractious team is based in the Pearl Harbour Field Office, which deals with military and national security issues. The series is full of action and criminal investigations, and given the popularity of the first two seasons, we may expect the main cast to return for the third season:
- Jane Tennant, played by Vanessa Lachey, a well-known American Actress, fashion model & television host.

- Lucy Tara, played by Yasmine Al-Bustami, is a UAE-American actress.
