NCIS Hawai’i Season 3 is not coming in July 2023

NCIS: Hawai’i Season 3 Release Date: When will it premiere on CBS?

If you have been keeping up with all the latest updates on NCIS: Hawai’i Season 3, then you’ll know that the filming of the new season hasn’t even begun yet, and it will take quite some time to properly schedule the production stage, which usually commences around the summer season. Due to this, one thing is pretty certain there is no way that the beloved police procedural series will be premiering new episodes in July 2023! 

One of the main reasons for this delay is the ongoing 2023 Writers Guild of America strike and the extension of the actor’s strike, which have directly caused many networks to close their writers’ rooms for a temporary period of time until a proper resolution for their compensation is made. Hence, a major shift in the 2023–2024 primetime schedule has been speculated to happen in a few weeks by the CBS network, and the fans are waiting for it to be acknowledged.

Right now, it appears that NCIS: Hawai’i might just be one of the shows that are going to push back its premiere sometime in early to mid-2024 in order to avoid any major hurdles in the way once the production starts once the strike concludes, which may happen later this year.  

Moreover, George Cheeks, President and CEO of CBS and Chief Content Officer, spoke about the possibility of delays in the fall 2023 lineup that didn’t factor in the potential impact of the ongoing writers’ strike during a keynote at Banff moderated by Deadline’s Peter White. He elaborated on the revised CBS fall scheduling plans, which are expected to be officially revealed soon.

“First of all, obviously it’s going to be very reality-heavy,” he further added.   

He was also asked to address the studio’s negotiations with the top Hollywood guilds and the ongoing WGA strike, to which he called the recently reached tentative agreement with the DGA “helpful.” Also added, “Our challenging issues are not exactly the same.” Cheeks further stated, “I still remain very hopeful that we will find compromises because it’s existential for all of us — for the studios, for the creative partners. We have got to figure this out.” 

NCIS Hawai’i Season 3 is not coming in July 2023

In conclusion, if we keep this scenario in mind, then there is a chance that the show creators may aim for the third season’s official release later this year or even sometime around 2024 in order to start the production process without any obstacles for the writers to begin working on it once the strike concludes. So, it’s safe to say that NCIS: Hawai’i fans may learn more about the new release date from CBS or the show’s producers in the coming days.  

As there has been no revised schedule has been issued by the network as of penning this, so we urge the fans to check out the previously unveiled 2023–2024 primetime CBS schedule, which still seems to be going as per plan, and NCIS: Hawai’i Season 3 is still confirmed to be part of the fall lineup, with September being the likely release window, at the same time slot every Monday at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS and later on Paramount Plus along with its long-running series, NCIS. 

NCIS: Hawai’i Season 3 Plot: What to expect?

Not much has been revealed about the plot of the upcoming season as it is way too early for the network to reveal such crucial plotlines, which can lead to spoilers. But it is certain that the series will expand on its basic premise, which follows: 

“The world’s most successful television series continues on the seductive shores of Hawai’i as the first female Special Agent in Charge of NCIS Pearl Harbor takes command. 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.” 

The third season is also expected to pick up right after the cliffhanger of the second season finale episode, “Dies Irae,” in which the viewers get to see that when a figure Jane encountered during her time as an officer with the CIA reappears, she and her colleagues seek help to apprehend a killer who’s threatening to destroy everything she has built; with Jane receiving assistance from Sam Hanna of the OSP team of NCIS: Los Angeles. With tough and regretful decisions made, the NCIS: Hawai’i team is facing some major changes that they are yet to know.

Check out the official teaser for the second season’s finale episode to catch up on all the previous events. In case, if you haven’t watched the show yet, it will help you get a feel of the ongoing stories and character development that have held the audience’s attention for so long.

“One of the most beautiful things about working on NCIS: Hawai’i is the show’s ability to bring the franchise together. We have had so much fun spreading the aloha to NCIS and NCIS: LA with the triple crossover. Now, we have the amazing opportunity to bring Sam Hanna to Hawai’i to help the island solve some cases and maybe have a few laughs in the process. Welcome to the ohana, Todd!
