What is the new release date of the Season 14 finale on CBS? Here’s what we know so far.

Unfortunately, the moment that the loyal fans always dread arriving has landed upon NCIS: Los Angeles. As one of the NCIS franchise’s most beloved squads is finally saying goodbye! On January 20, 2023, it was announced that the first successful spin-off series of NCIS would end after the fourteenth season. If you recall, it was previously revealed that the series finale would premiere on Sunday, May 14, 2023, on CBS.

However, recent reports have confirmed that the highly anticipated series finale has been shifted and expanded to a two-hour event, which is far more exciting for a show that is ending after 14 seasons. The series finale of NCIS: Los Angeles Season 14 will now air a week later, on Tuesday, May 21, 2023, at 10:00 p.m. EST on CBS and later on Paramount Plus following the premiere of East New York.

Speaking to, showrunner R. Scott Gemmill admitted that the fact that the show has been running for 14 seasons has made it “more difficult” to craft a satisfying ending, “because there’s so much expectation, and how do you live up to that?” His solution was to approach the series finale “character by character” and try to put everyone in “a very good place in their lives” by the time the show ended. “And hopefully the fans will be pleased. “I think the final scene is a lot of fun and hopeful.”
