NCIS series 18 has been unlike any other series, not only for the postponed release date because of the pandemic, but for the number of breaks, there have been between episodes. Typically, there would be be the winter hiatus where the CBS show wouldn’t return until early January and perhaps one or two mini-breaks thrown into the mix during the rest of the series. However, there has been far more than usual this time around and another will be on its way.

Has NCIS been delayed? 

NCIS’s Watchdog aired on Tuesday, March 16 and was particularly memorable as this is the episode where Agent Leroy Gibbs (played by Mark Harmon) was suspended.

He beat up a man involved in a dog-fighting ring and responsible for murdering numerous animals but it ended with Gibbs having to hand in his gun and badge.

Fans had been eagerly awaiting for the follow-up episode to explain what happened next which finally arrived yesterday on Tuesday, April 6.

Sadly, now season 18 will be taking yet another break from CBS.

There will be no new episode of NCIS airing next week, fans will be disappointed to learn.

No official reason has been given as to why there is another break so soon.

But it could just be down to ensuring the show’s schedule remains on track so that the finale airs on Tuesday, May 25 as planned.

This is to line up with NCIS Los Angeles and NCIS New Orleans’ finales which will be shown on Sunday, May 23.

There are supposed to be a total of 16 episodes in season 18, so five more are left to air.

Therefore, the remaining episodes need to be slightly spread out in order to meet this finale date.

Thankfully, the network has already announced when viewers can expect to see episode 12.

NCIS season 18 will return to CBS on Tuesday, April 20 for an episode called Sangre which is Spanish for blood.

The release dates for the episodes following this though hasn’t been revealed.

But as there will be five weeks left before the finale and only four episodes left to show, another break should be expected.

According to NCIS’ IMDB page, there is no release date for episode 13 Misconduct as of yet.

So there very well could be yet another hiatus after airing episode 12 on April 20.

The latest episode Gut Punch saw a welcomed addition to the NCIS cast.

Actor Mark Harmon’s wife Pam Dawber appeared in the show for the first time as investigative journalist Marcie Warren.

She will be part of a four-episode arc but how is she going to impact Gibb’s time away from the office?

NCIS is available to watch on CBS.
