For nearly 20 years, Tuesdays have meant one thing: new episodes of NCIS. The beloved police procedural has held the Tuesday 8/7c timeslot since it first debuted in September 2003, an honor that few long-running series can boast. Not even ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy has maintained a single, Thursday night timeslot over the years!
Unfortunately, every once in a while, the CBS schedule shifts, and we’re denied a new installment of NCIS shenanigans, often without warning. Is NCIS new tonight? When will NCIS Season 18 return with new episodes? Is tonight one of the dreaded NCIS bye weeks?! Here’s everything you need to know.
IS NCIS NEW TONIGHT?
Alas, NCIS will not air a new episode tonight. Instead, CBS will air a re-run (Season 18, Episode 4, “Sunburn”) during the drama’s normal timeslot at 8/7c.
WHEN WILL THERE BE NCIS NEW EPISODES ON CBS?
According to CBS, fans will have to wait two full weeks to see a new episode of NCIS. After airing an episode last week, on March 16, the drama is taking a three-week hiatus and returning with Season 18, Episode 11, “Gut Punch,” on Tuesday, April 6.
HOW MANY EPISODES OF NCIS SEASON 18 ARE THERE?
Typically, NCIS seasons contain at least 20 episodes, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CBS trimmed down the season order to accomodate delays and shifting schedules. As a result, NCIS Season 18 will contain closer to 16 episodes, but no more than 18.
WHERE TO WATCH NCIS SEASON 18 ONLINE
When NCIS returns on April 6, cable customers can watch live on CBS, or via CBS.com and the CBS app with a valid cable log-in. Additionally, you can find a CBS live stream with an active subscription to Hulu + Live TV, YouTube TV, and fuboTV, all of which are offering free trials to new customers.
Not ready to commit to a full package? Fans looking for a CBS-specific lineup can also watch NCIS Season 18 on Paramount+, ViacomCBS’ rebranded streaming service. The new service is currently offering two pricing tiers, both of which offer access to a live CBS stream and next-day episodic streaming: a premium plan for $10/month, and a $6/month ad-supported plan.
