What do we know about NCIS season 18?
Production was temporarily suspended in season 17 due to COVID. As a result, CBS did not produce the last two episodes that were initially planned for season 17. These 2 episodes are now likely to carry over to season 18. CBS stated that its fall 2020 schedule should be close to last season’s schedule, but the exact schedule and release dates have not yet been released. It is possible that the timing of season 18will get impacted by the COVID pandemic and be delayed due to production shutdowns in California. Kelly Kahl from CBS, stated that “we’re going to have our shows on in the fall” but it is “very likely” that some shows will get delays: it “might not mean that all our shows, or 90 percent, premiere on CBS official season start date” (Sept 21st 2020). We will update this post as soon as we learn more so stay tuned. CBS has yet to release a trailer for season 18 of NCIS.
