The long-running navy crime-fighting drama “NCIS” has many fans who are excited to see what Season 21 has to offer. It’s reasonable to assume that a large portion of those viewers are curious to learn the truth about whether or not they will see it before 2023 comes to an end.

The news that “NCIS” had been renewed for a 21st season, set to premiere in the 2023–2024 season, was made public in February. Unfortunately, the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes have changed that. Sometimes, game-changing ideas necessitate the necessary compromises, and discussions over residuals and AI constraints have resulted in a postponement of “NCIS” Season 21. The new episodes won’t be available to viewers until a later date in 2024, which is still to be established. For the fall 2023 schedule, the program will continue to appear on Mondays at 9 p.m. CBS will screen reruns for the remainder of the year.

While the situation isn’t ideal, viewers will have the new spin-off, “NCIS: Sydney,” to keep them busy. When 2024 does arrive, to make the wait a bit more worthwhile, “NCIS” will celebrate a magnificent milestone that longtime fans won’t want to miss.

NCIS Season 21 is a record-breaking affair

Even though the franchise may not be as popular as Marvel or “Star Wars,” “NCIS” and its many offshoots have proven to be a force to be reckoned with on the small screen, with “NCIS” Season 21 ushering in a slew of achievements solidifying the navy crime fighting saga’s place among TV’s longstanding elite.

When Season 21 finally airs, “NCIS” will end the decades-long reign held by “Gunsmoke” and set a record for CBS as the network’s longest-running scripted series. The only primetime dramas to air for more seasons all-time are NBC’s “Law & Order: SVU” and “Law & Order.” Further illustrating the property’s longevity is arguably an even bigger accomplishment. During “NCIS” Season 21, the franchise will release its 1,000th overall episode. That figure includes not only the original flagship show but also the plethora of location-based spin-offs over the years.

It’s no secret that the show has gone through a number of notable cast changes and suffered ups and downs with its fan base over the years. However, “NCIS” has managed to surpass expectations as one of the longest-running primetime dramas by outlasting several of its rivals. To what extent the franchise develops will be intriguing to observe.
