Is There Any Chance For Ncis Season 21 In September?

We are left in a frenzy as the Season 20 finale ended on a massive cliffhanger. We don’t have a clue in the world about who was at the receiving end of the gunshot. Was it a special agent? Looks like the only way we will be getting any answers is through the inception of Season 21, which, unfortunately, will take a while to make a comeback.

With the departure of Mark Harmon from NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigation Service Major Case Response Team) after a spectacular two-decade run, viewers were concerned about what would happen next. Some even questioned the series’ persistence in light of the departure of its primary character. However, the 21st of February was a fantastic day! Season 21 has been renewed, and fans couldn’t be more overjoyed. The perfect cliffhanger at the end of Season 1 appears to have been the decisive cause for another season’s renewal.

Ever since the unanimous renewal announcement in February 2023, a lot of events have transpired, causing a delay in production as well as production-related announcements for NCIS Season 21. Here, we will dive into the updates and events that followed the miraculous renewal day of February 21 and then tread into what Season 21 will serve on the piping-hot NCIS plate!

NCIS Season 21 Release Date Updates: Are There Any Hopes For September?

As previously stated, the series has been renewed for Season 21, so the notorious procedural crime drama will return to the big screen. The big question, though, is WHEN?

When CBS revealed their initial fall schedule and NCIS Season 21 cut, it seemed like our wishes were fulfilled! It won the Monday 9:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. time slot. However, the first delight of rebirth and return was fleeting. We are now into the third month of the WGA strike, and no one knows when it will finish. We do not have a script for NCIS Season 21 if the writers are not available. As a result, we cannot realistically expect NCIS Season 2 Episode 1 to debut this fall, or even in 2023.

Moreover, it is befuddling to comprehend how a fall release will follow. Technically, for a fall release, the writing should be wrapped up by summer and in post-production before fall, but that cannot be the case since the writers are on strike. Hence, a more calculated prediction would lead us to a mid-2024 release at best!

However, CBS then clarified that they will not release NCIS Season 21 this fall! Instead, they are going to air reruns of the show on the CBS network and have picked the slot on Mondays, 9/8c. For the time being, we urge the readers to check out the new revised fall CBS’s 2023–24 schedule, which, on a positive note, includes the NCIS 20th anniversary marathon that will air on September 25, 2023, as a bonus for the lack of NCIS content. For the time being, we also urge the readers to check out the new revised fall CBS’s 2023–24 schedule, which includes the following shows: At least we have something to look forward to this fall, even if it doesn’t mean we get an entirely new season. This might be the perfect opportunity for you to re-watch the earlier 20 seasons of NCIS!

NCIS Season 21 Cast: Who Will Reprise Their Roles For The New Season?

Since the writing for Season 21 is on a hiatus, we have not received any official announcements on additions or deductions to the cast. One thing we know for sure. Mark Harmon will not be returning for Season 21. In addition to this, some rumors are saying they will be bringing back Michael Weatherly in Season 21, as was done before in Seasons 16 and 17, as well as Cote De Pablo!

TV Fanatic reports,

“Bosses are tearing their hair out over their terms.” This is in tune with the demands the actors are placing for their return to the show. So we will need to wait and watch over the developments that take place in this context. Other than that, this is the cast list of who we can expect to watch in the reruns that CBS has scheduled for the fall season:

NCIS Season 21 Spoilers: What To Expect In The New Season?

Cliffhangers are fantastic for building tension until we have to wait over a year for solutions. We had a similar problem with NCIS due to the fatal cliffhanger it left us with at the end of Season 21, and we will most likely have to wait until 2024.

Let us deviate from this foreboding mood and take issues into our own hands. We’ve compiled a list of questions that NCIS Season 21 must explain in order for us to understand how Season 20 ended with an almost successful terrorist operation.

Did Nick Torres pull the trigger?

We did hear a gunshot before the screen blacked out, and Nick was holding a man at gunpoint while he mumbled the words, ” I will kill you.” If he did pull the trigger on the man, it seems like Torres’ career in NCIS seems bleak! It might butt him out of his uniform if he killed the man, no matter who he was.

This is the most asked question on the internet after NCIS Season 20 ended, so it is only fitting that NCIS Season 21 will pick up from this cliffhanger and answer the burning question.

Who is the man who Torres holds at gunpoint?

Again, this is a pivotal question that will determine the fate of Season 21. From what we saw in the Season 20 finale, Nick Torres knew the man he was holding at gunpoint. And for Nick to be holding a man at gunpoint meant that there were layers of secret buried underneath the surface. Here is what happened. Nick went undercover in prison and befriended an inmate who claimed an old friend had betrayed his family, stolen their money, and was responsible for him being in jail. Nick believed the tale, calling his sister to say, “I found him.” He confronted that man, who begged for mercy, saying he was sorry, but Nick snapped he and his family had trusted the guy, and they ruined them.
The key question is who this man is and what he did to Nick’s family. The likely explanation is he stole their money, but the hate Nick has hints it was even deeper than that. Fans are eager to see just what horrible crime this man committed to drive Nick to such an extreme action. Looks like Season 21 might grab a shovel and help us dig into the past Nick for a change. This might be a slight detour from the usual case-fitted crime-solving episodes to a deeper look into the characters. After 20 years, I think it is fitting to get to know the roots beneath our heroic special agents and make them more vulnerable.

Will Parker’s romance bud in Season 21?
Senator Miller, a popular figure in Season 20, was linked to the ring of Russian spies that the crew was investigating. Miller was discovered staying in Parker’s house, which was an unusual turn of events. All indications pointed to this being a one-night stand, but fans would like to see the Boss in a fresh relationship, with the squad nudging him now and again. It might give the Season 21 plot a more comedic twist.
