The NCIS: Los Angeles return date is going to come up rather quickly. That’s great news, especially for viewers who are enjoying the latest story arcs.

The fall finale took place on the evening of Sunday, December 8, and then everything went on its winter hiatus. As CBS works with the schedule and nights of its shows, NCIS: LA fans can start looking forward to what happens next.

When is NCIS: Los Angeles return date?

We have some great news! An update has been given on the next new episode of the show. It is going to fall on Sunday, January 5. That’s going to be a much shorter wait time than had originally been advertised.

When NCIS: LA finally does return to CBS, it will be part of a new Sunday night block of shows. The network has decided that it wants to place the new FBI spin-off on Tuesday nights.

FBI will air at 9/8c on Tuesday nights, followed by the new show, FBI: Most Wanted, at 10/9c. This means that the NCIS spin-off, NCIS: New Orleans, gets displaced.

NCIS: NOLA will find its new time slot at 10/9 on Sunday nights. That’s not a very envious time slot for any show to deal with, but the network hopes that pairing the two NCIS spin-offs on the same night can help with viewership numbers.

When Sunday, February 16 finally rolls around, NCIS: LA Season 11 will air at 9/8c and new episodes of NCIS: NOLA Season 6 will air at 10/9c. It’s a great way to have crossover episodes more often than in the past, even though it might be frustrating for the New Orleans fans to have to watch on a new night.

Until then, you can enjoy this video of the NCIS: Los Angeles cast giving out superfluous awards to one another.
