CBS has revealed the NCIS start date.

This is news from the network that fans have wanted for months.

Two Hollywood strikes delayed everything, with most primetime dramas going on hiatus.

It meant months of repeated content on CBS, where the network showcased classic episodes.

But new content is on the way.

The Writers Strike ended with a new deal in place, and the actors and actresses recently struck a new contract with the studios.

NCIS Season 21 to begin filming soon

Filming for the new season of NCIS will begin at the end of November or the beginning of December.

Production will begin filming after Thanksgiving before taking a break toward the end of December. They will pick things up again at the beginning of January.

When is the NCIS start date for new episodes?

CBS announced that the first episode of NCIS Season 21 airs on Monday, February 12.

NCIS takes back the 9/8c timeslot and will air new episodes after the earlier comedy block.

The Neighborhood and Bob ♥ Abishola begins airing at 8/7c, then NCIS at 9/8c, ending with NCIS: Hawai’i at 10/9c.

This might allow the network to air a consecutive string of new NCIS episodes until the season runs out in the spring.

Fans should expect a much shorter season (fewer episodes) for the hit dramas, which means less filler as Season 21 plays out.
