New NCIS Season 18 episodes are airing in March as CBS rolls out some new content for viewers.

The first new episode may be a big one, with hints that it could be the final appearance for one of the big stars.

Having three straight weeks of new episodes on Tuesday nights will definitely come as a treat for viewers that just dealt with another winter hiatus for the show.

Hopefully, we aren’t in the middle of the final season for star Mark Harmon, who has been rumored to be thinking about leaving.

More world of NCIS news

For anyone who hasn’t heard yet, CBS has canceled NCIS: New Orleans. Season 7 will be its last on the air, and the show is scheduled to air its series finale in May.

In place of NCIS: NOLA on the fall 2021 schedule, it appears that CBS is moving forward with a new NCIS spin-off based in Hawaii. That could provide some fun new characters for fans of the NCIS family of shows.

NCIS airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on CBS.
