NCIS season 18 episode 7 didn’t air in the usual weekly slot. When is the air date? Fortunately, it has been confirmed.
A promising year of TV is well underway and audiences have been working through season 18 of NCIS.
Created by Donald P. Bellisario and Don McGill, this American police procedural series served as a spin-off of I and premiered back in September 2003, over on CBS.
Since then, this episodic portrait of special agents from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service has earned new fans with each passing season.
The eighteenth began airing in November 2020 and enthusiasts have been tuning in weekly.
Although, viewers were surprised to check in and find a repeat of episode 6 on Tuesday, February 2nd 2021.
So, when does NCIS season 18 episode 7 air?
NCIS season 18 episode 7 air date
- NCIS season 18 episode 7 will air on Tuesday, February 9th 2021 at the usual time.
It is titled ‘The First Day’ and is directed by James Whitmore Jr. and written by Margaret Rose Lester.
Fans can expect it to follow on from ‘1mm’, which saw Bishop and Torres follow up a lead on arms smuggling. They were drawn into a shootout at the home of a former sheriff and ‘The First Day’ should hopefully fill in the next chapter of their efforts.
It’s uncertain why CBS aired repeats on Tuesday. Nevertheless, the show will be back on the air in no time.
NCIS season 18: How many episodes?
Season 18 of NCIS will be made up of 16 episodes in total.
So, it’s actually a shorter season than audiences have grown accustomed to over the years, as seasons 7 to 16 were made up of 24, while season 17 had 20.
As for what else to expect this season, we have already learnt that Maria Bello has announced she will be leaving the show, and we may learn more about her exit in episode 7.
She has portrayed Special Agent Jacqueline “Jack” Sloane for three seasons of NCIS.
Why is Maria Bello leaving NCIS?
As highlighted by Cinema Blend, Maria’s departure from NCIS marks the ending of her original contract, which included season 15 through to 17.
However, season 17 was cut short ahead of its 400th episode, meaning that Jack wasn’t given the farewell she deserved.
Thus, we can expect to say goodbye to the character this season instead.
Considering why she left, no reason has been explained. Although, considering she’s writing and producing the forthcoming movie The Woman King, perhaps she simply wished to pursue other avenues and opportunities rather than continue on NCIS.
