CBS confirmed NCIS Season 18 in May 2020. NCIS is an American police procedural action drama created by Donald P. Bellisario and Don McGill. As of 2020, the show is the 7th-longest-running scripted U.S. primetime TV series overall. The show’s original name was ‘Navy NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service,’ which was later shortened to ‘NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service.’ Finally, it was renamed to the current name ‘NCIS.’
NCIS is a spin-off from JAG. It first premiered on September 23. 2003 on CBS. NCIS follows a fictional NCIS Major Case Response Team in Washington, D.C. The NCIS, in real life, investigates all major felonies within the Department of the Navy. The show shows Naval officers’ struggles and routines in an authentic manner.
What will the plot of NCIS Season 18 be?
The last four episodes of Season 17 are still pending. This left the audience at a cliffhanger because they don’t know how the seventeenth season will end. However, based on the episodes that aired, we can expect a new outing. The showrunners Frank Cardea and Steven D Binder revealed that this season would have an exciting script and show how Gibbs and Ducky met. So, if you had a question about their story, you will probably get an answer this season.
We will also see what will Bishop decide for his life and the romantic story of Gibbs and Sloane. Ziva’s comeback came as a shock to the characters and the viewers. So, in season 18, we can see the reunion between Ziva and Tony.
There are a lot of cameos we have seen in multiple seasons that needed proper conclusion. In season 18, NCIS will mark the celebratory 400th episode. So, we want that the makers also give us something to celebrate. Hence, the characters we want to return are:
- Michael Weatherly as Tony DiNizzo
- Cote de Pablo as Ziva David
- Margo Harshman as Delilah Fielding
- Michelle Pierce as Breena Palmer
- Joe Spano as Tobias Fornell
- Mark Harmon as Agent Leroy Gibbs
- Sean Murray as Timothy McGee
- Wilmer Valderrama as Nick Torres
- Emily Wickersham as Ellie Bishop
When will it release?
Finally, we want to know when the eighteenth edition to NCIS release. An exact date has not been announced, but usually, the show airs in September every year. We know that the show is on the current CBS’ schedule. However, filming has not begun. Moreover, the cast of the show comes under the age limit that is more prone to the COVID-19. So, the makers have to ensure complete safety on the set. That can take a while. If they start filming now, we can expect the show to come in September as usual, but it seems pretty unlikely.
As soon as we get any information, we will update you guys. Till then, you can watch the previous seasons on CBS All Access.
