How many episodes are in NCIS season 20?

CBS hasn’t yet officially confirmed exactly how many episodes are going to make up NCS season 20.

In recent years, there has been a shake-up in terms of the drama’s episode count due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Production companies around the world were immediately shut down to prevent the spread of COVID-19 which meant series, such as NCIS, were shorter than normal.

Series 18 which aired in 2020 came out with just 16 episodes, with season 19 consisting of 21 instalment.

NCIS’ universe expanded yet again earlier this year with the premiere of its third spin-off NCIS Hawaii.

In March, Agents Nick Torres (played by Wilmer Valderrama) and Jessica Knight (Katrina Law) flew to the island state for the first time to work on a cold case.

Torres and NCIS Hawaii’s Agent Jane Tennant (Vanessa Lachey) had previously worked together and when she called to tell him there was a new lead on their old investigation, he jumped at the chance to get stuck in.

This time around, it will be Jane and computer whizz Ernie Malik (Jason Antoon) who are going to be visiting Washington DC.

The end of season 19 saw Agent Alden Parker (Gary Cole) framed for a m****r he didn’t commit.

His colleagues knew he was innocent and so agreed to help him clear his name as Parker went on the run with his ex-wife Vivian Kolchak (Teri Polo).

They needed some help though so ask Jane and Ernie to join them but are they going to be able to work out who is behind it all?

A synopsis for this crossover special has been released, giving fans a taste of what’s to come.

The description reads: “Parker is still on the run with his ex-wife Vivian, so the team investigates who might have a vendetta against him in hopes of clearing Parker’s name.

“Enlisting the help of Tennant and Computer Specialist Ernie Malick, who are in town meeting with Director Vance in preparation for a global military exercise, the team tracks their prime suspect, The Raven.”

NCIS season 20 premieres on Monday, September 19, on CBS in the USA. A UK release date hasn’t been announced.
