Is NCIS new tonight on CBS? A look towards finale, season 18 hopes

NCISIs NCIS new tonight on CBS? Within this particular piece, we’re looking at answering that question and also giving you a sense of what is to come.

The bad news that we have to share in this paragraph is twofold. First, it’s true that there is no new installment of the Mark Harmon series tonight. Beyond that, there is only one more installment left for the season. Because of the current health crisis filming was shut down a little bit earlier than expected, and it remains unclear what is going to happen with some of those stories. Some could be brought over to season 18 (which hasn’t been confirmed just yet, but we’re hopeful), though they may be changed slightly to better reflect what is going on in the real world.

What is especially notable about that group of episodes is that one of them is going to be the big 400th installment — a cause very much worth celebrating.

So what is going to be on next week’s finale? If you haven’t heard too much about “The Arizona” yet, let’s go ahead and hand down the official synopsis courtesy of the folks from CBS:

“The Arizona” – The team tries to verify the identity of Joe Smith (Christopher Lloyd), who claims he served on the U.S.S. Arizona during the attack on Pearl Harbor, and wants to be buried there upon his death, on NCIS, Tuesday, April 14 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

While we think that this is going to be an emotionally resonant episode, we foresee it being more about Gibbs and the guest star in Lloyd than any huge character development for our series regulars. They were probably saving a lot of those big moments for the planned end of the season … which we now have to wait a while longer in order to see.
