All of the fans of this American police procedural drama television series are wondering what episode count the next season, season 20 of NCIS, will have. NCIS is the United States Department of the Navy's primary federal law enforcement agency that follows the life of a fictional team of Special Agents investigating any criminal activity involving the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps and their families.
The team in the program is based at the Washington Navy Yard in Washington, DC, and is led by Supervisory Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs, a former United States Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant Scout Sniper.
Everyone has been wondering what the episode count will be from the next season since the premiere of its nineteenth season on CBS on September 20, 2021, and its closing 21st episode on May 23, 2022.
Since the number of episodes will help the viewers anticipate when they will be able to see their favorite characters on screen, knowing the episode count is of great importance. Also, knowing when will the next season premiere of NCIS 20 will take place.
In some years, NCIS airs 22-24 episodes in one season. However, in a couple of years, the norm has changed. For instance, in March 2020, CBS had to air a shorter-than-planned NCIS season. Consequently, the upcoming seasons were also shorter than the previous ones.
With everything set up right now, most shows are expected to broadcast the appropriate amount of episodes they used to before the epidemic. Although NCIS was not able to stream the normal amount of episodes in season 19, the show is expected to do so in season 20. Sometimes, producing for 24 episodes also puts a lot of pressure on the show's creators and developers; that's why many producers don't opt for this episode count anymore.
NCIS Season 20 will air on CBS on Monday, September 19, and you may watch it on Paramount+.
