Before the NCIS Season 19 finale even aired, fans were already anticipating Season 20’s release date. And, after a month of tense anticipation, we have our answer. Season 20 of the hit police procedural will premiere in the fall, just like the previous seasons.
Fans of NCIS, mark your calendars! According to the show’s Twitter account, the series will return on September 19th, 2022. “Grab your gear,” they instructed. “On Monday, September 19, [NCIS] returns with an ALL-NEW season.” You will not want to miss it.” The show will continue to air at 9 p.m.
At the end of Season 19, rumors circulated that iconic characters such as Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) would return for Season 20. These returns are still unknown.
What we do know is that many favorites, including Timothy McGee (Sean Murray), Nick Torres (Wilmer Valderrama), Jessica Knight (Katrina Law), and Jimmy Palmer, have signed on for the new season (Brian Dietzen).
Even “Ducky” Mallard (David McCallum) is set to return, with showrunner Steven D. Binder expressing hope that fans will see more of the beloved medical examiner in future episodes. “I think it’ll be about the same, possibly more,” he told TV Insider.
“I tell David McCallum all the time, ‘You are this magical pixie dust.'” “You’re just this magical being who elevates every scene he’s in with that David McCallum gravitas,” Binder added. “So we’d like to have more.”
The Showrunner of ‘NCIS’ Teases Season 20 Storylines
The plot of NCIS Season 20 is still unknown. However, the showrunner, Steven D. Binder, provided a small teaser to ease the four-month wait for new episodes. Binder revealed in an interview with Parade that the new batch of episodes will take a closer look at our favorite characters’ personal lives.
“We’ll see a little more of their non-work life,” the showrunner explained. “I believe the cases are at the heart of the show.” NCIS is a show about the Naval Cr1m1nal Investigative Service. But anyone who watches the show knows that it’s all about the characters.”
“I always tell new writers that their cases have to work,” he went on. “They must be funny, interesting, in a new arena, clear, with a twist, and exciting all the way through.” And none of it is important.”
“They care about the people on the show and their history,” Binder explained. “You have to get that straight so we can dance in the realm that people care about.”
