Finally, CBS is airing new episodes. That is because last year’s SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes meant that NCIS Season 21 filming would be delayed. Now that the new season has already premiered, fans may want to know how long this season of the CBS military procedural drama will be. How many episodes will NCIS Season 21 have?

Here is the answer.

How Many Episodes Will NCIS Season 21 Have?

NCIS Season 21 premiered with the episode “Algún Día.” Best of all, lots of viewers came back to watch the team finish up the Season 20 cliffhanger episode. Now, fans want to know what is going to happen this season. Wilmer Valderrama recently spoke to EW about the upcoming season. This includes how many episodes and what fans should expect.

First of all, the actor who portrays Nick Torres revealed there will be 10 episodes in Season 21. He revealed, “I think these 10 episodes are going to be very surprising.”That includes the one that airs on Monday that is a tribute to Ducky, David McCallum. He also revealed that things are going to be “personal.”

I am very excited because this is a rare opportunity where a show that by the grace and the love of the fans has the runway to try things. We’re going to swing in directions that are a lot more personal and a lot more high-concept. It’s still Very much grounded in the mothership. We’re not doing unnatural stuff for our characters, but we are really exploring storylines that I think could really help the following seasons.

Sounds like they are setting up some new story ideas that will pay off later. Although he did not share any information on Agent Rose, portrayed by Kim Matula. Now that she is hired by the NCIS cyber division, that new character could certainly bring in some different storylines.
