The cast and crew are still filming series 18 which could explain why the show is taking another hiatus.

After the coronavirus pandemic postponed shooting NCIS last year, the creators needed to act quickly to start the series as soon as possible.

However, in order to keep up with the show’s progress, NCIS is continuing to film and so could explain why these random breaks are necessary.

Actor Sean Murray has reminisced about what it was like returning to set for the first time following the delay.

Murray explained: “I remember coming on set that first day, and everyone’s wearing masks plus face shields.

“You’ve got 17 or 18 years of associations in your head – how you walk from the trailer to the set, how you get breakfast – and everything is completely changed.

“It really threw us off for a big loop. We had to adjust; there was a lot of just nodding and pretending that we could hear each other.”

NCIS is available to watch on CBS.
