NCIS Season 20 Episode 1 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where To Watch

NCIS Season 20 Episode 1

NCIS revolves around a fictional team of special agents from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, which conducts criminal investigations involving the US Navy and Marine Corps.

Having run successfully for 19 seasons, expect season 20 to really hit the ground running. With Agent Parker framed for murder, he’s gone into hiding, with his team promising to try and clear his name.

However, the FBI are after him and it seems like Parker’s ex-wife may have her own nefarious scheme. Expect season 20 to see the team try to prove Parker’s innocence before expanding out and focusing on the characters’ personal lives alongside episodic cases. Expect to see a lot more of the team’s non-work life and plenty of crossover events with NCIS Hawai’i too!

If you’ve been following this one over the weeks, you may be curious to find out when the next episode is releasing. Well, wonder no more!

Here is everything you need to know about NCIS Season 20 Episode 1 including its release date, time and where you can watch this.

Where Can I Watch NCIS Season 20?

NCIS is available to watch on the CBS network, as well as streaming online too. This is an exclusive original series, with the service also available to those in the US online via the CBS All Access site. That costs $5.99 per month with “limited” adverts. For an ad-free you’re looking at that increasing to $9.99.

NCIS Season 20 Episode 1 Release Date

NCIS Season 20 Episode 1 will release on Monday 19th September at 9pm (ET). However for those in the UK and internationally, there’s no official release date for this one yet.

NCIS should drop with subtitles available whilst watching on catch-up. Episode 1 is expected to be roughly 42 minutes long, which is consistent with the time-frame for the rest of the series.

How Many Episodes Will NCIS Season 20 Have?

Although CBS haven’t officially announced the number of episodes, given most of the seasons have run for over 20 episodes, with an average of around 24, we’re predicting it’s going to be about the same. So using the provisional sum of 24 episodes for this season, expect there to be 23 more episodes to go after this one.

Is There A Trailer For NCIS Season 20?

There is not, unfortunately! However, CBS have put out a sneak promo for the first episode of season 20, which you can find below:
