NCIS: Hawaii Season 3 is not coming to CBS in July 2023

Eyes are on when we’ll see Jane Tennant and her team return to solve more crimes. When will NCIS: Hawaii Season 3 premiere on CBS?

While Maggie is back on the run, the NCIS: Hawaii Season 2 finale didn’t end with any major cliffhangers. Nothing in the way of the NCIS Season 20 and FBI: International Season 2 finales. That doesn’t stop us from wanting more.

We know that Sam Hana will step in to help with cases here and there. LL Cool J has signed on as a recurring special guest during the third season, although it’s not clear just how many episodes we’ll get to see him in. That is up in the air with the writers strike at the moment.

The bad news is we won’t get to see the team return just yet. NCIS: Hawaii Season 3 will not premiere in July. That shouldn’t be too surprising considering the broadcast networks don’t bring big shows back this time of year, but it is still somewhat disappointing. We want more!

When will NCIS: Hawaii Season 3 premiere on CBS?

Some good news is that CBS is happy with the show’s performance. It will return as part of the fall schedule on Mondays at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The show will follow new episodes of NCIS again.

Now for the bad news. Usually, we would say the premiere will be sometime at the end of September 2023, but that’s not going to happen this year. We’re getting another schedule like the pandemic year by the looks of things.

The writers strike continues, and that’s now pushing back production dates. The writers needed to be back to work in June for a July production date to bring September premieres. There is still a chance we’ll get to see the new season in 2023, but it all depends on how long the strike continues. It will also depend on whether the actors go on strike too or not.

NCIS: Hawaii is available to stream on Paramount+.
