After more than a month of waiting for the new episode of "NCIS: Los Angeles," fans are asking when the hiatus will end for the famous procedural series.
The last episode that CBS aired of the series was the 13th episode of Season 11 last January 12. It has only aired 2 episodes since January 5 after it came back from the holiday break.
Fans expected the series to return on its usual time slot last Sunday. However, it was replaced by repeat episodes of "NCIS" and "FBI." Express UK speculates that this is because the 2020 Academy Awards aired on ABC at the same time that night.
However, "NCIS: LA" fans would be very happy to know that the series' creators have officially announced the return of its next episode this coming Sunday, February 16. The show's Episode 14 of Season 11 will be called Commitment Issues.
The episode will also be available on CBS All Access, CBS' online streaming platform after it has aired on television.
The new episode will reunite the characters of the show in a new case, as the team deals with murder and Chris O'Donell's character Callen continues his search for his former girlfriend.
According to the synopsis of the episode, the team will investigate a murder that happened at a spoken poetry event that killed a Naval warfare engineer while Callen employs the assistance of Renee Felice Smith's character Nell to assist him in searching for Anna his ex-girlfriend who is played by Bar Paly. Thus, leaving fans to wonder if the episode will include romance in time for Valentine's day.
The famed show also announced the appearance of Scottie Thompson as next week's guest star. "NCIS" fans will recall her playing Jean Benoit in the series but she will be making a trip to LA to play the new character Sarah Raines who will be brought on the new case from the Defence Intelligence Agency.
