A new season of the top-rated drama on television has already been ordered at CBS.
The bad news is that production is at a standstill due to the ongoing Writers Strike.
Writers Guild of America members are campaigning for better pay and benefits.
And now the news has come out that SAG members have also approved a strike.
SAG is the Screen Actors Guild, representing the actors and actresses who star in most hit shows.
Breaking all that down, the NCIS writers are on strike, and most NCIS cast members could soon follow suit.
NCIS Season 21 is close to getting postponed by CBS

New episodes of NCIS were supposed to arrive in September of 2023.
If the strikes end soon, that’s still a possibility.
There is still enough time for the writers, cast, and crew to get back to work on NCIS Season 21.
But the clock is ticking down, and soon CBS will have to release its full updated schedule for the 2023-2024 television season.
A heavy hint about what will happen next came when CBS postponed Big Brother 25.
The hit reality competition show will now air many episodes in the fall.
It was also announced that Survivor and The Amazing Race will be 90 minutes.
Regarding that new season, a Survivor 45 cast list was leaked.
Since reality and game shows don’t require the same amount of writing as scripted dramas, the networks could rely heavily upon them for content in the fall.
