CSI Files previously reported that the eighth season of NCIS: Los Angeles would premiere on Sunday, October 2 in its new 8:00pm ET/PT timeslot. However, the network announced yesterday that they’ve moved the premiere up a week. It will now air on Sunday, September 25. There’s an NFL doubleheader that weekend, so NCIS: LA is scheduled to start at 8:30pm ET (7:30pm CT)/8:00pm PT. (Further delays are possible in the ET/CT timezones, depending on football overrun.)
NCIS: LA will have a two-hour season premiere from 8:30-10:30pm ET/8:00-10:00pm PT, and the episodes are called “High-Value Target” and “Belly of the Beast”. CBS posted the official press release yesterday, and here’s the synopsis:
After NCIS fails to locate a mole in the department, Under Secretary of Defense Corbin Duggan (Jackson Hurst) insists on new leadership and takes over the Los Angeles unit from Hetty and Granger. Also, the team travels to Syria to apprehend a High Value Target where one team member is severely injured when the mission goes awry.
“High-Value Target” was written by Executive Producer R Scott Gemmill and directed by Tawnia McKiernan. “Belly of the Beast” was penned by Gemmill and helmed by Terrance O’Hara.
