Looks like 'NIS: New Orleans' is back to teasing fans all over again because right when you'd think the threat is over, the show decides to go on yet another random hiatus. This time, NOLA keeps us on the edge by randomly not airing for a whole month, you've been warned. Not only is there no new 'NCIS: NOLA' episode airing next week, there also won't be one airing for the week after that, or anything new in January that is.

But worry not, the show is definitely returning from its hiatus for brand new episodes in the ongoing Season 7. Read on to find out when the next episode airs.

'NCIS: New Orleans' Season 17 returns with its Episode 8 all the way on Sunday, February 14, at a new time — 10 pm, on CBS. The episode tentatively being labeled as 'New Time Period' on show listings is yet to release an official synopsis, but based on where the latest episode of 'NCIS: NOLA' takes us, some speculations can be drawn. First of all, the title has to be 'Leda and the Swan: Part II'. Just makes sense. 

Also, the whole concept of 'New Time Period' does bring back memories of the alt-reality flashback that the parent show 'NCIS' had done in Season 17, where the cast of the show played different characters from the past. Is that why the synopsis of Episode 7 teases what sounds like the perfect set up for Sebastian Lund to commence a relationship or spark a connection outside his work?

Or do we finally get to see Tammy Gregorio's new girlfriend Cara as more than just a one-time appearance cameo? With questions galore, what also piques the curiosity is why 'NCIS: NOLA' is taking a hiatus right now.

Our best guess is that the series is once again trying to space out its 22 episode season with random gaps and repeats in between. It could also be the stalled production due to the pandemic hitting hard on pretty much everything, so our beloved cast and crew are taking some extra time off before they return with yet another banger of an episode. Meanwhile, here's a little something to brush your memory up for the episode that will be the latest one for a while now.

In Season 7 Episode 7: "When a Navy therapist with a high level of security clearance is murdered, Pride and the team discover that she was working around the system to get justice for victims of sexual assault. Also, Carter's mother confronts him when he refuses to talk to the FBI for a background check on her behalf, and Sebastian starts to form a bond with a key witness who was hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic."

Starting February 14, 'NCIS: New Orleans' Season 7 will air on Sundays at 10 pm on CBS.
