Anticipation builds up surrounding all the action pending on tonight's (March 16) episode of 'NCIS' Season 18. There's a secret dogfighting ring that demands the team's attention, and one particular member lashes out more intensely than the others. But before we get to the enticing episode, there's some bad news fans must brace themselves with. Following tonight's Episode 10, 'NCIS' goes on another three-week-long hiatus in Season 18. Read on to find out when the next episode airs.

According to Futon Critic, 'NCIS' Season 18 returns with Episode 11 all the way next month, on Tuesday, April 6, at its usual 8 pm time slot only on CBS. This comes just a few short weeks after the show returned from yet another similar two-week-long break on March 2, with the episode 'True Believer'. The reason behind these random hiatuses has to be the lack of bulk episodes filmed in advance due to the Covid-19 guidelines in place.

A lot of network shows are also cutting this year's seasons short from the usual 22-24 to 18 episodes max, so taking time off from airing every week makes sense to fill out the span of the few good months the show has to be on air. The upcoming Episode 11, titled 'Gut Punch' is yet to tease a synopsis, so not much can be speculated about what's going to happen. The episode will follow tonight's Watchdog', where "NCIS uncovers a secret dogfighting ring, which leads to an unexpected move by one of the team members."

Fortunately for fans, their wait for a new episode will be met with older ones from this ongoing season 11. Airing next Tuesday on March 23 will be Season 18's Episode 4 'Sunburn' where "McGee and his wife Delilah's (Margo Harshman) Bahamian vacation turns into a high-stakes mission when a case NCIS is tracking of a dead escape room manager has ties to the island. Also, Gibbs fears the worst when his search for Fornell leads to blood."

The next Tuesday, March 30, will air this season's Episode 5 where "Gibbs and Fornell's crusade to find the head of the drug ring responsible for Fornell's daughter Emily's overdose comes to a climax. Also, Gibbs and Vance finally let the team in on a case that has dangerous implications."

'NCIS' season 18 airs on Tuesdays at 8 PM only on CBS.
