KEY POINTS

  • "NCIS: New Orleans" Season 7 is taking a hiatus due to Thanksgiving holiday
  • The show will resume its run after two weeks
  • The next episode is titled "We All Fall…"

Several television shows have taken a short break due to the Thanksgiving holiday. "NCIS: New Orleans" happens to be just one of those many fan-favorites that will be on a hiatus this week.

The entire "NCIS" franchise will not air new episodes due to the festivities. CBS is making adjustments to its usual television schedule for coverage of Thanksgiving and holiday events. While "NCIS" and its first spin-off "NCIS: LA" is scheduled to return next week, "NCIS: New Orleans" will continue to be on hiatus for two weeks. Viewers will have to wait a bit longer before they can enjoy a crime-solving thriller featuring Scott Bakula as Dwayne Cassius Pride, Vanessa Ferlito as Tammy, Necar Zadegan as Hannah, and Charles Michael Davis as Carter.

"NCIS: New Orleans" Season 7 Episode 4 is titled "We All Fall…." The network has not yet teased spoilers or released a synopsis for it. Therefore, the storyline for the upcoming segment remains unpredictable. But fans can expect the show to return with an intense full-throttle action storyline and delve deeper into some personal storylines.

The show makers have also integrated the pandemic into the show's plot.

"So we took one of the storylines, which was Hannah dealing with an abusive boss in her work world...We brought that back. We kind of tied that up in a really nice way in this season. In Episode 4, things like my daughter getting married and those kinds of things we just took what's going on in the world and we pushed the wedding because of the pandemic," Bakula said about Season 7 in a recent interview with TV Guide.

Fans can also expect plenty of drama revolving around Tammy, who is adapting to her new relationship. She is clearly struggling to accept the reality of her new relationship. In addition, with Chelsea Field becoming a series regular, Pride and Rita are going to spend more time together as their relationship blossoms.

"And I think that Rita really brings a side of Pride that, you know, you don't see all the time, it's just a softer and more personal and a little more vulnerable side of Pride," Field told TV Guide.

In the previous episode, titled "One of Our Own," the show dealt with issues related to police reform. The team tackled the murder mystery of an NOPD officer and dealt with some corrupt officers.

"NCIS: New Orleans" Season 7 Episode 4 will air on Dec. 13 at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
