‘NCIS: Hawai’i’ Fans Are Sounding Off on Show’s Mid-Season Hiatus

by Courtney Blackann

“NCIS: Hawai’i'” announced it was taking a few weeks off of airing new episodes and now fans are losing it. It’s difficult enough to wait for new episodes weekly amid the streaming-age, but nearly a month for the next episode is nearly impossible. And the fans aren’t being quiet about it.

In a Twitter post, the show announced its mid-season break with a funny GIF from the show letting fans know everything will be fine. The show is set to return to its usual Monday night programming on November 29.

“We’re off for a few weeks but don’t worry. #NCISHawaii will be back with a new episode on 11/29,” the post states.

While some fans were understanding, stating that the wait would be worth it, others shared sad-faced GIFs.

Further, one fan tweeted, “Gonna watch all the episodes again and again to cope.” Several others simply shared the “cry face” emojis with one person asking, “Whyyyyyy???”

Though the break will be tough, just like the show tweeted, “this will be okay.” The CBS show airs Monday nights 10/9 Central.

“NCIS: Hawai’i” Star Discusses Move Across Country

While there are plenty worse places to be filming than the tropical island of Hawaii, it’s still pretty isolated from the rest of the United States. Which is why “NCIS: Hawai’i'” star Vanessa Lachey made sure it was a family decision before she and husband Nick Lachey moved their family to the island.

“It was a talk that I had with my husband and I said, ‘What do you think?’ and…he’s like, ‘Hawaii, umm, it could be worse.’ And he was like, ‘This is awesome!’” She also says, speaking to Entertainment Tonight: “And I’ll never forget him saying, ‘This is your time and you’ve been there in the past for me.’”

Lachey stars as Jane Tennant, Special Agent in charge of NCIS Pearl Harbor on the CBS show. Her family’s support means everything to her and she’s happy that she could accept the role and transition smoothly to Hawaii.

Further, the actress says that the two share in parenting responsibilities despite their own projects. They want to make sure that family comes first. In order to do this, the couple take turns being home while the other parent is working.

“So this is working. This is a thing that would take our whole family out of the mainland and bring them very far away, and he was on board to support me. I told the kids and they were gung ho because they think that Hawaii is water slides, play. I ask them all the time, ‘Are you happy or no?’ And they’re like, yeah! So they’re very happy here, they love it here. They’re island babies. I didn’t even realize I had island babies until I brought them here.”
