The NCIS: Los Angeles season 13 premiere has been delayed due to an NFL Football overrun. The show, which was supposed to air tonight at 9:00 eastern will now air at 9:16. NCIS: Los Angeles is one of the many shows affected by the change. But thankfully, it’s not delayed for too long and it’s only in certain areas.

“Due to late #NFL game, #CBS shows delayed 16 min in the states of WI, MN, MI, IA, IL, parts of MO, ND & IN + the Philadelphia & Charlotte areas  New start times: all NEW episodes #60Minutes 7:16ET/6:16CT #TheEqualizer 8:16ET #NCISLA 9:16ET #SEALTeam 10:16ET,” an official tweet for the CBS Twitter account reads.

Fans have been waiting all summer for NCIS: Los Angeles to return. The season 12 finale saw Hetty return and Eric and Nell leave. Season 13 has plenty in store for all of the characters.

What to Expect from ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ Season 13

NCIS: Los Angeles season 13 will see plenty of personal and case-related drama.

We can expect a lot between Kensi and Deeks this year as they continue the arduous process of trying to grow their family. The two really tried last season but were unsuccessful. Now, the potential of adoption may be brought to the table. The two will have to navigate what growing a family and adopting means for the future of their careers as they both work in dangerous fields.

Speaking of danger, David Kessler is back out on the streets following a Presidential pardon. Kessler is likely going to play a major role this season, endangering Kensi all while she tries to grow her family.

Meanwhile, Callen is going to dig deeper into his past and see just how much Hetty has been hiding from him. The storyline was alluded to in the season 12 finale, and you can definitely expect more.

Fans missed Hetty last year, but actress Linda Hunt is back this year. Hetty will play a pivotal role in the beginning of the season, going on a mission that winds up getting everyone involved. We’ll see a lot more about where Hetty was last year and why she was there.

Hetty is also going to routinely bump heads with Admiral Kilbride. Kilbride actor Gerald McRaney has been promoted to a full-time cast member, and Kilbride and Hetty are going to have a great dynamic. The two are both quite stubborn. While Kilbride will technically be Hetty’s superior, that of course won’t stop her from challenging him.

Barring any football-related delays, NCIS: Los Angeles will premiere every Sunday Night at 8 Eastern 7 Central. The other series in the NCIS franchise, NCIS and NCIS: Hawai’i air on Mondays starting at 9/8 central.
