CBS fall 2021 premiere dates: NCIS, FBI Tuesdays, and more

The networks are announcing their fall 2021 premiere dates. When will NCIS and more return? Here are the CBS fall 2021 premiere dates.

There is certainly some change to the CBS schedule in 2021. For the first time ever, NCIS is moving from Tuesdays to Mondays. It’s an attempt to help boost Monday nights, while also giving the new spin-off NCIS: Hawaii a chance. The move also makes from for FBI Tuesdays, since that new spin-off FBI: International will get a boost from the FBI lead-in.

Then there are a few other changes. SEAL Team Season 5 will get a start on CBS, but it’s going to move to Paramount+. For a while, SWAT will air on Fridays, but then it’s going to move to Sundays. There’s a lot to take in, but you need to know the CBS fall 2021 premiere dates first just to get started!

Get ready for September premieres

Just like ABC and NBC, shows are arriving at the end of September for the most part, according to Deadline. CBS is managing to return to a normal fall for many shows, especially the big ones.

This suggests that filming in the summer will be as normal as possible. The premiere dates could need to be pushed, but that’s unlikely based on most shows having COVID protocols in place already. We’ll be sure to let you know if there are any changes to premiere dates.
