Sad news for NCIS fans: there's no new episode this week, and it'll be that way for the rest of the month.

The CBS series has entered its holiday break as of Episode 9, which aired on Dec. 6. That was the mid-season finale and NCIS won't be back until the new year.

NCIS: New season 19 episode release date?

NCIS season 19 officially returns with a new episode on Monday, Jan. 3. It's titled "Pledge of Allegiance" and, as a fun side note, it's directed by "Vance" actor Rocky Carroll.

So, what will be airing instead of new NCIS episodes if you tune in on CBS Mondays? First, the season 18 episode "Blown Away" will rerun on Monday, Dec. 13.

On Dec. 20, the rerun will be this season's premiere "Blood in the Water" — if you want to revisit one of the final episodes featuring "Gibbs" (Mark Harmon).

The network hasn't yet confirmed which episode will show on Dec. 27, but it's safe to assume it'll be another old episode.

Again, NCIS is off until Monday, Jan. 3. In the most recent episode, "Jessica Knight" took centre stage. The new agent's personal life came into focus after she connected with a case about a woman estranged from her mother.

There's also plenty to look forward to in the remainder of the season. It's been confirmed that actress Meredith Eaton will reprise her role as "Carole Wilson" in an upcoming episode.

Then there's been unending speculation about Michael Weatherly and Mark Harmon making comebacks, but those have remained rumours up to this point.
