Rearrange your schedules, NCIS: Los Angeles fans. CBS just rejiggered their premiere dates, and the West Coast Avengers will return to screens a week earlier than expected.

Originally expected to slide into the Sunday night 8 p.m. ET slot on Oct 2, NCIS: LA will now kick off season 8 on Sept. 25 at 8:30 p.m. ET instead.

"NCIS: LA is opening its new season with a two-part episode, so the network brass found running that as a two-hour premiere following an NFL doubleheader a good way to launch the crime drama on its new night," Deadline revealed on Monday.

The decision to air "High-Value Target" and "Belly of the Beast" back-to-back is hardly a surprise, particularly considering the teasers Daniela Ruah (Kensi) and Eric Christian Olsen (Deeks) dropped at San Diego Comic-Con.

"The first episode is kind of an introduction. There's a case, this is happening, [and] they do indeed send us overseas," Ruah told EnStars. "Episode 2 is where this big situation happens that spurs the chain of events that happens after that."

Check out the episode summary below!

"After NCIS fails to locate a mole in the department, Under Secretary of Defense Corbin Duggan (Jackson Hurst) insists on new leadership and takes over the Los Angeles unit from Hetty and Granger," CBS teased. "Also, the team travels to Syria to apprehend a High-Value Target where one team member is severely injured when the mission goes awry, on the special two-hour eighth season premiere."
