NCIS: Los Angeles will move to a new day and time this fall, but will that lead to a change in content?
The CBS series will jump from Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET to Mondays at 10 p.m. ET when it returns for season 5, and the later hour may allow the NCIS: LA writers to explore some topics that may not be so family friendly.
Actor Miguel Ferrer (Granger) hinted at this possibility when the new time was announced during CBS' Upfronts.
"I'm assuming you've already heard about our new night and time. Both great, especially time. You'll see what I mean," Ferrer tweeted in early May.
However, executive producer John Peter Kousakis was unable to confirm or deny any content changes, stating that the season 6 details are still in the hands of the series creator.
"Only Mr.Brennan knows. #staytuned," Kousakis told his Twitter followers on Thursday.
When the series does return in late September, Sam (LL Cool J) and Callen (Chris O'Donnell) will be in grave danger. The pair ended season 5 trapped on a bomb-laden submarine, and the partners will continue to be in mortal danger during "Deep Trouble: Part 2."
Catch NCIS: LA Mondays at 10 p.m. ET on CBS this fall.
