NCIS Hawaii is one of the many spin-offs of the hit procedural series, however, despite premiering in September – the series has been delayed yet again. This time the CBS show’s festive shake-up is set for its longest hiatus yet.

Unfortunately, Monday’s episode six was the last time fans would be seeing Special Agent Jane Tennent (played by Vanessa Lachey) and her team for a while.

An unexpected mid-season break meant the show would be returning to screens for episode 10 in the new year.

Although NCIS Hawaii has taken breaks due to scheduling shake-ups in the past, this hiatus is set to become its longest yet.

Viewers will have to tune in to see if Lucy Tara (Yasmine Al-Bustami) and Kate Whistler’s (Tori Anderson) relationship will eventually blossom.

The upcoming episode titled ‘Lost’ will see the NCIS team cross paths with Whistler’s Defence Intelligence Agency.

The two teams will work together to investigate a mysterious shipping container which was filled with contraband weapons.

Viewers will also see Jane debate whether she should arrest Alex’s friend’s dad, even though it may cause her to move away.

After NCIS Hawaii returns to regular scheduling, fans will be glad to hear the series will have a full-season order with no chance of a short term future.

The most recent episode titled ‘Imposter’ was an emotional one as it refected on the bombings of Pearl Harbour during World War II.

Fans watched as the team discovered the bones of a naval officer right before a ceremony to honour its 80th anniversary was about to start.

During the investigation, Lucy discovered the DNA of the deceased Ken Ito also pointed to an imposter, as the same Ito was supposedly alive and still giving speeches about the war.

The episode was also dedicated to the victims and survivors of Pearl Harbour, regardless of where they came from.

It was up to the team to find out the real Ito was dead or about to receive an honour for his service.

However, things got tough when they discovered he was 100-years-old with dementia and could hardly remember anything.

After fishing through archives, Vanessa found an old photograph of the real Ito who was deceased standing next to the man who claimed to be Ito.

It was later revealed, the imposter was a Japanese immigrant who was hired as a civilian and as an immigrant, the USA didn’t allow him to join the Navy at the time.

As one of the major storylines, fans hope to see a continuation of the Whistler and Lucy romance, in the new year.

Their fling is a rare look at same-sex couples within the franchise and fans are dedicated to following them, with hopes they’ll work out.

CBS have yet to announce if NCIS Hawaii will be renewed for a second season, however, it seems likely as it has received a full-season order of 22-24 episodes.

Express.co.uk will be updated with new information.
