American fans have been able to watch the first half of NCIS season 17 since it first aired in September. However, it’s been a very different story for fans here in the UK as they have had to wait for a release date to confirmed – thankfully the wait is over. But when exactly is the CBS original crime drama going to be released?
When does NCIS season 17 start in the UK?
There has been talk online about what has been going on in the latest NCIS episodes for the past few months.
But UK fans have been unable to join in as there has been a long delay in the series being shown.
And knowing Agent Ziva David (played by Cote de Pablo) will be making a comeback, viewers have been more eager for the season to start.
So when will the eagerly anticipated series be released in the UK.

Fortunately, there isn’t too much longer to wait until the starts.
NCIS season 17 will start on Fox UK on Friday, January 3.
This means there is less than two weeks to go before we find out why Ziva has returned and why she has been in hiding since making her exit.
So what can we expect from the first episode of season 17?
Episode one is entitled Out of the Darkness and if the synopsis is anything to go by, we should be getting more of an explanation of what’s going on from Ziva herself.
It reads: “Ziva surprises Gibbs with a cryptic warning, prompting him to question why she remained underground for years while being presumed dead, and what led to her return.”
In the season 13 finale, we believe Ziva is killed by a mortar attack arranged by former CIA agent Trent Kort (David Fisher).
During the finale, Tony Dinozzo (Michael Weatherly) learns he has a daughter with Ziva who she named after her sister Tali.

But is actor Weatherly also going to be making a comeback in season 17?

At the moment, Weatherly is starring in drama Bull but he hasn’t ruled out returning to the crime series.
Speaking to Digital Spy, he said: “Whether or not it’s in Bull or in some other iteration of an NCIS, I would say there’s always the chance of [me reuniting with Cote].
“She’s one of my favourite people. For eight years, we got to have a lot of fun. Certainly, in terms of chemistry, I’ve never had anyone like that rattle my brain.”
NCIS season 17 will start on Fox UK on Friday, January 3, at 9pm.
