NCIS has made an announcement regarding season 20's future episodes - and it's safe to say fans aren't too pleased.

Following the show's 450th episode, which aired on Monday 27 February, the CBS drama announced that it would be taking a two-week break, which means fans won't see a new episode until 13 March. 

In a post to its official Twitter account, the show's team wrote: "That's a wrap on the 450th episode of #NCIS! Don't worry – we'll be back in two weeks with another all-new episode. See you then!"

A third person wrote: "Yeah your schedule sucks. [An] episode one week, another two weeks later, then two weeks later. Why I stopped tuning in on Monday."

The news comes shortly after CBS announced that NCIS and its spin-off show NCIS: Hawai'i have both been renewed for another season, with the flagship drama set to return for its 21st and the Hawai'i spin-off for its third.
