"According to sources, NCIS has paused production after a positive test in Zone A, which includes the cast and those interacting with them," reports Deadline's Nellie Andreeva. "The case is believed to involve a cast member. I hear that for now, the intention is still for the show to resume filming with the NCIS: Hawai’i crossover episode next week but plans are all in flux amid the unprecedented infection rates. Meanwhile, NCIS: LA has delayed return to production until February, sources said. I hear this was done out of precaution based on the fact that the CBS procedural is well ahead and has enough episodes in the bank to afford a long break without affecting the season’s run on the network." Andreeva also reports that the Omicron surge has resulted in FBI stopping filming for a day or two to assess the situation.
