CBS’s FBI viewers recently received some major news. The fourth season of CBS’s FBI has been ordered, according to Deadline. The third season of FBI: Most Wanted has also been ordered. To top it all off, Dick Wolf’s working connection with CBS is just becoming stronger, as the FBI world will be further expanded with the upcoming spin-off FBI: International.
The FBI series focuses on a group of agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigations who utilize all of their knowledge and skills to solve complex criminal cases that threaten the country. The first season of CBS’s FBI series debuted in 2018 and has been a huge success, according to Deadline. The show has a weekly audience of 11 million people and has ascended to the position of the third most-watched show on broadcast television.
FBI and FBI: Most Wanted have been hugely successful for CBS, so it’s understandable that they’d want to continue the show and offer viewers more of what they want: new tales set in the FBI universe. That’s all we know for now about FBI: International.
FBI: International’s release date isn’t set in stone, but there is a time frame. CBS has said that it hopes to have the show air either this year or next. CBS has ordered FBI: International for broadcast in the years 2021-2022, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
According to reports, the network wants the spin-off to debut during the next season of FBI and FBI: Most Wanted. According to CBS Entertainment President Kelly Kahl, the network’s goal with the new show is to establish a “triple-threat” for the upcoming television season. CBS, according to Deadline, wants FBI: International to debut alongside one of its more established programs. As a result, when fresh seasons of FBI and FBI: Most Wanted are underway, it’s probable that FBI: International will be released as well.
FBI: International has yet to announce its whole cast, considering the show was just commissioned. As of now, it is known that Wolf Entertainment and Universal Television will executive produce the series with Dick Wolf serving as an executive producer with Derek Haas, Rick Eid, Peter Jankowski, and Arthur Forney. The spin-showrunner off’s will also be Hass. Hass has written for Dick Wolf’s NBC Chicago series, including Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, and Chicago P.D. This also fits in with Dick Wolf’s specialty of assembling a diverse team of individuals with complementary skills and personalities that conflict when attempting to solve a case.
Aside from a few new characters and locations, FBI: International follows a narrative similar to that of the previous two installments. The FBI and the investigations it does will remain the main emphasis. The plot’s goal, on the other hand, is to aid in the expansion of the FBI’s investigations and activities while simultaneously bringing attention to another branch. According to CBS’s TV show finale, the narrative of FBI International mostly follows the top agents of the FBI’s International Division as they travel across the world protecting Americans wherever they may be.
The premise allows the show to go into a wide range of cases from throughout the world. It gets even more interesting when you consider that the release of FBI: International will lead to a crossover with both FBI and FBI: Most Wanted. This might imply that the cast of the FBI and FBI: Most Wanted is dealing with a case that is beyond their resources or reaches and must now rely on the International Division of the bureau. In that manner, the new spin-off may be introduced while still elaborating on the primary narrative of the previous series.
Is there any Trailer?
The trailer isn’t for FBI: International specifically, but for the three-hour crossover debut of all three FBI shows, which includes FBI: International.
