CBS Makes Renewal Decision On ‘FBI’, ‘FBI: Most Wanted’ and ‘FBI: International’

CBS is staying the course with its FBI franchise as the network made a series of renewal announcements.

The network gave the green light to all three of the series’ for two seasons, meaning there will be new episodes of the trio through at least 2024. All three of FBIFBI: International, and FBI: Most Wanted lead the way among most-watched shows on Tuesday nights, which made the renewal a little more than a formality.

“The FBIs are one of the most successful brands in the entire TV landscape and a powerful cornerstone of our #1 lineup,” CBS Entertainment President Kelly Kahl said in a release. “They’ve attracted a dedicated, loyal fan base, thanks to the extraordinary vision of executive producer Dick Wolf and the talents of all three outstanding casts and creative teams. I know we and our viewers look forward to two additional seasons of engaging, heroic stories.”

The first of the FBI series’ debuted in September 2017, and after its initial wave of success the company spun off its main attraction with FBI: Most Wanted launching in January 2019. 

In a similar span of time, the network waited two years for FBI: International to make its debut in September 2021.

The trio of shows are all produced by Dick Wolf, who was initially made famous as the creator of NBC’s Law & Order and Chicago shows.

Chicago P.D. character Det. Hailey Upton, played by Tracy Spiridakos, crossed over in an FBI Season 2 episode, which some fans clearly linked FBIChicago, and the Law & Order franchises.

“Everybody who works on these three shows is over the moon about the multi-year pickups,” Wolf said. “We are all incredibly grateful to CBS and our partners at Universal Television and CBS Studios. And I personally would like to thank the incredible casts, talented writers, and dedicated producers, not to mention three crews who never missed an airdate despite the difficulties of producing full seasons during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
