The network has picked up all three shows from megaproducer Dick Wolf — and not just for one season. The three series — flagship show FBI and spinoffs FBI: Most Wanted and FBI: International — have all received two-season renewals that will take them through the 2023-24 season.
The first back orders for new fall 2021 series have gone to CBS’s NCIS: Hawai’i and FBI: International. The breakout success of the two shows, which have been among the bright spots so far this season, underscores the value of popular procedural drama franchises as arguably the best — and safest — bets on broadcast TV these days with three NCIS, three Chicago, three FBI, two 9-1-1 and two (soon to be three) Law & Order series all doing well.
The network has given the green light to FBI: International, its second spinoff of Dick Wolf’s burgeoning franchise. Additionally, FBI and FBI: Most Wanted have been renewed for next season.
