From the moment CBS first launched its FBI franchise, it was clear the network had high hopes for the Dick Wolf series and saw the potential to spin the series into yet another successful franchise. CBS has since wasted no time in expanding the universe with the launch of FBI: Most Wanted in 2020 and this fall the FBI franchise will expand again with the launch of FBI: International season 1.

As the title alludes, this new installment of the popular franchise will be going international in following a group of operatives from the International Fly Team as they jet off across the globe tracking and neutralizing threats against American citizens.

Wondering what to expect from the latest addition to CBS’s ever-growing FBI franchise? Below, we share everything there is to know so far about the news FBI spinoff, FBI: International.

FBI: International season 1 premiere date

FBI: International season 1 will premiere Tuesday, Sept. 21 on CBS at 9/8c. The newest addition to the FBI franchise will be sandwiched between the network’s two existing series with FBI opening the night at 8/7c and FBI: Most Wanted closing the night at 10/9c.

The decision to air FBI: International between new episodes of FBI and FBI: Most Wanted is one that makes a lot of sense and should set the show up for success in having a strong lead-in in the form of the series that started it all. This is a strategy that has worked nicely for CBS in the past with FBI being used as the lead-in to launch FBI: Most Wanted and the network taking a similar approach when launching new additions to its NCIS franchise.

FBI: International season 1 cast

While the complete cast for FBI: International season 1 has not yet been released, CBS has revealed the identity of three of the show’s series regulars those actors being Luke Kleintank, Heida Reed and Vinessa Vidotto.

As first reported by Deadline, Kleintank will play the Head of the International FBI Fly Team unit with Reed playing his second-in-command and Vidotto playing the team’s “green but eager” new addition.

FBI: International season 1 synopsis

As the show’s title hints, FBI: International will follow the international brand of the FBI in centering around the Fly Team based out of Prague. Similar to the other FBI franchise shows, it’s expected that FBI: International will take a case-of-the-week type approach in following the team of agents as they work new cases each week.

In this particular instance, those cases will just so happen to take them across the world to various countries where they’ll have to rely on “intelligence, quick thinking and pure brawn” to protect the US and neutralize the latest threats against the nation and its citizens.
