We know that since the fourth and fifth seasons were renewed by CBS back in May 2022, fans have been curious to know when the potential release window will be.

If you are wondering the same thing, then we can assure you that you have reached the right place to know all your answers about the much-anticipated fifth season of FBI: Most Wanted, which we definitely think is going to captivate the audience once again as it has done for the last four years.   

Here is everything we know so far about the potential release date of FBI: Most Wanted Season 5.

FBI: Most Wanted Season 5 Release Date: Is it premiering in June 2023?

Firstly, let’s clear up all the rumors surrounding the potential return of the show for a fifth season. As of writing this, we can confirm that the exact release date for FBI: Most Wanted Season 5 has not been disclosed yet. The confusion caused by the raging rumors all over social media can now be put to rest, as the fans should focus on looking out for the schedule for the coming months on CBS.

Making one thing clear, there is no doubt that it won’t be premiering anytime soon, especially in the month of June 2023.

But for your consideration, it pretty much looks like the network might be considering sticking with the planned schedule, and the next season will be released sometime in the fall of the 2023–2024 broadcast television season, with September being the likely release window. It is expected to follow a similar schedule, with new episodes airing every Tuesday at 10/9 con CBS and later on Paramount Plus. 

On the other hand, we think that one of the main reasons for such speculation is the ongoing 2023 Writers Guild of America strike, which hasn’t been resolved and has already started to cause major delays in various productions as the writer’s room have stopped working on scripts until a proper resolution is made in their favor. So, there is a slight chance that the series might be aiming to release in 2024 if production is unable to resume this summer season. 

In the meantime, we urge the fans to wait patiently and hope for the best so that they can soon binge-watch their favorite shows.

FBI: Most Wanted Season 5 Plot: What can we expect to see in the new season?

The next season is expected to carry on the legacy of this beloved franchise which follows: “From Emmy Award winner Dick Wolf and the team behind “FBI” and the “Law & Order” franchise, “FBI: Most Wanted” is a high-stakes drama focusing on the Fugitive Task Force, which relentlessly tracks and captures the notorious criminals on the Bureau’s Most Wanted list. The team functions as a mobile undercover unit that is always out in the field, pursuing those who are most desperate to elude justice.”

“The FBIs are one of the most successful brands in the entire TV landscape and a powerful cornerstone of our number one lineup,” said Kelly Kahl, President of CBS Entertainment. “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 plot is also expected to pick up from the fourth season’s final episode, “Heaven Falling” which was directed by Ken Girotti and written by David Hudgins. In the episode, the viewers got to see that the team helps Remy (Dylan McDermott) try to catch his brother’s real killer 25 years after Mikey was murdered.

The next season is expected to pick up from this episode and continue the plot with new subplots that highlight character arcs for the series to develop in favor of the fan’s expectations. 

In the meantime, we suggest fans patiently wait and binge-watch Season 4, which ended last month, in order to update their recollection of certain significant plotlines and keep an eye out for details that will be released in the coming weeks of the series’ official episode titles and synopsis.

Furthermore, as of June 2023, the network had not yet announced any new castings.
