We have compiled all the necessary information for you to get a head start on the forthcoming season. So, if you’re looking for information about the potential release date and other crucial details, then look no further and buckle up to get ready for a rollercoaster ride that you won’t soon forget.
Here is everything we know so far about when FBI Season 6 will be back on CBS.
FBI Season 6: When is the series expected to return?
Firstly, it’s only been a month since the fifth season finale episode premiered on CBS, so there is still plenty of time left for the series to return with a brand new season, which was renewed back in May 2022 along with the fifth season as a part of the 2023–24 broadcast season, which was an exciting update for the fans who were eagerly awaiting any confirmation.
But sadly, all the good news was shortly overshadowed due to the ongoing 2023 Writers Guild of America strike, which started a few weeks ago and doesn’t seem to end anytime soon, causing many production houses to halt their work temporarily with reports circulating that the writing for the upcoming season has not started, which is quite unfortunate when we consider the fact that filming usually begins by the summer season if the network is aiming for its fall release later this year.
If we look at the current status, one thing is pretty much clear: the network might be considering some crucial changes behind the scenes for its upcoming fall primetime schedule. We assume that the ongoing writer’s strike has already started to cause a major delay in production, eventually forcing the creators to skip the 2023 fall premiere, which was confirmed last month by the network, and eventually modify and set the release window for some time in 2024 if the situation isn’t resolved anytime soon.
There is still a chance that the network might decide to publish its revised release dates in order to avoid further confusion. As the latest report by Deadline states, CBS already seems to be taking crucial measures and might have started to look at alternative dates for the release of these popular shows. George Cheeks, President and CEO of CBS and Chief Content Officer, stated during a keynote at Banff moderated by Deadline’s Peter White, “We wanted to build our schedule for when the world goes back to normal.”

“Once we had done that, once we locked it in, we spent a lot of time focusing on what it was going to look like.” He elaborated that a revised CBS fall scheduling plan is expected to be revealed soon. “First of all, obviously it’s going to be very reality-heavy,” he said. In conclusion, it’s not farfetched to assume that the content of the CBS fall schedule can be changed as production is assumed to resume later this year, which makes the chances of the show’s return this year seems minimal. It can eventually premiere sometime in early to mid-2024, with new episodes airing every Tuesday at 9:00 p.m. on CBS.
It’s only a matter of time until the modified schedule becomes known. Until then, this is only our view that the creators should consider the late completion of the scripts and come up with the best approach to avoid any unneeded obstacles in the future. As a result, we ask fans to be patient and keep an eye on social media channels for more information on the probable release date, which will ultimately be acknowledged.

FBI Season 6: What to expect in the new season?
Due to an early two-season pickup, not much has been disclosed about the plot, but the new season will definitely explore the inner workings of the New York office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. First-class agents, including Maggie Bell and Omar Adom “OA” Zidan, bring all of their talents, intellect, and technical expertise to tenaciously investigate cases of tremendous magnitude, including terrorism, organized crime, and counterintelligence, to keep New York and the country safe.
“Everybody who works on these three shows is over the moon about the multi-year pickups,” added Dick Wolf, executive producer and FBI brand creator. “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 the three crews who never missed an air date despite the difficulties of producing full seasons during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
“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.”
Lastly, even though there is so much silence about the exact plot, there is no doubt that the new season will continue the plot and character arcs from the finale episode, “God Complex,” of the fifth season, in which the viewers got to see that when a prominent doctor is found dead in a ritualistic slaying, the team must race against time to hunt down a religiously motivated serial killer. Later, the viewers see Scola face a life-or-death decision.
FBI Season 6: Who will return in the cast?
The main cast members who are expected to return in the new season are as follows: Missy Peregrym as Special Agent Maggie Bell, Zeeko Zaki as Special Agent Omar Adom “OA” Zidan, John Boyd as Special Agent Stuart Scola, Katherine Renee Turner as Special Agent Tiffany Wallace, Alana De La Garza as Special Agent in Charge Isobel Castille, and Jeremy Sisto as Assistant Special Agent in Charge Jubal Valentine. The series is produced by Wolf Entertainment, CBS Studios, and Universal Television.
In addition to this, the recurring cast members who are also speculated to return for the new season include Taylor Anthony Miller as Kelly Moran, Vedette Lim as Elise Taylor, James Chen as Ian Lim, Shantel VanSanten as Special Agent Nina Chase, Roshawn Franklin as Agent Trevor Hobbs, Mara Davi as Samantha Kelton, Caleb Reese Paul as Tyler Kelton, and Emily Donahoe as CIA Rep Anne Potter. Moreover, Dick Wolf, Arthur W. Forney, Peter Jankowski, and Turk serve as executive producers.
FBI Season 6 Episodes: Where to stream?
We can inform readers that the upcoming season’s official episode count has been announced by the network to be approximately 22 episodes with an average length of 44 minutes, the same as the previous seasons, which are slated to release weekly. This episode count is accurate. If you are familiar with the show’s history, then you’ll know that the show tends to take mid-season breaks, which is perfect for rolling out the episodes on a proper schedule.
Furthermore, if the writer’s strike is not resolved shortly, the official episode count will be decreased to 18–20, which will be confirmed later if it happens.
When available, the episodes will air on CBS and later on Paramount Plus, just like the prior seasons. The viewers can also catch up on all the seasons on FuboTV. Moreover, FBI is also available for renting or purchase on Amazon Instant Video and Vudu, with a vast number of membership plans according to user preferences. Moreover, the series is also available to watch exclusively on CBS’s website, where the episodes are published after they air on the TV channel.
FBI Season 6 Official Trailer: Is there any promo available?
As the new episodes have not yet been filmed, no official teaser or trailer for the upcoming season has been released!
Moreover, it takes time for such promotional stuff to be published, which usually begins a month or two before the premiere of the new episodes. In the meantime, check out this official promo of the fifth season’s final episode to get an idea of or recall what has transpired so far in the series in case you haven’t been able to stream the series yet.
