FBI: International Season 2 Plot
The basic premise, according to the CBS website, follows the faced-paced drama FBI: International is the third iteration of the successful FBI brand that follows the elite operatives of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s International Fly Team. Headquartered in Budapest, they travel the world with the mission of tracking and neutralizing threats against American citizens wherever they may be, putting their lives on the line to protect the U.S. and its people.
The Fly Team’s Special Agent Scott Forrester, their accomplished and dedicated leader, puts his missions ahead of his personal life and is rarely seen without the team’s “secret weapon” – their trusty Schutzhund dog, Tank. Second in command is Special Agent Jamie Kellett, not afraid to tussle – in an alley or courtroom – and her extensive network of informants is a powerful resource.
Special Agent Andre Raines shines in the field and makes good use of his accounting background in tracking criminal enterprises’ moving money; and the group’s newest member is Special Agent Cameron Vo, a competitive West Point grad who excels at interrogation and strategy.
A key part of the mix is the unflappable Europol Agent Katrin Jaeger, a multilinguistic liaison between the FBI Fly Team and each host country they inhabit. Always at the scene where American interests are at risk, FBI: International is a globe-trotting depiction of law enforcement overseas.
The second season’s plotlines are unknown, but fans have assumed they will continue the Season 1 storyline. The finale episode, Crestfallen, of the first season was released on May 24, 2022. The episode is directed by Rob Greenlea and written by Matt Olmstead. The official synopsis of the episode reads, “When a private jet carrying American citizens is shot down outside a small town in Poland, the team looks into the man who missed the flight; Forrester is conflicted when he receives information from his mother.”
The next season is expected to pick up from this episode and continue the plot with new subplots, which highlight new character arcs for the series to develop in favor of the FBI legacy. In the meantime, we suggest fans to patiently wait and binge-watch Season 1, which aired earlier this year, in order to update their recollection of certain significant plotlines and keep an eye out for details that will release in the coming weeks about the series’ episode titles and synopsis.
