FBI International Season 3 Plot: What to expect from the new season?

The show’s creators have remained tight-lipped about any upcoming plotlines. But, we are certain that it will expand on the basic premise, which follows:

“From Emmy Award-winning executive producer Dick Wolf, “FBI: International” 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. Not allowed to carry guns, the Fly Team members rely on intelligence, quick thinking, and pure brawn as they put their lives on the line to protect the U.S. and its people.”

Moreover, as previously stated, the next season is also expected to pick up the plot right from the second season’s finale, “Fencing the Mona Lisa,” which was directed by Michael Katleman and written by Matt Olmstead and Edgar Castillo. In the episode, the viewers got to see that when a Russian missile is stolen and put on the black market in Budapest, the team must secure the weapon before a mysterious American arms broker delivers it into the wrong hands.
