Yet another addition to Dick Wolf’s coterie is FBI: International, a second spin-off from FBI on CBS. Revolving around the crime procedural beyond the borders of the United States, FBI: International, through the conventional case-of-the-week format, enthralls the viewers with its riveting storyline and gripping characters.
The third season will indubitably pick up from where its predecessor left, spiking the anticipation of the fans with its cliffhanger ending. However, this anticipation soon turned into frustration when all the pre-determined fall schedules were disrupted and postponed indefinitely, owing to the months-long WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.
But now that the writers’ union has officially announced the end of its strike, everyone’s eyes are brimming with rejuvenated hopes, hoping to watch their favorite show on screen soon. But does that mean that FBI: International season 3 will arrive in October?
Well, that’s too soon!
Here’s everything we know so far about FBI: International Season 3.
Is FBI: International season 3 coming in October?
FBI: International was renewed for a third season by CBS way back in early 2022. A 2023 premiere was what everyone was looking forward to. However, no one expected that all the production schedules would be put to a halt in May 2023 with the commencement of the writers’ strike. Joined by the actors’ union in July, WGA continued for approximately five months until September 27, 2023, when they officially announced its end.
Now that the writers’ strike has officially ended, everyone is expecting FBI: International season 3 to premiere soon. The writers are expected to resume their work as soon as possible. However, we must also keep in mind that the actors’ strike is still ongoing and the negotiations are underway. So, even if the scripts are ready by the end of this year, the cameras won’t begin rolling unless the actors’ strike has also officially drawn to a close.
Hopefully, if the SAG-AFTRA strikes end by 2023, we can expect FBI: International season 3 to premiere in the first quarter of 2024. If not, CBS would have to fill the time slots by primarily relying on reruns and reality TV programming, which could get monotonous for the viewers to some extent.
One FBI: International season 3 premieres after its delay, it will be available for streaming on Paramount +, a day after its original airing on CBC. In the meantime, you can stream all the FBI: International episodes on Paramount + at the moment.
