FBI Season 6 Release Date: When will it premiere?

Mark your calendars! As a part of the “FBI” franchise, consisting of FBI, FBI: International, and FBI: Most Wanted, the crime drama series is planned to be a part of the 2024 primetime schedule, as the franchise will return to its regular air time with new episodes dropping next year on Tuesday, February 13, 2024, on CBS and later available to stream exclusively on Paramount Plus. 

On the other hand, the respective time slots for the three-season official premiere are as follows:

  • FBI (sixth season premiere): 8-9 PM 
  • FBI: International (third season premiere): 9-10 PM 
  • FBI: Most Wanted (fifth season premiere): 10-11 PM 

The official X (formerly known as Twitter) handle of the show also confirmed the official release date of the three shows to its followers with a short teaser clip, quoting, “The wait is over — tune in to the new season of #TheFBIs Tuesday, February 13 starting at 8/7c on @CBS.” In the meantime, check out the official post as shared by the network with its 58.3K followers below: 

FBI Season 6 Plot: What to expect?

The exact plotlines for the sixth season have not been confirmed by the network, as it is way too early to disclose their information and it can lead to major spoilers. As a result, we are certain that the series will continue to expand and be true to its original premise, which is as follows:

“From Emmy Award winner Dick Wolf and the team behind the “Law & Order” franchise, “FBI” is a fast-paced drama about 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.”

With so much silence about the exact plot, we can also speculate 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 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. Check out the official promo for the final episode of FBI Season 5 below:

FBI Season 6 Cast: Who will return?

The main cast members from the prior season who are expected to return 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. 

In addition to this, Shantel VanSanten is moving from FBI to FBI: Most Wanted for the latter show’s fifth season by reprising the role of Special Agent Nina Chase.

Nina is a well-seasoned FBI agent who is strong-willed, sharp and used to working undercover. She continued her recurring role in various episodes of Season 5, where Nina remains in a relationship with FBI’s Stuart Scola (John Boyd) as they raise their infant son Douglas together. VanSanten is joining the cast following Alexa Davalos’ exit from FBI: Most Wanted, which Deadline reported exclusively in August.

 The series is produced by Wolf Entertainment, CBS Studios, and Universal Television, with Dick Wolf, Arthur W. Forney, Peter Jankowski, and Turk serving as executive producers.

FBI Season 6 Episode Count: Where to stream?

When renewed, the series was given a standard 21 to 22 episode count with an average duration of approximately 44 minutes, premiering on a weekly basis. But, due to the delays caused in production by the dual strikes, the network decided to air a shorter season with only 13 episodes, which will help to conclude the run of the sixth season earlier rather than stretching the plot unnecessarily just for the sake of premiering the episodes. 

All the new episodes will air on CBS and later on Paramount Plus. 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. The program also airs on Global on Tuesday nights in Canada. Moreover, the series is also shown on Sky Witness in the UK. In Southeast Asia, the show airs on AXN Asia on Thursdays at 9:45 p.m.

FBI Season 6 Official Trailer: Has it been released?

Sadly, the network hasn’t released any new promos for the sixth season, as the filming status has not been confirmed. The fans can only speculate that it has commenced, which leaves a lot of time for the marketing to begin. We’ll just have to wait and see what the next few months have in store for us.

In the meantime, we urge the readers to stream prior episodes to stay up-to-date with the plot and subscribe to all the official social media handles of the series to get all the latest information.
