FBI Season 6: When will it premiere on CBS?
We would like to point out that the exact launch date has yet to be determined, as the series recently aired the 100th final episode of the fifth season. As a result, any official statement about the show’s official release date and time slot is still subject to change. Hence, this is just pure speculation!
On the bright side, if we consider the prior schedule, then the next season is speculated to be released sometime in the fall of 2023–2024, with September being the likely release window. It is expected to follow a similar schedule, with new episodes airing every Tuesday at 8/7c on CBS and later on Paramount Plus.
It’s very likely that the show’s creators will want the new episodes to be released on similar consistent patterns and not be delayed any further, which is a possibility due to the ongoing writer’s strike, which sadly hasn’t reached any resolution and will take more time. Hence, we suggest that the viewers be patient and updated with the latest information for the next season.
In order to receive updates on when the new season premieres, interested viewers can also enable notifications. On the other hand, the official Twitter handle of the show also shared the sixth season’s renewal among its followers, quoting, “Our cast has some fantastic news to share: #FBICBS has been renewed for Season 5 AND Season 6! #TheFBIs” Take a look at the official post below:

FBI Season 6: What can the fans expect to see 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.
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, Scola faces a life-or-death decision.
“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 airdate despite the difficulties of producing full seasons during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
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 and Streaming Options
As of writing this, we can assure the readers that the official episode count of the new season has been revealed by the network to be around 22 episodes with an average runtime of 44 minutes, just like the prior seasons, which are expected to drop on a weekly basis. 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.
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.
