“A sudden gut feeling.
Raines felt something unusual while he was waiting outside with Tank.
The rest of the FBI team was still inside the building.
Raines called Forrester to alert him. He paid no heed to the warning.
Paranoia struck the ‘fight or flight mode’ in Raines and he bolted towards the building, leaving Tank behind.
The building blew up, with the team inside.”
FBI International Season 2 finale left us in the throes of this cliffhanger, and we cannot remain calm. Did the whole team blow up with the building? Did Raines survive the blast? So many questions, and NO CLUE about what happens next!
We are as impatient as you are for Season 3 to air. Since we know FBI International Season 3 will not grace our screens by July 2023, the pressing question is WHEN?
We have gained some information on some recent updates on the new season, so stay tuned.
FBI International Season 3: Release Updates
— FBI: International (@FBIIntCBS) May 9, 2022
Ever since a renewal for season 3 (at the same time Season 2) was announced on May 9, 2022, we knew we were in for two more years of adrenaline-filled episodes where our favorite ‘Fly team’ solves intriguing cases.
This is the second spin-off from Dick Wolf’s drama FBI and the third series in the FBI franchise. The FBI gang took us through two years of invigorating action sequences and brain-scratching investigations and truly tapped into conjuring the ‘investigating’ avatar in all of us viewers.
However, we picked up some updates in relation to the recent strike that shook Hollywood to its core, with several shows halting productions or getting delayed, like Yellowjackets, Cobra Kai, Euphoria, Wednesday, etc.
Amidst the strike, CBS officially released their fall 2023-24 schedule on May 2023, and to our major relief, FBI: International was placed on the Tuesday slot.
But CBS ensured that this joy was short-lived. It again released an updated version of its fall 2023-24 schedule, and we think you can guess what happened…
They removed FBI International from the list and added FBI TRUE instead! Just to be clear, FBI International is separate from FBI True. The latter takes us behind the scenes of the crime scenes and how the team deals with investigations on a daily basis. The former is a classic crime drama sequence that we are currently hooked on.
FBI International Season 3: Is it coming in 2023?
The confirmation on this question can only be answered through the WGA SAG-AFTRA strike status. Since there is no recent indication that the strike will end any time soon, we have to reluctantly come to terms with the Fly team not joining us this year. CBS gave us the second indication through their updated fall 2023-24 schedule, where FBI International Season 3 is nowhere to be found.
But there may be a sliver of hope. If the strike does die down within two months, we may expect production for Season 3 to begin and can still view our favorite series this year itself. If not, then we have to wait for 2024.
FBI International Season 3: Cast
Since the cataclysmic cliffhanger that was fed to us by the series, we don’t know for sure who we can expect will return to the show and who will not. We are hoping all of them do return, though!
The main cast of the series includes:
Luke Kleintank as Supervisory Special Agent Scott Forrester
Heida Reed as Special Agent Jamie Kellett
Carter Redwood as Special Agent Andre Raines
Vinessa Vidotto as Special Agent Cameron Vo
Eva-Jane Willis as Europol Agent Megan “Smitty” Garretson
Green as Schutzhund Tank
The recurring cast members include:
- Reg Hovanessian as Special Agent Damian Powell
As we gather more information on the series, we will update you if there are any deductions or additions to the cast for Season 3.
FBI International Season 3: Plot and Episodes
While we do not know what happened to our beloved fly team when the entire building blew up with them inside it, we can expect them to survive and continue catching the criminal. The creators of the show suspiciously remain guarded on any hints related to the next season, so it is tough to determine.
However, a common follow-up should relate to most of the crew surviving the attack and hunting down the sinister evil which caused such havoc.
We are certain that if and when production begins and the first looks are out, we will get some intel on what might happen next.
With respect to the episodes, following the previous seasons, you can expect 22 episodes, with each of them running for 43-53 minutes. They air on a weekly basis on Tuesdays at 9 pm.
