Dick Wolf’s FBI Universe just got bigger! The franchise’s second spinoff, FBI: International, is set to debut this Tuesday as part of a three-way crossover with FBI and FBI: Most Wanted, starting at 8/7c on CBS.
“‘Epic’ is the perfect word for it,” showrunner Derek Haas tells TVLine of the three-hour event. “It stretches from America to Hungary to Croatia and back again. All the characters have to work together to stop the baddest of the bad.”
FBI: International (debuting Tuesday at 10 pm) follows the FBI Fly Team, a specialized group headquartered in Budapest that tracks and neutralizes threats against Americans, dropping in wherever that may be at a moment’s notice. “They move from country to country in Europe each week, partnering with international law enforcement to bring criminals to justice,” Haas explains. “Overall, it’s a fast-paced, action-packed thrill ride.”
FBI: International stars Luke Kleintank (The Man in the High Castle, Bones) as Special Agent Scott Forrester, the team’s dedicated leader who puts his missions ahead of his personal life and “is rarely seen without the team’s ‘secret weapon’ – their trusty Schutzhund dog, Tank,” according to the official synopsis.
Tank is the franchise’s first four-legged series regular and will travel everywhere with the team. Trained in Schutzhund technique to help out whenever duty calls, the furry team player was a retired FBI cadaver dog before Forrester brought him to Europe.
The crew also includes Special Agent Jamie Kellett (Poldark‘s Heida Reed), a woman unafraid of a fight and whose extensive network of informants is a powerful resource; Special Agent Andre Raines (Orange Is the New Black‘s Carter Redwood), whose accounting background comes in handy while tracking criminal enterprises’ moving money; Special Agent Cameron Vo (Lucifer’s Vinessa Vidotto), a competitive West Point grad and the team’s newest member who excels at interrogation and strategy; and Europol Agent Katrin Jaeger (Counterpart‘s Christiane Paul), the “unflappable, multilinguistic liaison between the FBI Fly Team and each host country they inhabit.”
According to Haas, Jaeger will be a huge part of the season as the team tackles everything from “a major cryptocurrency theft ring to a global sex trafficking organization that stretches across three shows.”
With the FBI franchise, the Law & Order franchise and #OneChicago all part of Dick Wolf’s expanded television universe, it leaves the potential for a mega eight-part crossover. And while Haas “can’t even think about it,” he notes that “knowing Dick Wolf, where there’s a will, there’s a way.”

Producer Dick Wolf adds a third series to the FBI franchise on CBS with the debut of FBI: International. The new series joins FBI and FBI: Most Wanted for a three-hour crossover event on Tuesday, Sept. 21. We’ve got your preview of all three series straight from the stars and creators themselves.
Returns: Sept. 21 at 8pm ET/PT
Where We Left Off: In the Season 3 finale of FBI, five murdered men at a high-stakes gambling table lead the team to Antonio Vargas’ infamous cartel. Maggie (Missy Peregrym) and OA (Zeeko Zaki) find a person of interest and are able to track down and arrest Vargas. The real pulse-pounding action followed when Isobel (Alana De La Garza) was informed that there were three bombs located in Grand Central Station. With little time to spare, Isobel assigns Maggie and OA to find Vargas’ wife and son in hopes he would reveal the codes to disable the bombs. The two succeed in finding them, and Vargas reveals the codes, leading to a successful win for the FBI team.
What To Expect: Maggie and OA are taking a trip to Budapest! The agents will help introduce FBI: International in various crossover episodes. In an interview with Zaki, he explains: “Something happens that reminds me of a phone call I got when I was working a tip line a few months ago, and the idea that I let something slip, that I messed up, causes my character to want to try and fix the issue so that I don’t have to put a failure on the book. It is a simple story of redemption and trying to do what’s right, but also understanding that we can’t save everybody.” Peregrym is excited to be exploring a new country and new ground with her character Maggie. “What’s exciting is that we really know who we’re playing and we’ve got the format down, which makes it even more fun to come to work because you can push the envelope and try new things. I’m looking forward to seeing what other stuff they do on the personal side with each character.” A romantic relationship with the partners perhaps? “It’s funny, some people want it, some people don’t,” Zaki laughs. “I feel our dynamic proves how strong friendship can be. You know the Dick Wolf rule, it’ll take 10 to 15 years to get there, which is great. We get the character stuff in teaspoons, not ladles, which allows us to hopefully last 20 years, so we’ll see what happens.” — Holly Friedel
FBI: Most Wanted
Returns: Sept. 21 at 9pm ET/PT; airs Tuesdays at 10pm ET/PT beginning Sept. 28
Where We Left Off: In the Season 2 finale, Jess (Julian McMahon) was over the moon about girlfriend Sarah (Jen Landon) moving in. “I haven’t been this happy in years and it’s all because of you,” he told her. So, yeah, they’re doomed. Kenny (Kellan Lutz) came over to check out Jess’ motorcycle, and all hell broke loose as Sarah’s disturbed ex, Hugh (James Carpinello), made bail and came looking for payback. Shots were fired off-camera, and we’re left wondering who was on the giving/receiving end of the bullets.
What To Expect: “All I know is it’s pretty intense,” McMahon says of the Season 3 premiere, which is the second part of a three-episode FBI crossover event. McMahon says it won’t take long for the smoke to clear from the gunshots. “The resolution comes pretty quickly, like we learn what happens to our characters, but the fallout takes a while.” Joining the regular cast for Season 3 is Alexa Davalos (The Man in the High Castle) as a new member of Jess’ team. “[Jess] sees something inside of her that he thinks could be a real asset to the team, and a part of that is her attitude and her fiery character,” McMahon says. As for the spoiler everyone wants to know: Does Kenny buy Jess’ motorcycle? “I can’t give that away, man!” McMahon laughs. “There’s no point in a good bike just sitting in a garage, let’s put it that way.” — Ryan A. Berenz
Premieres: Sept. 21 at 10pm ET/PT
Airs: Tuesdays at 9pm ET/PT beginning Sept. 28
Who’s In It: Luke Kleintank, Heida Reed, Carter Redwood, Vinessa Vidotto, Christiane Paul
What’s It All About: You’ve got FBI running in New York, FBI:Most Wanted tracking fugitives across America, and now a new set of agents go International. The new series launches during a three-way franchise crossover event. It focuses on an International Fly Team based in Budapest that travels the globe neutralizing threats against Americans. “When you think of International’s intrigue, it’s much more Bourne than Bond,” says Dick Wolf. Even without the martinis or guns (they aren’t allowed to carry them!), they rely on intelligence, quick thinking and pure brawn to protect the U.S. and its people. “This is a thriller, but it’s also entertainment that at the core — will explore the real working relationship between law enforcement officers — something we’ve never done before,” adds Peter Jankowski, executive producer. “There will be a wonderful exploration of chemistry that will define this show and give it its own personality. We’re also using the ‘character’ of Budapest to keep the action going. There’s nothing like this show on TV.” —Ileane Rudolph

Part 1: "American Dreams"
A school bus with 26 elementary students is hijacked, sending the FBI into a rush to find them. With Maggie away on her undercover mission, Jess LaCroix of the FBI Fugitive Task Force and his team join the New York team. After a series of dead ends, they eventually determine that the kids are being held at an Amusement Park. They apprehend the terrorist, and find 25 of the 26 kids (the remaining kid was saved earlier by his parents who cut a deal with the terrorist). However, the wife of the perpetrator escapes, deciding to pick up where her husband left off. Lastly, Jess's daughter, Tali, is taken during an ICE raid on suspicions of being an illegal immigrant due to her skin color.
Part 2: "Reveille"
Jess works to get his daughter back from ICE, and tracks her down to a facility in Georgia. Meanwhile, the team works to determine what the terrorist's wife plans on doing. They later find out that she plans to blow up a building where immigrants, including O.A.'s aunt, are becoming American citizens. They are able to stop her, and Jess and Tali join O.A., in watching his aunt become an American citizen.
The shows were previously set in the same universe with the backdoor pilot for FBI: Most Wanted which aired as part of FBI. The backdoor pilot was titled "Most Wanted", and aired on April 2, 2019.
The crossover was originally set to air a week earlier on March 17, 2020, but ended up being pushed back a week.
Brittany Frederick with One Chicago Center said "the episodes were perfectly structured, in that one story was pretty much tied up at the end of hour one (great for syndication), but there was enough story left to go on that it felt natural to extend it into another hour." and "they did a good job of getting at least one big scene for every series regular involved in the event."
In the United States the first part of the crossover was watched live by 10.67 million viewers, and 14.57 million within seven days. The second part was watched live by 9.49 million viewers, and 12.95 million within seven days. Both parts were the most watched episode of their respective series.

‘FBI’: Dick Wolf Teases Season Premiere Crossover That Echoes Jeffrey Epstein Scandal, Explains Why Franchise Nights Work
CBS’ new all-FBI Tuesday lineup will launch September 21 with a three-hour crossover linking the three series: returning FBI andFBI: Most Wanted and new addition FBI: International.
During an FBI franchise panel at TCA this week, CBS released a trailer for the crossover (you can watch it above), with FBI executive producer Dick Wolf and cast members from all three shows discussing the premiere.
Wolf spoke of some real-life headlines that influenced the crossover story, referencing convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, his former associate Ghislaine Maxwell, as well as businessman and producer Steve Bing who died tragically last year.
“I think that the crossover embodies what these shows are supposed to be,” Wolf said. “All these shows are fiction. I start with that. But there are certain elements in this show that will remind the audience of Jeffrey Epstein and Steve Bing, and other people that have been in the papers over the past year, Ghislaine Maxwell. It’s really exciting. It’s not the same story. But it’s a story that in its scale not only justifies but thrives on three hours in a row. And we know these work. When they’re done well, they’re ratings crack. To be able to introduce International with a three-way crossover, I think is an amazing opportunity which I’m very, very grateful to the powers that be at CBS for saying, ‘Go for it and do it and hopefully knock it out of the park’.”

Kicking off the crossover premiere at 8 p.m. is FBI, which investigates the murder of a young woman following a glitzy yacht party attended by powerful men. In FBI: Most Wanted at 9 PM, the case involving two young women becomes a manhunt for the leader of a criminal enterprise. And then in FBI: International, the Budapest-based FBI fly team heads to Croatia to help capture an American fugitive who escaped to Zagreb with a 14-year-old girl.
“I’ve now seen the crossover that kicks off all three shows in two weeks, and it’s really, really good television,” Wolf said. “And the cast on the FBIs is truly extraordinary. The storytelling is great. The showrunners are all experienced members of our team. And we’re setting out on what I would call a more mature basis with the entire franchise than we have had the opportunity to be almost in any other situation this quickly.”
The FBI-branded night joins Wolf’s successful One Chicago Wednesday lineup on NBC. (Wolf also had a Law & Order Thursday on the fall NBC schedule, which did not fully materialize after he and the network scrapped the proposed new For the Defense spinoff.)
“We know this works, that there are certain dynamics that are just true when you stack these shows,” Wolf said about doing a primetime lineup of three series from the same franchise that can stage frequent crossovers. “You can look at research that tells you that everybody talks about binges, and people bingeing a series and watching (a season) in three nights. These are streaming series where the average order is 8, and you can get through a whole bunch of episodes. But the average binge is three hours. That that seems to be where people are most comfortable if they’re going to sit down and watch something. And after 40 years of doing this, the one thing I know is that if you set the table correctly for an American television audience, they’ll stay.”
FBI Tuesday’s regular lineup, FBI at 8 PM, FBI: International at 9 PM and FBI: Most Wanted at 10 PM, will debut Sept. 28.
