FBI to Stream on Paramount+ in the U.S.


ViacomCBS has licensed the hit drama FBI from NBCUniversal in a multiyear content licensing agreement featuring exclusive U.S. streaming rights.

The first three seasons will be available to stream on Paramount+ in the U.S. on October 1. The fourth and current season will continue to air on CBS and be available to stream live and on-demand on the CBS app and Paramount+.

As part of the deal, ViacomCBS also has non-exclusive media rights for its portfolio of U.S. cable networks.

“CBS is the proud home of Dick Wolf’s signature FBI series, and we look forward to growing its considerable audience even further with more viewer touchpoints domestically and globally,” said George Cheeks, president and CEO of CBS and chief content officer for news and sports for Paramount+. “We are committed to maximizing the power and impact of one of our most popular franchises by growing the FBI brand across the ViacomCBS portfolio.”

“Over the course of NBCUniversal’s long relationship with Dick Wolf, we’ve seen the power of the Wolf Entertainment shows to resonate with viewers around the world, and FBI is no exception,” said Belinda Menendez, president and chief revenue officer for NBCUniversal Global Distribution. “ViacomCBS is a valuable partner to us, and we’re thrilled that through this agreement, audiences across America will soon have more ways to discover and enjoy this hugely successful show.”
