CBS has ordered to series FBI: International while renewing the original FBI and spin-off FBI: Most Wanted.

FBI: International marks the third iteration of the successful FBI brand from Emmy Award-winning executive producer Dick Wolf.

FBI: International follows the elite agents of the FBI’s International division as they travel the world with the mission of protecting Americans wherever they may be.

Haas will serve as showrunner.  FBI: International is scheduled to debut in a crossover episode of FBI and FBI: Most Wanted next season.

“CBS has been a great creative partner, and they understand the value of the growing FBI brand,” Wolf commented. “The showrunners, writers, producers, cast, crew and everyone on our team have delivered exciting and creative shows that clearly resonate with viewers. FBI: International offers us the opportunity to expand with a powerful new drama.”

FBI is the fastest growing brand on television and our partner Dick Wolf has found yet another creative way to expand its universe,” said Kelly Kahl, president of CBS Entertainment. “FBI: International is an intriguing and distinct drama that perfectly complements its compelling siblings, FBI and FBI: Most Wanted, creating an enviable triple-threat for next season that will fit seamlessly across our network lineup.”
