Premise

The series centers on inner workings of the New York office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). This elite unit brings to bear all their talents, intellect, and technical expertise on major cases in order to keep New York and the country safe. Born into a multi-generational law enforcement family, Special Agent Maggie Bell commits deeply to the people she works with as well as those she protects. Her partner is Special Agent Omar Adom "O. A." Zidan, a West Point graduate from Bushwick who spent two years undercover for the DEA before being cherry-picked by the FBI. Overseeing them is Special Agent in Charge Dana Mosier, who operates under intense pressure and has undeniable command authority. The team also includes Assistant Special Agent in Charge Jubal Valentine, the nerve center of the office whose ability to easily relate to and engage with both superiors and subordinates makes him a master motivator. Kristen Chazal is the team's most valued resource, a brilliant analyst recruited straight out of college who can piece together the big picture faster than anyone. These first-class agents tenaciously investigate cases including terrorism, organized crime, and counterintelligence. [9]

Starting in season 2, Stuart Scola, a former Wall Street trader-turned-Special Agent joins the team and is partnered with Kristen, who transitions into field work at the same time. Also, Isobel Castille takes Mosier's place as team supervisor following the latter's retirement. At the start of season 3, Kristen transfers to Dallas, Texas, and is replaced by Tiffany Wallace, a former NYPD officer and White Collar Division agent.

Production

Development

The origins of the series go back to the Television Critics Association summer 2016 press tour, where Wolf revealed plans for a crime drama series, placed in New York and set in the world of the FBI. Wolf's original plan was to introduce it on the NBC network as a planned spin-off to his New York crime drama Law & Order: Special Victims Unit , where it was intended to introduce an FBI agent character, but NBC ultimately did not go through with it and the idea was later put on hold for different reasons. It's Wolf's first drama series to launch on a network other than NBC in 15 years. CBS officially picked up to series on September 20, 2017. The series is produced by CBS Television Studios and Universal Television. [24]

On January 25, 2019, during the TCA press tour, FBI was renewed for a second season, [25] which is set to premiere on September 24, 2019. [26] On May 7, 2019, following the renewal it was announced that Milena Govich joined as co-executive producer and director. [27]

On March 12, 2020, Universal Television has suspended the production of the last three episodes of the second season following the COVID-19 pandemic. [28] However, on May 6, 2020, CBS announced that it was renewed for a third season which premiered on November 17, 2020. [4] [5] [6] On March 24, 2021, CBS announced that it was renewed the series for a fourth season, [7] which premiered on September 21, 2021. [8]

On May 16, 2018, the day of scheduling the series for fall 2018, Nielsen was announced to have left the series for undisclosed reasons. [29] [30]

On July 13, 2018, Sela Ward was cast in the second episode as Dana Mosier who fulfills a similar role to Connie Nielsen who was in the first episode. [15] During the season finale, it was indicated that Ward would be departing the series after the first season. [16] On July 9, 2019, Alana de la Garza—who played Isobel Castille in a guest appearance in the first season—was promoted to the main cast for the second season; she also recurs on the spin-off series FBI: Most Wanted .
