Here is everything we know about FBI: International.

How to watch FBI: International

The first season FBI: International was come to a close. If you want to catch up with the series or rewatch any of the episodes there are a couple of ways to do it.

If you are a pay-TV or live TV streaming service subscriber (FuboTV, Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV)that has access to CBS, you can login in with your account information to CBS.com, where the entire season of FBI: International is now available to watch.

The other way is to be a subscriber to Paramount Plus, which is available as a standalone service or can be added as a channel on other streaming services, including Prime Video.

Will there be an FBI: International season 2?

CBS has announced that FBI: International, along with FBI and FBI: Most Wanted, are getting two season renewals. That means there will be a season 2 and season 3 of FBI: International for fans to enjoy. The trio of shows will keep their spots in the Tuesday lineup, with FBI: International airing at 9 pm ET/PT.

What is the premise of FBI: International?

The FBI is America’s most famous federal law enforcement agency, and the series at CBS are covering a wide range of the things that it deals with. While FBI focuses on the agency’s New York office and FBI: Most Wanted is about capturing the agency’s most dangerous wanted criminals, FBI: International will be, as the name suggests, a globe-trotting series.

FBI: International will focus on an elite team of agents as they travel the world with the mission of protecting American citizens wherever they may be. It should make for some fun episodes in a number of unique locales (it is shot in Budapest, Hungary).

Who is in the FBI: International cast?

The actors who make up the FBI: International cast will include Luke Kleintank (The Man in the High Castle) as the head of the team, Heida Reed (Poldark) as his second-in-command and Vinessa Vidotto (Lucifer, Hacks) as another team member.

That trio was announced by TVLine (opens in new tab), and are the only three confirmed cast members for the new series; though German actress Christiane Paul is listed by IMDb as being in the pilot. 

Is there an FBI: International trailer?
