Per Deadline, this spin-off is still in the deal-making phase, but the popularity of FBI and FBI: Most Wanted make it likely to happen. They currently air on Tuesday nights and are among the network’s highest-rated series.
This is not the first time a second spin-off for the FBI TV series has been mentioned as a possibility. CBS Entertainment President Kelly Kahl teased the possibility of a third FBI series in May 2020 by saying:
“We are always talking to Dick [Wolf] and Dick is always bouncing ideas off of us and I can’t rule anything out.”
Wolf started talking about a new FBI series for CBS in January 2020. The delay in getting this spin-off off the ground sooner is likely due to the pandemic and the production shutdowns that began last March.
