After one season, Sela Ward opted to leave the FBI TV series and was replaced by Alana De La Garza (who had been set to star on CBS’ upcoming spin-off, FBI: Most Wanted). Could this casting change help or hinder the ratings for season two? Will FBI be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned. *Status Update Below.
Airing on CBS, the FBI TV show stars Missy Peregrym, Zeeko Zaki, Ebonée Noel, Jeremy Sisto, and Alana De La Garza. This series follows an elite team of experts who work at the New York City office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The first-class agents work to ensure the safety of all United States citizens and tenaciously investigate cases of tremendous magnitude, including terrorism, organized crime and counterintelligence. The team members include committed Special Agent Maggie Bell (Peregrym); her partner, Special Agent Omar Adom ‘OA’ Zidan (Zaki); master motivator Assistant Special Agent in Charge Jubal Valentine (Sisto); brilliant analyst Kristen Chazal (Noel); and Assistant Special Agent in Charge Isobel Castile (de la Garza).
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

What do you think? Do you like the FBI TV series on CBS? Should it be cancelled or renewed for a third season?
*5/6/20 update: FBI has been renewed for a third season.
CBS, I just watched the FBI… you don’t pay the writer for this lame worn out script do you. I feel like I’ve seen this same show fifty times. It was so predictable that I was sure that there would be a surprise ending this time but nope same old tired repeat of the same old, same old. But I’ve got an idea for a new show! How about having some Jihadies commit an act of terrorism only in the end it turns out it was some renegade cops who did it because they’re so hateful I’ve only seen that… Read more »
Love fbi and friends most wanted. Hoping for many more seasons
Please keep the original FBI… Even if substituting Tracy Spiridakos temporarily for Missy Peregrym is a necessity!!
The new FBI Most Wanted is awful. Please keep the original FBI show and it’s cast
I love the FBI original series but the new FBI Most Wanted is awful. The actors/cast, writing are all excellent but the newer FBI Most Wanted is terrible including the writing, cast and everything about it. Please keep the original FBI show on the air and the present cast. Bob McQ (retired from 25 years in law enforcement)
I’m fine with canceling as long as Jubel is in the position. No need to yell when talking about the case & staff are 10’ away. This show is marginal at best. FBI Most Wanted is excellent
Please do not cancel. This much better than FBI: Most Wanted!
I LOVE BOTH FBI & FBI:MOST WANTED!!!!!!!!
