Law & Order, One Chicago, and NCIS aren't the only TV franchises coming back with several seasons across multiple shows after the 2023 writers and actors strikes. The FBI franchise returns this year with three new seasons for its three ongoing shows, and here's all we've learned so far.

Much like Law & Order and One Chicago, the FBI franchise was co-created for TV by writer-producer Dick Wolf. It all began with the premiere of the parent show in 2018, and it's been expanded with spinoffs, finding similar success to that of Wolf's other franchises so far. A big difference, however, is that the FBI shows air on CBS instead of NBC.

The main FBI series will be back for season 6 starting on Tuesday, February 13, filling the 8pm ET slot on CBS. The first episode of the season will be titled "All the Rage" — its brief synopsis can be read below:

The FBI series (often called The FBIs) are currently broadcast on CBS, and are later made partially available on a number of services, including Paramount+ and Apple TV+ in the US.

FBI (2018) is centered on the inner workings of the New York City field office criminal division of the FBI. This elite unit uses all their talents, intellect, and technical expertise to resolve major cases that include terrorism, organized crime, and counterintelligence.

FBI: Most Wanted (2020) is the first FBI spinoff, born from the parent series' first season. It focuses on the work of the FBI's New York Fugitive Task Force, which tracks and captures the highly notorious and dangerous criminals who are on the FBI's Most Wanted list.

FBI: International (2021) is the second FBI spinoff, and follows members of the FBI's international "Fly Team" — elite Special Agents headquartered in Budapest, Hungary. They locate and neutralize threats against American interests around the world, principally in Europe. While it's the youngest of the FBI shows, it's already found tons of success.
