Dick Wolf's TV take on the Federal Bureau of Investigation returns to the small screen soon as part of the 2024 release date schedule for the FBI franchise.

Known for his work on series such as Law & Order and Chicago, Wolf started his work on the FBI series in 2018, which led to two spin-off series in the form of FBI: Most Wanted (2020) and FBI: International (2021).

The original series highlights the New York City field office criminal division of the FBI as the team keeps the Big Apple and the entire USA safe.

Most Wanted, as the show title suggests, centers on the New York Fugitive Task Force going after the FBI's "Most Wanted" list while International follows the organization's "Fly Team" in Budapest, locating threats to the USA in Europe and worldwide.
