When Will FBI Season 3 Release on CBS?

‘FBI’ is an American crime series and is structured like a procedural. It comes from veteran Dick Wolf and happens to be one of the most-watched shows on CBS. As the title suggests, the drama takes us into the personal and professional lives of agents working for the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the New York office.

Over the seasons, we have seen the elite team combining their intellect, talents, and resources to keep the city and the country safe. Naturally, you might be curious about whether ‘FBI’ Season 3 is in the works, considering that Season 2 did not get to air the desired finale. Let’s find out.

FBI Season 3 Release Date

‘FBI’ Season 3 got renewed later than usual, but CBS has announced that a new season has been greenlit. The news came on May 6, 2020, and it is hardly surprising considering that ‘FBI’ is one of the best-loved shows on the network. However, it remains to be seen if the unaired episodes of Season 2 are released separately or added to Season 3.

Moreover, with the coronavirus pandemic and the lockdown, the series cannot film for the new season. Typically, we’d expect ‘FBI’ Season 3 to stick to the pattern and come out in September 2020. However, taking the delays into account, ‘FBI’ Season 3 is most likely to release in January 2021.

FBI Season 3 Cast: Who can be in it?

Among the characters who will surely return in Season 3 are Omar Adom “O. A.” Zidan, played by Zeeko Zaki, and Jubal Valentine, played by Jeremy Sisto. The latter is the special agent in charge, and the former is Maggie Bell’s partner. Towards the end of Season 2, we see OA displeased about Maggie’s absence.

Naturally, it makes us wonder whether the new season will see Maggie return. She’s a deeply committed Fed, bent on impressing those she works with and protecting the public. Missy Peregrym plays the part, and is likely to reprise the role, should Maggie return. Wolf’s shows often have crossovers, to denote they exist in the same universe. However, for the first time, ‘FBI’ has had a crossover with a show on another network. We’ve seen Detective Hailey Upton from ‘Chicago P.D.‘ in the series. It will be great to see more of Tracy Spiridakos in the role, and perhaps we might see other guest stars from familiar shows as well.

FBI Season 3 Plot: What can it be About?

‘FBI’ follows the exploits of the Feds in the New York office, but currently, we don’t know much about the story in Season 3. It is primarily because of the way Season 2 ends abruptly. However, we do know that Maggie is away on an undercover mission, and OA is displeased that he does not have any way to communicate with her.

It remains to be seen if her former partner takes matters into his hands, trying to assist Maggie. It also raises the question of whether Maggie will be majorly involved in the new occurrences. With detective Upton arriving, we see how OA bonds with his new partner. Perhaps she will become a recurring cast member, especially as we see OA remark about how similar she is to Maggie. Whatever be the case, we are sure the team will put their best foot forward to save the day.
