Fans of the hit CBS procedural “FBI” will be excited to learn that the show is officially underway on Season 4. With the new season’s premiere set for September, the cast has a lot of work to do over the next month and change. Special Agent in Charge Isobel Castille actress Alana De La Garza posted a picture after a successful first day.
The cast was all smiles in the picture from the “FBI” set. And why wouldn’t they be? After all, “FBI” is quickly becoming an all-encompassing CBS on par with that of “NCIS.” “FBI: Most Wanted” is currently headed into its third season. And “FBI: International” is currently in development and is slated to make its debut in September. In fact, all three of the franchise’s shows are going to share each other’s success in a three-hour crossover on the same night.
But back to the flagship show at hand. Alana De La Garza’s picture was taken selfie-style. She fills out the left side of the frame. Then, from left to right, comes Special Agent Maggie Bell actress Missy Peregrym. Then comes Special Agent Omar Adom actor Zeeko Zaki, who is proudly holding up his fingers to represent Season 4 of the show. Next is Special Agent Stuart Scola actor Johnny Boyd. And finally, on the right edge is Assistant Special Agent in Charge Jubal Valentine actor Jeremy Sisto.
‘Law & Order’ Legend Dick Wolf at Helm of ‘FBI’ Franchise
Dick Wolf seems to have network television in the palm of his hand. The producer is partly responsible for the appeal of procedural drama in the first place. For reference, his original “Law & Order” gave rise to a handful of successful spinoffs. Two of them are still going strong to this day.
Now, fans may be wondering, isn’t NBC Dick Wolf’s home? Why is he creating and producing shows for CBS? Well, the answer is simple. Wolf has filled up all of the primetime time slots on NBC. Some of his current titles include “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago Med,” “Law & Order: SVU,” and “Law & Order: Organized Crime.”
There simply wasn’t room for an entirely new franchise like “FBI” at NBC. But Dick Wolf has proven that regardless of the network, his shows work.
“‘FBI’ is the fastest growing brand on television and our partner Dick Wolf has found yet another creative way to expand its universe. ‘FBI: International’ is an intriguing and distinct drama that perfectly complements its compelling siblings, ‘FBI’ and ‘FBI: Most Wanted,’ creating an enviable triple-threat for next season that will fit seamlessly across our network lineup,” CBS president Kelly Kahl said in a March statement.
