“FBI” has been renewed for Season 5, and here viewers can expect the season premiere
Dick Wolf has created some of the most compelling police procedural drama in the last 30 years. His journey as a creator began in 1989 with Gideon Oliver, but his 1990 series Law & Order became a smash hit, running for 20 seasons on NBC. Since then he has been part of several amazing dramas including the “FBI” series. The FBI franchises began in 2018 and opened to rave reviews. Most importantly, it received a lot of love from viewers.
Titled “FBI,” the parent series focuses primarily on the inner workings of the criminal division of the New York Bureau of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The entire team is responsible for protecting people from all the heinous crimes happening across the state. The first four seasons were hugely successful, with the average viewership for each season exceeding 10 million.
