CBS sticks with three FBIs

In 2018, CBS got into the Dick Wolf business with FBI. Since then, they added two more shows to the franchise, FBI: Most Wanted and FBI: International.

All three shows are doing well. Therefore, it should not be a surprise that CBS picked all of them up for next season today.

“The All-FBI Tuesday is a powerful force to be reckoned with on our primetime schedule,” said Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment. “Dick Wolf and the talent in front of and behind the camera on all three series continue to deliver top-notch storytelling, riveting action and intrigue that has captivated a dedicated fanbase steadily across multiple seasons. We are excited to see what next season holds for all these heroic characters.”

With these renewals, 8 out of Wolf Entertainment’s 9 scripted shows will be on the schedule next season. The only series waiting to hear its fate is Law & Order: Organized Crime.


NBC picks up all of Dick Wolf’s show but one

Today was a very good day for Dick Wolf, but it wasn’t an excellent one. That is because NBC picked up Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D., Law & Order, and Law & Order: SVU for another season. However, they have yet to make a decision about Law & Order: OC, which stars Chris Meloni.

I can see them cancelling that series and moving him back to SVU so that Stabler and Benson can finally be together. And then giving Wolf a new scripted procedural on the network.

After speaking with my cop friend yesterday, I would love to see one based on the Internal Affairs Division. What would you like to see them tackle next?


Will Severide make it to Brett and Casey’s wedding on Chicago Fire?

On February 28th at 9p, Brett (Kara Killmer) and Casey (Jesse Spencer) are finally getting married on Chicago Fire. However, they will be saying I do in a smelly place, as in a fish shop and not the aquarium that she was promised.

But their nuptials won’t stink. That is because Severide (Taylor Kinney) will be back to see them walk down the aisle.

The bromance between Severide and Casey is strong because both actors return from their hiatuses to see their Best Man on their special days.

So, as we say goodbye to Killmer and Spencer, we are left wondering if Kinney will say hello again.

While we don’t know that, it is nice to know he will be there for the wedding.


Sam Waterson is dun-dun at Law & Order

NBC announced today that Sam Waterson is leaving Law & Order after over 400 episodes.

“It’s a pleasure to talk directly like this to the backbone of Law & Order’s absolutely amazing audience. The time has come for me to move on and take Jack McCoy with me,” the actor wrote. “There’s sadness in leaving, but I’m just too curious about what’s next. An actor doesn’t want to let himself get too comfortable. I’m more grateful to you than I can say. L&O’s continuing and amazing long run, along with its astounding come-back, is all thanks to you and to Dick Wolf, but for whose vision, patience, perseverance, and unique combination of creative and business talents, none of this would have happened. I feel very blessed. I hope to see you all on the flip side.”

Since joining the series in 1994, he has won a SAG Award for the role and was multi-nominated for both an Emmy and Golden Globe Award.

District Attorney Jack McCoy’s s episode will be on February 22nd. Scandal’s Tony Goldwyn will take over as the new District Attorney.

The good news is that Taylor Kinney is returning to Chicago Fire this season. The bad news is that two actors are leaving the first responders procedural.

First, we learned that Kara Killmer, who plays Sylvie Brett, is leaving and will most likely join Casey. And today, Deadline reports that Alberto Rosende, who plays Blake Gallo, will depart the series in the season premiere on January 17th.

Deadline says that his exit was fully amicable.

Personally, I think there are other characters that they could’ve gotten rid of before his. But I am not the one doing the hiring and firing.
