CBS has topped up the first season of FBI, ordering a reported nine additional episodes on top of its original 13 to bring its total to 22. The good news comes after a strong start for the procedural drama.

After its first three episodes, the series has proven to be the network's strongest new entry so far in the 2018-2019 season. Up against tough competition in This is Us on Tuesdays at 9:00pm, overnight ratings have averaged a healthy 1.2 in the adults 18-49 demo. The show has also topped all its time slot competition in total viewers over the past two weeks.

From creator Dick Wolf, FBI takes an eye-opening look at the inner-workings of the New York office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, including the combination of skills, intellect, and cutting-edge technology used to keep the city and country safe. The show's freshman run has gotten off to an interesting start, as not one, but two of its showrunners have already been replaced. Rick Eid and Derek Haas, who ran Chicago PD, will take the reigns going forward.
