CBS announced today that FBI has been renewed for a second season. The early pickup comes in the midst of the procedural drama's freshman run.

The new series premiered last fall as part of the network's 2018-2019 lineup. After an impressive first few weeks, the network wasted no time in topping up its initial 13-episode run with a back-nine order for a full season's worth of 22.

The show's strong start has made it CBS' #1 new entry in the 2018-2019 season and a Top 10 broadcast series. While it comes up short against This is Us on Tuesdays at 9:00pm, ratings regularly best its other time slot competition.

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.
