Under the agreement, The CW will get the first airings this summer, then HBO Max will stream episodes a day after their broadcast debut along with The CW’s own ad-supported streaming platforms. [Source: The Live Feed]

CBS has ordered “FBI: International,” a third series in Dick Wolf’s “FBI” franchise, along with renewing the other two series (“FBI” and “FBI: Most Wanted”) – meaning all three will be run through the 2021-22 broadcast season.

The renewals will bring the original series to a fourth season, and “Most Wanted” to a second. The original still regularly pulls in over 11 million viewers a week and is broadcast’s No. 3 drama. [Source: The Live Feed]
