After being pulled from the 'FBI' season 4, the finale gets a new air date ...

The Uvalde elementary school shooting is mentioned and discussed in this article.

The tragic mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, has resulted in the indefinite postponement of Season 4 of the crime drama series FBI. The decision to postpone the episode had been taken out of context due to its similarities with the tragic real-life event. CBS has now revealed that the episode titled 'Prodigal Son' will now be sandwiched between episodes two and three of the ongoing Season 5 and will air on October 4 at 8 p.m.

The 12th episode titled 'Under Pressure' was aired on May 24, but the Uvalde shooting was canceled. The shooter was also killed while confronting policemen, according to Deadline. The episode will not feature a "mass shooting," of a school or otherwise.

The Season 5 premiered its first episode on September 20. The episode, titled Hero's Journey, again examines Jubal's fragile relationship with his son Tyler, who was diagnosed with leukemia in Season 3. As he is assigned to investigate a kidnapping incident on the occasion of Tyler's 15th birthday, the episode follows him through his work life.

The tragic Uvalde shooting did not impact on the FBI. Apple TV+ had at the time canceled a red carpet screening for Season 2 of its program Physical, "out of respect" for the victims. The cast and creative team would later release a statement revealing that the screening for the show would be conducted privately without the involvement of the media. The former would be picked up by Fox New Media a year later.

'Prodigal Son''s synopsis remains the same;

"As the team investigates a fatal robbery that resulted in a cache of automatic weapons for the killers, they discover one of the culprits is a classmate of Jubals' son, who is reluctant to cooperate with the investigation."

The FBI has been renewed for a sixth season. Every Tuesday at 8 p.m., CBS broadcasts new episodes of the program. Starring Missy Peregrym, Zeeko Zaki, Ebonee Noel, Sela Ward, Alana de la Garza, John Boyd, and Katherine Renee Turner
