Genre: Police Procedural, Drama

FBI: International

From Dick Wolf and the team behind FBI and the Law & Order brand, FBI: International is the third iteration of the FBI brand that follows the elite operatives of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's International Fly Team.

Headquartered in Budapest, they travel the world with the mission of tracking and neutralizing threats against American citizens wherever they may be, putting their lives on the line to protect the US and its people.

The Fly Team's Special Agent Scott Forrester, their accomplished and dedicated leader, puts his missions ahead of his personal life and is rarely seen without the team's secret weapon – their trusty Schutzhund dog, Tank.

Second in command is Special Agent Jamie Kellett, not afraid to tussle – in an alley or courtroom – and her extensive network of informants is a powerful resource.

Special Agent Andre Raines shines in the field and makes good use of his accounting background in tracking criminal enterprises' moving money.

The group's newest member is Special Agent Cameron Vo, a competitive West Point grad who excels at interrogation and strategy.

A key part of the mix is the unflappable Europol Agent Katrin Jaeger, a multilinguistic liaison between the FBI Fly Team and each host country they inhabit.

Always at the scene where American interests are at risk, FBI: International is a globe-trotting depiction of law enforcement overseas.

The Real Housewives of Orange County 16

After a five-year hiatus, Heather Dubrow makes her return to the franchise joining veteran housewives Shannon Storms Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson.

The ladies are introduced to new Housewives Dr. Jen Armstrong and Noella Bergener.

Coming up this season:

Heather is back living the dream in her 22,000 square foot home in Crystal Cove with her husband Terry and four children.

Their kids are starting to look at colleges and find their own voices, especially Max who recently wrote a book for parents about teenage sexuality.

After many years, Heather and Shannon reunite and instantly find themselves at odds over loyalty and betrayal.

Heather also introduces a friend of hers to the group only to find out a shocking truth behind who she really is.

Convinced that it's never too late to have fun and find true happiness, Shannon's business is on the rise and her relationship with John is thriving.

Shannon questions who her true friends are in the group, after she finds herself in hot water with Heather, leading to issues of trust with Gina and Emily.

And with her oldest daughter away at school and the twins prepping for college, she is starting to fear her looming empty nest.

Gina is looking to the future and works to launch her own skincare business.

With her boyfriend Travis' unflinching support, Gina continues to co-parent her three children with her ex-husband Matt.

Still close to her bestie Emily, Gina becomes fast friends with fellow New Yorker Heather and the two take a trip to the Big Apple.

As Gina puts her hardships behind her and her self-esteem grows, the ladies wonder if she is just confident or too arrogant.

Emily returns with a renewed look after a couple of plastic surgeries - a new jawline and bustline.

With Shane busy working after finally passing the bar, Emily finds herself with more time on her hands to dedicate to her daughter Annabelle's upcoming Mormon baptism and to helping wrongly convicted individuals in the justice system.

Forever inquisitive, Emily often inserts herself in the middle of conflicts but is also accused of being an instigator when she asks Noella about her looming divorce.

After meeting Gina and Emily last year, aesthetic MD Dr. Jen Armstrong immediately integrates into the group by performing cosmetic procedures on the ladies.

Emotionally guarded at first, Jen develops a quick bond with Heather but has trouble making a real connection with Noella.

Married to her husband Ryne, she is a proud mother to three children.

She embodies the alpha female persona as she runs her own practice, provides for her family and helps her mom prepare for a move to the OC.

Dr. Jen has always been an overachiever and is now launching a division of her practice that specialises in a unique magnetic brain treatment.

Noella Bergener's world is turned upside down when her husband unexpectedly files for divorce.

Her lavish lifestyle gets ripped out from underneath her as the divorce poses questions about her financial future while she cares for her children.

While her shocking predicament makes the others question what is really going on, Noella finds solace in her friendship with a sympathetic Shannon.

With news of a recent death in her family, Noella finds her emotions, patience and friendships tested, but that doesn't keep her from doubling down and speaking her mind even when it results in a fiery backlash.

In the Season 16 premiere, "Fancy Pants is Back": After a five-year hiatus, Heather Dubrow is back.

Gina and Emily pay a visit to Dr. Jen Armstrong for some OC style self-care.

Heather meets Noella, whose fun and fast lifestyle is enough to make anyone blush.

Things go awry when Shannon spills a secret about her old friend Nicole, leaving Gina and Emily in an awkward position.

After an uncomfortable lunch, Gina wonders whether her promise to Shannon is worth more than her integrity.

Heather invites the women to her home for an elaborate sushi party.
