CBS pulled the season finale of its show “FBI” after the deadly elementary school shooting in Texas.

The network said Tuesday that it would not air the show’s Season 4 finale, titled “Prodigal Son.” The decision was made by CBS after a gunman killed at least 19 children and two adults at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

The finale’s storyline involved a suspected student’s participation in a deadly robbery. It’s unclear whether the episode will air in the future.


The synopsis reads: “As the team investigates a deadly robbery that garnered a cache of automatic weapons for the killers, they discover one of the perps is a classmate of Jubal’s son, who is reluctant to cooperate.”

A gunman killed 19 children and two adults at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, about 80 miles west of San Antonio, on May 24, 2022.

The network re-broadcast the show’s 12th episode, “Under Pressure,” in place of the season finale.

Apple TV+ also canceled a red carpet event for Season 2 of its show “Physical,” which stars Rose Byrne, because of the shooting.
