Casting News - Julian McMahon Leaving CBS' 'FBI: Most Wanted' After Three Seasons

Casting News - January 22, 2022

CBS' FBI: Most Wanted.

  • Julian McMahon will exit the cast of the drama during its current third season. He has led the drama as FBI Special Agent Jess LaCroix since it first aired as a backdoor pilot of FBI in April 2019. Production on his final episode is set to begin this week and will air on March 8. The show will introduce a new character later this season to fill the void as the head of the Most Wanted Unit.
  • McMahon released the following statement on his exit: "Over the past few months, the producers of FBI: Most Wanted and I have had discussions about my departure from the show in favor of additional creative pursuits and the transition of my character Jess LaCroix. These ongoing conversations have given us an opportunity to orchestrate a seamless and productive way for me to leave the show. I would like to express the gratitude and admiration I have had working with Dick Wolf and Peter Jankowski. I'm extremely proud of the work we have done together and put the development of this show, and my character Jess, at the top of my professional experience list. I wish the show, and its cast & crew, the greatest success in the future. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to play Jess; he is a good man."
