FBI Star Missy Peregrym Temporarily Exits Show To Care For Newborn

By Movieguide® Contributor

FBI star Missy Peregrym recently announced that she would step away from the CBS show for a little on maternity leave. 

“Tonight is my last episode of the season – you don’t want to miss it! I’m off for maternity leave now…,” she captioned an Instagram post. 

So, how will the showrunners explain her character, Special Agent Maggie Bell’s, absence?

According to TV Line, her last episode before going on maternity leave sees her character and fellow agent O.A. (played by Zeeko Zaki) track down a terrorist. While they do manage to defeat the bad guy, Maggie gets trapped in a lab with an open container of deadly sarin gas. 

Her character will make it out, but her exposure to the toxic gas means a lengthy recovery at the hospital – the perfect explanation for her absence. 

“The reality is that [Maggie’s recovery] is a journey, it’s going to be a while,” showrunner Rick Eid said. “When she does come back, whenever that is, she’ll probably, for the most part, be the same ol’ Maggie, but she did go through something pretty traumatic. There are not only physical injuries but maybe some emotional ones, and that may affect how she sees the world and how she handles cases.”
