FBI: Most Wanted is officially returning for a fifth season in February 2024.
The FBI spin-off focuses on the work of the FBI’s Fugitive Task Force, the organisation responsible for tracking down on-the-run criminals who make up the Bureau's infamous Most Wanted list.
FBI: Most Wanted has seen some major cast shake-ups over the years, with the Fugitive Task Force initially led by Jess LaCroix (Julian McMahon) before his season 3 departure. He was replaced by Remy Scott (Dylan McDermott).
McDermott will be back for season 5, while other key players expected to return include Roxy Sternberg and Keisha Castle-Hughes, who play former NYPD detective Sheryll Barnes and hacker/intelligence analyst Hana, respectively.
Unfortunately, fan favourite character Special Agent Kristin Gaines (Alexa Davalos) will not be returning for the fifth season, despite no suggestion of the character's departure at the end of season 4.
Meanwhile, new additions to the cast in season 5 include Shantel VanSanten, who will be moving from FBI and taking on the role of Special Agent Nina Chase in the upcoming instalment, Deadline reports.
