The hit CBS series “FBI: Most Wanted” is losing one of its main characters ahead of its Season 3 debut this fall.
A spokesperson for CBS confirmed to TV Line that Clinton Skye’s “special assignment” is coming to an end. Actor Nathaniel Arcand alluded to his departure from the show in a recent Instagram post. He shared a personal photo with the caption, “Moving forward/Don’t look back. Must. Say. Bye. Bye.”
“FBI: Most Wanted” is a police procedural drama series that follows the day-to-day lives of agents assigned to the Bureau’s Fugitive Task Force. These agents are often assigned to high-profile targets on the FBI’s Most Wanted lists.
The team is led by agent Jess LaCroix, played by Julian McMahon. Special Agent Skye is one of LaCroix’s most seasoned teammates. He’s also a deadly marksman and a trained lawyer. If that’s not complicated enough, Skye is also LaCroix’s brother-in-law and the uncle of LaCroix’s daughter, Talia.
Agent Skye appeared in the first three episodes of Season 2, but has been on “special assignment” since then.
