FBI is losing a series regular.
Sela Ward has revealed that she is bowing out of the CBS procedural drama after just one season in the role of special agent Dana Mosier.
The actress took to Twitter to say her goodbyes to the show following the airing of FBI Season 1 Episode 23 -- the show's first season finale.
“So grateful for my time on FBI,” she wrote alongside a picture of her behind Dana's desk while filming the series.
“Such a wonderful show with an amazing cast and crew. Much love to all of our fans of the show. Thank you for everything!”
The news did not go down well with fans of the series, who commented in their droves about exit.
"I’m sad to see you go, Sela. Thank you for giving #FBICBS a strong foundation to start off with," one fan said, adding:
"Dana’s guidance and insight into the characters was always a joy to watch. I wish you nothing but the best in the future."
Added another fan:
"THANK YOU, SELA!!! While I'm heartbroken we won't get to see more of YOU and Dana, I'm super grateful for the time we did."
"You were my favourite part of the show. On to your next adventure!"
If you watch FBI online, you know that Dana made a big move on "Closure." She allowed Maggie (Missy Peregrym) to work on a case that involved a woman who had information about who murdered her husband.
By the end, Dana revealed that she was leaving her post behind.
When the episode went out, it was still possible for Dana to have a change of heart whenever FBI Season 2 got underway, but that won't be the case now.
Ward was a later addition to the series. She joined when Connie Nielsen bowed out following the pilot.
