Luke Kleintank Exits ‘FBI: International’ After Three Seasons

FBI International

Luke Kleintank, known for his role as Supervisory Special Agent Scott Forrester in the CBS drama series ‘FBI: International‘, has announced his departure from the show. Kleintank shared the news on April 27, 2024, revealing that his final episode as Agent Forrester will air on May 7, 2024, with two more episodes left in the current season. This marks an unexpected development for the series, which has been renewed for a fourth season.

Kleintank’s decision to leave the show stems from his commitment to his family, as he expressed in his statement: “This decision is driven by my unwavering commitment to my family, whose love and well-being are paramount in my life.” The actor has a young daughter and resides with his family in Hungary, where ‘FBI: International’ is filmed. This marks a shift in priorities for Kleintank, who intends to focus on his personal life and spend more time with his loved ones.

Kleintank’s exit from ‘FBI: International’ adds to the recent cast changes on the show. In February 2024, Heida Reed, who portrayed Special Agent Jamie Kellett, Forrester’s second-in-command and on-again, off-again girlfriend, left the series. In her final episode, Kellett’s character announced she was leaving the Fly Team and transferring to a position in Washington, D.C. With both Kleintank and Reed’s characters exiting the series, ‘FBI: International’ faces a significant shift in its core cast.

The show’s producers have not yet announced Kleintank’s replacement or how they plan to write out Agent Forrester. Fans are anxiously speculating about the nature of his departure, with some fearing that the character will meet an untimely end, similar to the fate of Julian McMahon’s character Jess LaCroix in the sister series ‘FBI: Most Wanted’. Others are hoping for a happier resolution, perhaps involving a reunion with Kellett’s character.

Kleintank’s departure from ‘FBI: International’ concludes a three-season run that began in 2021. During this time, he balanced the demands of a leading role with his family life, taking paternity leave after the birth of his daughter in October 2022.
